Was thinking of getting DD the Christmas Toy Shop. She's 8. The bits don't look any smaller than other sets which are age 5-8.

I would think it's to do with the complexity of the models and their instructions.

They put age limits on toys to make you buy more. Lego is the prime example - Baby Lego until age one, then quattro until age two, then duplo, and then lego divided into all different age categories.

If you think it looks suitable, ignore the age on it, and buy it.
