All these make the games go on for long periods of time because just assembling it can take hours when done for the first time, so children do not get easily bored, and is a great way to keep them busy and out of trouble.

With so many pros, drawbacks are inevitable, and here some of the advantages can prove to be cons for different age groups. Although this is designed for kids, unless they are more than 8 years of age, they might not understand the strategies required to proceed with it. Younger ones will only enjoy assembling it, but not playing it any further since the gameplay after it gets pretty tricky for kids. Children with special needs will not be able to enjoy the true essence of the toy either.

Some children also have complaints about some of the characters, while others have said that it is pointless after building the entire thing from scratch. Kids might even lose interest instead of gaining it when the gameplay starts to get too complicated. The rules that come with it are not very elaborate either, so it leaves some kids wondering how to proceed.
