This kit was a blast to put together. Took about 30 minutes, but once complete, it rocked. It now has a nice little home on my childs night stand. The LED light changes color and is a nice subtle light. Not to bright. The light is just right! The direction where pretty good, although, I did have to undo a couple of steps when things did not line up right. All in all, loved this craft and it looks awesome when complete.
