These new craft kits are sure to light up your life. Creatto is a simple yet versatile building system that consists of sturdy interlocking tiles made of durable plastic pieces with four point interlocking stars which lock it all together. The entire kit includes 66 plastic tiles and 40 interlocking stars, plus a LED light string that’s battery operated by two AA batteries.
The kit comes with an instruction manual, so you can build one of four ideas like a cat, teddy bear, squirrel and mouse house, while the interchangeable pieces encourage endless imagination.
My daughter chose to build the squirrel. The manual states 20-30 minutes build time per project. However, it took about an hour to assemble. My daughter had given up after the first five minutes as it was too difficult for her to assemble. Admittedly I was frustrated as the manual didn’t make much sense on how the pieces where suppose to go together. Plus the interlocking plastic pieces where hard to get together making it quiet cumbersome.
I made a promise to my daughter to finish this Creatto Squirrel Puzzle, and I wasn’t giving up. The box is label ages eight and up, but it is clearly for an older demographic.
I turned to Google to search on how-to build this squirrel puzzle when l came across a YouTube video showing the steps one by one. After an hour in a half, we finally completed the masterpiece and all that was left was to insert the batteries.
Overall, my daughter is very pleased with her squirrel, which she uses as a night light. I love the concept of creating a 4D object that can be made in to any design you want. It certainly offers creativity and a learning process all in one.
