I grew up with lego, loved building houses, and now my children also enjoy creating with lego - they have houses, police station and firestations, along with loads of vehicles. However, this kit offers so many more possibilities - this kit would be brilliant for lovers of anything egyptian or would be an ideal introduction to ancient Egypt.

This is a large kit which will keep children (and adults) occupied for hours. Upon opening the box I was confronted with 7 bags of lego, 2 instruction books and a moulded lego base.

As with all Lego kits, the lego is split into bags, which are easily identifiable within the instruction books. THe instructions are split into very simple steps, listing the individual pieces required for each step at the start of each step. The photographs of each step are large and easy to follow.

The recommended age on this piece is 8-14 years, but as with all Lego kits, I am sure there is no age limit for the enjoyment people receive from Lego. A great way to relieve stress of the day or to spend time with children.

As well as the main pyramid construction to build, there is also vehicles, characters and a giant scorpion to tackle, all with detailed, pictorial instructions.

Although the kit has a finished product in mind, there is plenty of room for development with children able to combine kits to add their own twist. There are also additional kits which can be bought to add extra models to the kit.

I received this kit as part of the Amazon Vine Program.
