I have always been a fan of Revell® models. At sixteen I started building them with a neighbor, for his train set. As a young adult, I spent many winter hours painting and putting together model cars. Revell has always made models for different age brackets, but their new line is certainly more kid friendly.
Introducing Revell® Junior Kit
Children as young as four or five years old can now delight in putting together their very own Revell® model. There are five vehicles your little one can choose from. They can pick either the racing car, roadster, fire truck, police car, and off-road vehicle.
All of the vehicles have realistic features, which is expected of Revell® models. They’re also rugged which is great for younger kids, and the doors and such move too! These five models are easily assembled, and can even be disassembled, so they can enjoy the construction part, more than once.
Great for Fine Motor Skills
I think what originally caught my eye about these sets is the fact that they are a fun way for your child to work on their fine motor skills. Your son or daughter will be expanding these skills, but will be having so much fun, they won’t realize they’re working. You see, your child will need to use a screwdriver to assemble these models. Don’t worry, it’s included. Revell’s innovative, patent pending, screw mechanism enables the vehicles to be assembled with ease, without needing any force. The sturdy components are simply inserted into each other and then tightened with large-sized screws.
Toy Award Winner 2016
The Revell® Junior Model kits won the prestigious Toy Award 2016 in the preschool category. The toys won based on the way they are constructed, and because they hold up to even robust child’s play. The model kits even support the concept of STEAM (Science and Technology interpreted through Engineering, Arts and Mathematical concepts.)
So what did we think of Revell Junior?
Revell® sent us their firetruck model kit. As soon as it came Liam was ready to get started. As a matter of fact, he got a bit angry with me when I made him wait so I could get picks. He’s ten, but to be honest, this set was perfect for him. He gets easily frustrated with smaller parts and his lack of fine motor abilities doesn’t help. He found the model easy to assemble, and had a great time doing so. He says, “I GIVE IT TWO ‘FUMBS’ UP MAMA!”
