Revell Junior Kit Off-Road Vehicle Review & Giveaway

Building your very own true-to-the-original model car is made possible by toy makers like Revell, which has been a familiar and endearing name to many model-building hobbyists. The company now offers a Junior Kit line designed specifically for young car lovers aged 5 and up. Kids get to sharpen their mechanical skills while they are immersed in the fun of building scale versions of vehicles they see in real life.

My 5 year old was very excited to start his first adventure into the fascinating wonderland of car modelling. The Off-Road Vehicle Junior Kit that Revell sent us for review includes 25 rugged parts, 18 connecting pieces, an ergonomic kid-friendly screwdriver, a color-coded manual, and a bunch of stickers that can be used to customize the model.

The step-by-step instructions are super easy to follow, primarily consisting of fun, colorful pictures with just a couple simple words like "click" and "OK". My son had no problem at all building the car independently by reading and following the instructions all by himself. He absolutely loved the process and the sense of achievement it gave him. He also loved zooming the car around along with other models in his collection. His older brother then joined him in disassembling and rebuilding the model over and over again. Each time they were able to discover something new about the parts. They had tremendous fun experimenting with various ways to customize their creation.

I'm impressed with the realistic look of the vehicle and the highly detailed design of the interior. The model is sturdy too, just what you would expect from an off-road vehicle in the real world. What the kids may not have realized is that they were in fact learning while playing. The model-building experience encourages manipulative STEAM play, motivates kids to become problem solvers, and helps them develop motor skills, eye-hand coordination, critical thinking, and important cognitive skills.

Besides the off-road vehicle, Revell's Junior Kit line also includes a sleek racecar, cool convertible, officious police car, and a shiny firetruck. They are available for purchase at Hobby Lobby and Amazon, regularly priced between $17.99 and $29.99. They make memorable but inexpensive gifts for the little ones!
