I bought this for my 6 year old daughter for Christmas. She likes crafts and she isn't really old enough for me to teach her crochet or knitting, but this seemed like something similar that she could do. Her grandmother helped her work on it for a little while on Christmas day, then it disappeared into her room never to be seen again. She was able to do it, but apparently it wasn't very entertaining. Oh well.
I gave it as many stars as I did because the loom and the yarn were good quality (for a toy) and the package it comes in can be used as a carrying case (so the peices stay together and don't get scattered to the four winds like most of her toys).
