        For 8-year-old with parental help - cool

        Comments about RadioShack RC Dinosaur Kit:

        Overall, this is a great project for kids from 7 years old maybe up to 11. My son is eight, and this was great.

        It is not super-easy, and takes adult help and some time. I think, overall, it is cool, and deserves far more than one star. Once we started this, I realized yet again that inexpensive "kits" are always lacking a bit in overall quality and ease.

        The drive bars from front wheel to back wheel do get pressed in by what looks like one half of a rivet, not a 'screw,' as the directions say. These rivets are very hard to press into place. In a short time frame, the average thumb can only handle two of the six needed. Be careful.

        The instructions do not show where the wires need to run to allow pieces to fit to have clearance. Test-fit and move these a bit - the wires (4 I believe) coming out of the biggest of the three wired panels need to be all the way flat, not crossing each other, to let the nearby panel rest in place.

        The instructions are step-by-step until you put the wheels and drive-bars on; then, it just shows a whole bunch of steps in one illustration. Take it slow.

        The DIP switches to select radio channel is a cool feature - if you get two of these kits, they can be on different channels, and the kids can select the channel.

        You cannot superglue the whole thing once assembled since you will need to open it back up for a new set of batteries - you could use a few dots of model glue to hold the top or anything else in place, but with a seal that will easily break as needed later.

        Once assembled, it is easy for kids to drive with pretty good maneuverability - it turns on a dime and was mastered by my 6 year old quickly, as well as the 8 year old.

        Very Disappointed

              Comments about RadioShack RC Dinosaur Kit:

              I bought this model kit for an 8 year old as it is the recommended age. The "screws" are actually studs to connect each piece by pushing into holes. I am a technician by trade but this was very challenging. The kid, nor myself could not push these studs in the holes. We pushed and pushed only to break a part of the model off. It can be a nice model if this was improved.
