I bought this kit for my 8 y/o daughter for Christmas, thinking it would be a nice afternoon of mommy/daughter time. I am telling you right now, unless you have a much older child, run now! She loves crafts, and I consider myself competent at DIY projects. The pictures on the box make the kit look pretty straight forward, and I wasn't worried. As soon as I opened the box, I knew we were in trouble. The instructions have pictures, but they expect you to put together a doll with cheap double sided tape and hold the hair on with a couple of strips of velcro. Instead of my daughter getting to put together a pretty ballerina doll, I ended up spending hours trying (and mostly failing) to get her put together. My daughter got bored and asked why they would say it was a kit for kids when it's so complicated that mommy was even having trouble. It might be an OK project if you have a hot glue gun and just forwent the tape, otherwise I can't think of a situation that this is a manageable kids project.
