My 12 year old nephew liked this, but it is not something he would have probably been able to assemble himself. After a few hours of cursing this thing out, we finally succeeded in assembling the final product. The problem is, that the nuts and bolts are so tiny, there is no way to securely fasten them. When he picks up the dinosaur, sometimes a nut will fall off, and let me tell you, it is not easy to put back on! Overall it was a cool dinosaur for him and something different than the typical toys.
I bought this for my 11 year old nephew and he loved, but putting it together was a bit of a challenge like others have stated. Here are a couple things you can do to make the project more enjoyable.
Use the tip (wire cutter part) of a pair of heavy duty wire crimpers such as http://www.amazon.com/Greenlee-KP1022D-Terminal-Crimping-Dipped/dp/B004445QGG, or similar, to reach in and deform the threaded part of the screw that sticks out after tightening the nut. This will prevent the nuts from coming off as you're assembling the T-Rex and also make for a more durable toy. For best results, I think you'd want to do this to each screw right after tightening it. There really is no undoing this procedure, however, so make sure you're ready to make it permanent first.
Instead of using the cheap teeth sticker that came with the kit, I used the same crimping tool to cut teeth into the jaws. I was only able to cut a few teeth into each jaw before running out of room but the...
like most of the reviews say it is a little hard to put together but looks really good when you do finish it.the directions arnt as bad as some reviews say they are the only thing they really dont explain is how to bend the body pieces around.i would also recommend making this over something that will catch the pieces if you drop them the nuts are especially small and easy to lose.also the pieces arnt labeled at all so you have to make sure you look carefully at the pieces to make sure you have the right one as some pieces look similar.also i wish the instructions had actual sizes of the screws so you can just place them on the picture and figure out which screw was which so a ruler that measures in mm is helpful to make sure your putting the right screws where they go because there are no extra screws in the kit.i also got this kit as a discount from the amazon warehouse deals not sure i would pay full price for this kit because it is a little hard to make
