Love It Hate It!
Review by Jorja M. on 06/04/22 review stating Love It Hate It!
I couldnt wait to get started working on this Book Shop project! But the numbering system of the pieces is very difficult to understand. There really needs to be a separate page of instructions that comes with the kit to explain and interpret the nutty instructions.

Wow! This is a serious project!! I just finished it today . Husband and I spent 4 hours intense work trying to put together the light fixture. AARRGGG!!! Decided it didn't need light . It's a Christmas gift, it turned out well but a lot of work. The instructions can be dicey at best

Loved the Finished Product
Review by Pat on 03/17/22 review stating Loved the Finished Product
I really enjoyed this kit. It looks so cute on my bookshelf. Loved being creative in the final assembly. The pieces for items such as the bookcase come in different bags so you must be careful to check and double check each piece. Sometimes it is just the thickness of an piece that separates from the wrong piece. The instructions for most items are adequate but for the lighting, it was very difficult. Stripping the insulation from the thin wire was difficult, but worth it in the end. It looks great. Will buy another soon.

This is a fascinating project to build and the perfect surrounding for the two sets of tiny animal readers that portray book club figures which are also on sale now. I plan to complete the arrangement with a plexiglass surrounding and donate it to the childrens section of the local library.,,,

Great fun!
Review by Kendra on 03/16/22 review stating Great fun!
Got this for my birthday, just finished it the other day, and I'm loving it! A few notes: the wire is super thin and fragile, so be very careful stripping the insulation. I meed up enough that I barely had enough wire. When cutting the fabric for the chair, be sure to count the right number of pieces and make sure you lay it out on the fabric before cutting, to be sure you get enough pieces. I meed up the chair badly enough that I had to use my own fabric, but I took advantage of that to add a few personal touches. Most importantly: have fun! You don't have to do it all at once. If you get frustrated, walk away and come back to it later. Took me about 18 days, anywhere from an hour to several hours each day.

Miniature book store kit
Review by JANET D. on 02/19/22 review stating Miniature book store kit
I am glad you asked. I LOVE the kit, bit it is far too difficult for me, and I am afraid it will live out its life in the box. The envelopes of parts are not well marked, and the book of directions is difficult to understand. My daughter was going to get me the Greenhouse kit for Christmas, but I told her it was probably the same way. I am very disappointed. Janet DelTurco

SO fun.
Review by Joan Z. on 02/19/22 review stating SO fun.
Im an average person and I am having a blast building this. Yes, of course its very detailed and time consuming and quite tedious at times but the final result is worth it. I do wish that the bags and parts were labeled better, but its really not that hard to figure out. The paint included in the kit is not great quality (use real paint if you can) and I found I had to buy more glue. Im not quite finished, about to tackle the lighting...but Ive really enjoyed the process so far.

DIY Miniture Bookstore Kit
Review by CATHERINE A. on 12/01/21 review stating DIY Miniture Bookstore Kit
Opening the. Box was mind blowing. I never imagined there could be that many pieces. That said the directions were very clear. The items were separate plastic bags but many pieces. Do not buy unles you intend to spend a great deal of time however it will be worth the effort.

Love doing different things with my hands. Am retired --always looking for interesting things to do in my spare time. This kit is wonderful! Smalll, busy work to while the time away -- and provides something for me to show off to friends. And Im a compulsive reader so it speaks to me in warm, friendy terms. I love it!
