Do-It-Yourself Splinter Kit

A 9-year-old boy received this as a Christmas present. It seems like a gift that a boy might enjoy assembling. However, when you open it up you find 4 wooden boards with punch out pieces:



Take a closer look:



You will see that every single wooden piece is split. If you ask me, this kit should come with a pair of tweezers and some hydrogen peroxide.

No kidding! I know few adults who have that kind of patience, never mind a 9-year-old!

What is that? Some kind of Chinese dragon? Might be better suited for the decor at my local takeout. Did it come with any fortune cookies?
