Well, this is the first Cobi model that I have made, and I have to say that after fully constructing this model, it is certainly an awesome product. I must point out that even though this product is targeted at 5-year-olds, I would recommend that adults stay with the younger children while they are building it as I found it a bit tricky in some places, some bits were a bit fiddly to put on. Plus, there is also the risk of choking as there are small parts in this kit.
The design of the Jeep has a couple of problems, for starters, the bonnet of the Jeep is a bit hard to open, I can't open it with my fingers, or my nails, so I have to use my teeth and even that is a bit awkward. Also, the seats on the Jeep are bad, I think that a better design would be for them to replace the 2x2 smooth tile with a regular 2x2 tile that actually has pegs on it so that the man just clips onto the chair instead of sitting on it and sliding off as soon as you drive the Jeep around a corner.
The look of the Jeep once it is finished is very good, but if you want to take it apart and put it back together again, then do not put the stickers on. The durability of this product looks good, the parts are made of a very tough plastic, and so they are hard to break, although some of the parts on this Jeep look like they can come off if the model is knocked around too much.
The price is very good, it seems like a fair price for a model like this, just based on the quality of the parts and the size of the finished product. I can tell that it would not be a problem to take two different kits, or even two kits that are the same, and use their parts combined to make your own Cobi creations, so the product is very versatile. The age range seems good to me, as long as adults are involved when children younger than 10 are building the kit. It is the perfect way for kids to spend their time.
All in all, awesome kit, can't wait to try another one.
