Like most computer games, it has some problem solving and creativity, but inferior to putting them in the shop with a hammer and nails for an afternoon.
Hammer and nails are fun for little boys but get real old real fast. Today's play prepares for tomorrow's world and hammer and nails don't teach a whole lot aside from how to be in a dead end job. You might let them play a little more on the computer side.
