Challenging, give yourself 2 hours and modify the instructions
July 21, 2014

I'm pretty handy and have good manual dexterity but ~thick fingers and strong fingernails.

The strong fingernails help, the thick fingers not so much.

I used some electronics lead cutters (small diagonal cutters) to remove a few of the pieces from the metal plate. Some can be bent until the metal fatigues but several pieces are too flimsy to bend that way or the tabs aren't lined up to twist the part out.

To make it nice, some of the pieces need to be curved so I bent them over various tapered and round pens and chopsticks.

I used a tooth pick to poke stuff too tight for my fingers.

Some of the pieces are flimsy enough that they want to bend before the bend over tabs do, in those cases, it's better to slightly bend the tab before inserting it, that makes bending it the rest of the way easier.

The leg and head assembly are the hardest parts. For the legs I pre-bent and fit together the three pieces with the body before folding over any tabs. Once I was satisfied that everything fit I put one leg section on the body, folded over the tabs then I put the other leg and bottom section together and folded those tabs. Putting those two pieces together seemed much easier than trying to install the legs and then fit and install the bottom separately. I also bent the back piece of the bottom down to match the arc of the thorax (I think that's what it's called), that bend wasn't in the instructions but I think it's needed.

I goofed on the head assembly, I bent the neck tabs up instead of down, then I had to either put the head on upside down or fold the third tab out of the way and go with it. I folded the third tab down. It would have been nice if they had included a fourth slot to accommodate that type of error but they didn't.

After that it looks nice and if that's the type of thing you like, you will enjoy the kit.

If you are heavy handed and easily frustrated by Ikea furniture, this may not be for you.

This would be good for a child if they are very patient and not clumsy.

I gave it three and a half stars because the directions could be improved and the "moderate" assembly level seems a bit optimistic. Now that I know how it goes together, I will get more kits but these aren't for everyone.
