Got this for a Father's Day gift since my dad likes making models, etc. He got a kick out of it! And yes, the cannon works! He's been using it to shoot the pingpong balls around the house for the cats to chase. Excellent decision, happy memories!
It took me 2 hours to fully assemble this cannon, certain parts of the assembly were very fiddly and I had a couple of the smaller pieces break as I was putting them in, but luckily there were spares provided for these pieces.
It would make an ideal gift for older children who enjoy crafting and making things, and a good alternative to jigsaw puzzles for those who enjoy hands on puzzles and the like.
I think the price is fair and it’s a nice little gift that can help kill a few hours, I doubt it could be done any faster than the time I took to put it together.
The instructions are really good, giving step by step instructions for assembly that are easy to follow, the hardest bit is right at the end when the elastic bands need to be put in for the firing mechanism to work.
I gave it a 4, it not so much as easy as it was a bit challenging. At times I thought I needed 3 hands. It was most definitely fun to build.
This 3D wooden jigsaw puzzle is brilliant, it has everything you need in the box to build it, along with an instruction booklet. The puzzle has 158 pieces plus a few spares in case of breakage and once built is 12.6" x 5" x 8" and it says will take around 2 to 3 hours to build, although we've found that it's taking longer
I had a read through the instructions and it's much too fiddly and time consuming for me, so my son has taken over building it, as he's fitting it in around work, it's taking longer than expected,
For anyone who loves jigsaw puzzles this is a must buy, it's fun to do and can even be played with (carefully) afterwards
I love kits like this, and this one was great to build. It took me quite a few hours to build, and I spaced it out over a few days. In some places it is so fiddly and I got frustrated but sorted it out in the end. I didn’t need to use any glue it all slowed together fine. The tiny screws went in good too. I was a bit worried as some of my little wooden pegs splintered off or sliced in half due to the wood, but there were spares of the pegs at the end anyway.
The instruction manual was easy to follow and everything is clearly labelled. Great fun to make, and even more great fun firing it with the ping pong balls included.
