We purchased four dozen of these sailboats for a VBS craft. Our intention was that the kids would put them together one day and decorate them the next, thus filling two days of VBS crafts. When our crafts director tried to assemble one for a sample she encountered several issues. First the holes were not drilled in the proper place and second glue was needed to hold the pieces together (the need for glue was not mentioned in the advertising). We ended up having various church members take them home to assemble. They reported that while some boats fit together easily others had to have holes re-drilled and plenty of glue.
Of course because we had to pre-assemble all of the boats we also had to find another craft to do on the second day.
I would not recommend these boats.
Cons: Age appropriateness, Assembly, quality
No, I would not recommend this product to a friend.

Our Youth group worked to put these boats together for our table decorations for a dinner. We glued everything together except for the sail parts and spray painted them white. I had the girls use permanent marker to decorate them including the sails. And assembled the rest. They worked pretty good, some parts were missing, but OT replaced them quickly. My recommendation is to look through your order to be sure that the kits are all there and complete. This will allow OT ample time to replace items if needed.
Pros: quality
Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

These turn out really cute. Due to limited craft time (20 min). I plan to use as a 2 day craft. Painting on day 1 and gluing together on day 2. They are quick and easy to put together with the insert pegs and a little wiggling. The only drawback was that the muslin sail tend to bleed into the fabric grain so letters tend to look a little blurry, and the cube tends to slide down the mast. I fixed this by putting a dab of glue on the mast, sliding the cube back over the glue and then putting a clothes pin below the cube to hold it in place until the glue dried.
Pros: Assembly, quality, Age appropriateness
Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

these are fun when they are finished being assembled and more for 10 and older kids. the parts need to be glued so consider drying time and the sail is wrinkled from packaging so maybe use wrinkle releaser before giving it to be decorated. otherwise we used paint and permanent markers to decorate and turned out really cute. ..... not good for floating in the water.

Bought numerous sets of these for our church's VBS this year. Saw the reviews mentioning minor issues with the product (holes needing to be drilled out, re-drilled, etc...). So, I was prepared to do some work. Worth it, I thought, to see the smiles on the kids' faces as they raced their finished boats.
The whole thing ended up being a much more involved process than I anticipated. First, tossed out a fourth of my order due to split wood, or unusuable/unrepairable pieces. Second, the kits that did assemble well (according to the directions) tipped over as soon as they were placed in the water, due to too much weight on the mast. We were able to make things work, but the bottom line is: Be prepared to put a lot of elbow grease into doing a complete OVERHAUL of the design, if you actually want a boat that's water-worthy. This is the first time I've been sorely disappointed by OT. But I won't be buying this again.
Pros: Child's Favorite
Cons: Assembly, quality, design
No, I would not recommend this product to a friend.
