  1. Michelle

    Great well built kit & very easy to use. My 5 year old loved painting the butterfly & slotting all the bamboo in. He wanted to call it a different name so we used the back of the original sign

  2. Helen

    We had great fun putting this together. It is well made. Let’s hope the bugs like it too.
