I bought this as a teaching aid, for lessons about the human skeleton, joints, etc, and with the 50/50 bones/circulatory system, perhaps some circulation lessons too.

The skeleton... Isn't bad. It was very simple and easy to put together, a relief as that had unnerved me. The stand isn't bad, though the hook that holds it up could perhaps have been smaller to prevent him from falling off whenever you move it. On the plus side, this leaves him easy to detatch and look at.

I was a bit gutted to see that the 'teach the kids about joints' idea has been scuffed. the shoulders go around (like windmills) but don't go up and down (like flapping), wrist to fingertips don't move at all, the spine is solid, pelvis allows legs to move only as much as the shoulders (windmills, not flapping), ankle rotates 360degrees and feet don't move at all.

I'm going to look elsewhere for more skeletons for my joints lessons. I reckon this skeleton could still be useful, probably with the younger children who've never seen a skeleton before and who'd get a lot out of seeing bone shapes, etc. For 9.99 I probably shouldn't have expected all that I had!
