This review is from: Build-it Space Explorer (Toy)
Bought as part of my sons Xmas this is a good kit. It comes with the wooden rocket parts, glue to stick them together, paint, stickers to decorate it, a paint pallete, brushes, a splash mat and instructions. My son who is 5 could manage to stick it together with minimal supervision and you have the option to paint it in the style of the Saturn V rocket as on the box, or do your own design as you receive a selection of paint colours. The only complaint I would have is that the paint is quite thin so you need quite a few coats for coverage.
I really liked the fact that this toy could be built by my son, then painted and when finished was sturdy enough to be played with. A lot of entertainment time for the money spent. Too often you buy craft kits from which the finished product falls to bits quite quickly. Not in this case.
The box also has preprinted solar systems shapes which can be cut out and made into a mobile if desired.
Would make an excellent birthday gift.
