My take: As soon as I opened the box and saw the Extreme Sports product I knew it would be perfect for my neighbor’s son who was thrilled to receive it. The boys then got to pick their favorites and we were on our way to build some fun new memories. Before we got started I innocently asked if they would prefer to have their dad or me help to which they replied “girls can’t build these things Mom”, which made me quite irritated. Just to show them that a girl can indeed build these I set about the next day buidling the SUPER MARIO: Prongo™ Building Set. Here are a couple of pictures mid-build:
And the finished product:
To see their jaws drop in amazement was worth every minute it took me to put it together. Lesson learned as well because when we build the Pac-Man series they didn’t even question that I would be helping. We waited until the baby was taking her afternoon nap and put together all four of the sets:
Each product was easy to put together and the illustrations were simple to follow. I am actually amazed at how stable the Super Mario set it because the boy have moved it several times around the house trying to escape their baby sister.
