What could possibly go wrong?
These miniature rooms take many hours to build and require patience and care. As with all DIY Kits, the more skill and experience you have, the better the result. If you're not careful, you could damage parts during removal, lose parts or install parts the wrong way round. Some parts are delicate and can get damaged if you apply too much pressure. Take your time and enjoy the experience.

What is the minimum recommended age to build this kit?
14 - however at this age an adult will need to step in occasionally to help out. All kids are different of course, but we're going to say that an average 16 year old could most likely build it independently. 

What is the maximum recommended age to build this kit?
If you have steady hands and patience then the only thing left to stop you is your eyesight.

How long will the battery last?
It's an LED, so expect to get several hours of use.

Are the batteries hard to find?
No - the lighting is powered using a common lithium battery (see requirements above) available from hardware stores, supermarkets and chemists.

Do any parts move?

Is the model fragile?
It's unlikely to get damaged if it topples over, but if it is dropped from a height then be prepared for disappointment.

I love these miniature rooms! Do you have any more?
Sure do - check out the full range of Robotime Miniature Rooms.
