I bought this for my daughter's 10th birthday, not because she knew how to paint models, but because she loves horses. I was afraid the models would be difficult to paint and result in much frustration. The opposite was true. My daughter loved working on her horses and the results were quite nice! The models are attractive, well made, and large enough to handle easily. The paint worked very well on them. We ended up with two lovely horses, painted just the way my daughter wanted them. A great idea for horse lovers! I would reserve them for older (10 or above) children, however, only because there is some fine detail on the models.
My neice couldn't wait to start painting her horse

I believe the age group that was listed for this product was fine. It was a nice gift to give for christmas and to a young horse lover , maybe you could carry more of this Breyer horse collection in the future?
My neice adores horses...anything to do with them. This product gave me a new way to help her horse collection. She likes to be creative; this way she gets a new horse and gets to make it her very own by painting it.
All this kit needs is the touch of a young artist! Two Paddock Pal unpainted model horses, paints and brushes, and a detailed ''how to'' booklet will help you paint and color these horse's to your heart's content! Photography in booklet shows coat colors, eye and hoof detail, face and leg markings, and everything a beginning artist needs to know about horses in an easy-to-follow format.
