This kit was pretty easy to put together all 3 rockets in less than an hour. Built these 3 with my 5-year-old son - he enjoyed helping to put on the stickers, but I had to use the model cement to put the plastic fins together.
The new 6 parachutes that come with these rockets don't inflate at ejection very well. I'm not sure all the shroud lines on these pre-assembled 'chutes were cut ideally to allow them to fully open. Either they needed more length and/or they weren't all the same length, causing part of the 'chute to collapse. Streamers would probably have been better. Still these rockets are small enough that they could still have a complete 'chute failure and still not incur any damage upon landing.
