Definitely a winner for young kids! I did this for 2 yr. old--Abra"HAM"! The pom pom in the hat was a little tricky but overall not difficult for someone of intermediate level or above.

I made this twice.... it's amazing!!!
The difficult part was to level the pig's legs.... you have to be careful when you cut the pillars, they have to be exactly the same!
Try it!! People would love it!
