Make sure to have a small Phillips head screwdriver for assembly. There are 5 small screws in total that we used (there was a 6th but didn't need to use it). Also, the wheels are a little hard to put on and may benefit from some cement to keep them on.
The kit comes with a plastic 'body' as well if you're not interested in using an aluminum can. I didn't know that when I ordered, it was a nice add-in I thought.
