Comments about National Geographic Laser Pegs: Oceans:
Purchased for great-nephew because he asked for Lego light up blocks. This was cheaper and looked interesting because of the variety of projects. Dismayed to find only one set of instructions included; had to go to internet for the rest (I copied them and included with gift). Not sure if age was appropriate; he's 5, but had some difficulty putting some parts together.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
