Just as others wrote, it's quite simple and fun to build. A good way to introduce kids to model building. You won't be sorry if anything goes wrong because it's so cheap.
The box of this kit is made of very thin cardboard that does not really protect the contents. I received my kits squeezed in a one-size-smaller bubble-wrap envelope. Originally intended as a present, I had to repack it before I could give it. The solar panel is weak. It needs either full sunshine, or (being winter now here) a strong halogen desktop lamp.
It's a pity for the poor packaging, I would happily pay $1-2 more if it arrived intact.
Fun & cheap.
