Absent design templates, our testers first built a simple cube to get the hang of things. After that, the kit's capabilities quickly became clear; paving the way to decorate with GI Joes hanging from the ceiling. Our more experienced parent builders found ways to create openings and working doors; some requiring a trip to get more Velcro┬«. Yes, the youngest had lots to say about what to build — on the car ride to Home Depot and back.
