Great variety and assortment to use with little boys. The word puzzle pieces do look a little flat. The large piece groupings that show shadows between the pieces are not grouped in the kit like that. You get individual pairs of the same color that you would have to separate and then group so you could put shadows on each piece, but the ones with the words are already grouped together and don't have individual shadows so they look a little one-dimensional to me. The rick rack elements are two individual files, not together, which is nice for making your own grouping.
