In celebration of May the Fourth, I purchased my son his first AT-AT. I did a lot of research and found Revell made some affordable Star Wars Kits.  At first I was discouraged by the age recommendation.  I decided to purchase it anyways with the intent of helping my son build the kits.  I am so glad I purchased the Kit. It was very easy to build and the instructions and quality of the product was great.  I plan on buying more kits to build with together with my son.
