This item came with several missing pieces and no screws. Given that this was “a gift from Santa” it is going to be tricky returning the item or getting replacement parts.

amazing and such a great learning tool. My 8 year old had a blast putting it together and still plays with it daily. He is so proud of what he did when his friends come over he shows them how great it is..see moreof the reviewer's review

Tries to put it together and it didn't spin, the wires fell of so I didn't have any working lights. Don't buy this item if you want a model jet engine that actually works.
