The pre-coloured pieces simply push together to build an impressive model which can then be decorated with the included self-adhesive stickers.
No paint or glue is needed to make these fantastic models look like the real thing, and once completed there’s no evidence of any of the brick fittings showing.
When built, they are tough enough to be used as toys, or smart enough to use as display models. Included with each model are a full set of easy-to-follow colour instructions, free-rolling wheels for cars and tanks, and display stands for all the aircraft.

What our experts think
This Quickbuild Raptor kit encourages children to build independently and is great for developing their dexterity and problem-solving skills.
The children liked the way the bricks connected together and needed little adult help, although at some points a few of the parts were a little stiff to attach. The children were impressed that at the end of the building, it looked like a ‘real model’ and there was a sense of pride and achievement – even finding a shelf to display it on!
The finished model can also be played with after construction which is great for developing creativity and language skills such as storytelling.
