This lamp is awesome. Now I know it's only made of cardboard but it was a great invention. Not only is it a learning experience and a great thing to do with the kids, but it is actually functional. We collect old lanterns and thought this was a great addition to our collection. I only gave it 4 stars because of the durability. It cannot get wet and not very sturdy for any outdoor use. But it is great for a collection or decor. I would recommend a kit just like this but made of plastic or tin.
