This is a terrific gift for kids into building stuff. Great price, lots of interesting gears and wheel pieces, and while there are many projects to do, these are building blocks to go off and build new stuff. (The big thing at our local school is to build tops out of lego to battle, and this kit has lots of great parts: axles, wheels...)

My 9yr old son owns a few Lego sets & he is used to mashing them up to come up with his own robots, planes & cars. For this Christmas, i wanted to give him something that will build on his interest & this worked perfectly. We gifted this + the power functions motor + battery boy unit (from the local Lego store). As soon as he opened it he was able to build motorized cars and we plan to build more gadgets with it.

For the number of bricks in it, it may seems pricey... but the gears in it are rare which you can find only in the most expensive Lego Technic sets. Moreover, this set is cheaper in Amazon than it is elsewhere. With this set your kid will get his hands on experience with basic machines like the pulley, gears, fulcrum, etc. If you want to gift your kid something that is both fun & educational, you can't go wrong with it.

I saw this item in a pricey toy store. Amazon's price was 10% less and I bought 2 to get free shipping. One is going to my 7 year old grandson who is just getting into Lego. I have to sit with him to get him to persevere, but I think the book will give him some ideas. The other set is for me -- no -- I will give it to the 5 year old grandson (in another city) when he is more interested.

This is not a stand alone kit, it takes more general blocks to build cars and cranes. The 7 year old has his father's collection of about 4000 blocks (mainly gifted to our son by his grandfather. I expect the 5 year old will build up some of his own.

In summary, Lego is a great toy and books of plans and the general block sets are great gifts. I am not as eager to get into the themed sets which can be very unique to one model or kit. This little kit is good for a multitude of neat projects.
