The blocks in Nanoblock sets really are tiny — itty-bitty, even. Some of the smaller pieces can be difficult to hold, let alone put together or take apart.

Sets come with instructions for building. They aren’t as detailed as Lego instructions, but they are definitely clear enough for anyone to use.
