I purchased this for my grandson, who's only 3. I did assist him when assembling. The appropriate age is stated in the listing, which is 5 and up. I guess I am a rule breaker! All figures come individually wrapped. Which my grandson loved using his own safety scissors to open each one. It was a surprise everytime! Some of the characters had additional parts which we saw as a plus. The assembly is relatively easy. However; the hands are so tiny they are easy to misplace. You can disassemble and mix things up too. Out of the 20 professions, the wizard was my favorite. My grandson loved them all. I do hope in the future they will add some girls in the profession collection. Also, I don’t see being a prisoner as a profession but then again who am I to judge. Have a blessed day!
