Are they playing or are they learning? YES! Revell’s new Junior Kit construction sets for boys and girls 5 and older uniquely blend build-your-own vehicles that promote STEAM/STEM learning with like-the-real-thing designs that fuel creative play. The kits let kids assemble a variety of cars and trucks with a patented easy-screw system – take their finished masterpieces on imaginative adventures complete with moving parts and assorted accessories – then disassemble and rebuild them as many times as they wish for hours of educational fun.
Winner of the prestigious Best New Pre-School Toy award at the 2016 International Toy Fair in Nuremberg for their originality and play value, the Revell Junior Kit collection currently includes a race car, roadster convertible, police car, off-road vehicle, and fire truck. With the line’s first-of-its-kind feature set, kids can:
• Build – Each kit includes 21 to 41 large pieces that screw together with a unique screwdriver featuring an ergonomic handle designed to fit a child’s hands and dexterity level. A gentle twist of the screwdriver is all it takes to engage the patented connection system– no force required. It’s great for developing fine motor abilities and three-dimensional thinking, learning how to use hand tools, and fostering manipulative play as well as creative play skills.
• Learn – Kids not only learn to follow directions – using easy-to-understand, full-color visual instructions that turn the screwdriver into a friendly smiley-faced character – but also get a fun introduction to creative STEAM learning as they play the role of junior engineers. Self-adhesive decal stickers also let them add racing stripes, license plates and other ‘art.’
• Play – Each assembled vehicle is not only sturdy enough for a little rough play but also realistic enough to keep kids engaged. Doors, hoods and/or trunks open. Winches, traffic safety cones, fire extinguishers, removable ladders and other accessories add to the fun. Kids let their imaginations carry them away as they pretend they’re race car drivers, police officers, firefighters and more.
• Do it again – Once is never enough! The torque of the screwdriver is addicting. So is the opportunity to break each vehicle down to its components and then put them back together again. Studies show that kids prefer to build a toy rather than opening one that’s already assembled, and these new kits let them do it over and over again. Bonus: the child gains an increased sense of accomplishment with each build.
