"I picked this up for my son's 8th birthday. He is a serious Lego enthusiast! We have built upwards of 30 sets since he was three or four years old and this was easily in our top 5 favorites! Being an 8 year old boy he loves all things dragon! The set was challenging but not difficult and he enjoyed building it very much. As an added bonus, he's also able to play with it like a toy. And he does! A lot! I wouldn't hesitate to buy other figures in the set and will for Christmas."
"This was purchased for my Suns recent 8th birthday. Since he was very close to the upper age limit on this I was hoping it would be a fun and easy little build for him. And it was! The directions, as always, we're super easy for him to follow! And the build was broken up into several smaller builds which made him feel accomplished I want to keep going. I would say he had this entire set built with minimal help in less than an hour. And he's taking it down for play several times daily for the last several weeks. Definitely worth the money!"
