Fun, but pricey..........
Date:April 11, 2011
We are using these figures with Sonlight Core 1 this year. The kids really enjoy putting them together and displaying them on the wall! The only drawbacks are: you can't photocopy them and they are expensive for what they are. You'll need to buy one book per student to adhere to copyright laws, and $20 a pop is rather pricey to me for what are essentially "paper dolls".
Also, I have been looking forward to the American History figures expected to come out, and am disappointed to learn there will be only 10 figures in that set for $15 :( Half as many figures for only $5 less. Even less of a value, in my opinion.
I haven't decided yet whether I'll buy the other figures in the future. My kids enjoy them, but it would sure help if the price were closer to $10, OR, if we would be allowed to photocopy them for younger siblings.
