Our 6 year old Grandson absolutely loves all LEGO building sets, but in particular Bionicles. As an observer, these hold up much better than the building sets with tiny figures and pieces. They do fall apart when in battle, but he enjoys them enough to put them back together again each time. And all LEGO sets have educational value if the child follows the directions and puts them together.
I cannot, in good spirits or conscience recommend this set. Skip it, you'll be better off without him. If you absolutely must have an Agori villager, pick Metus. At least he looks sort of neat. But for six dollars, and thirteen pieces? Your money is best spent elsewhere.
I would say buy this set if you like black, glow in the dark weapons, a coolish mask, you want a counterpart for a black canister set or if you missed out on the Av-Matoran and Atakus catches your eye.
