Firstly, I need to point how how amazed I was to learn the first time round after reviewing my very first item from this company that, like all their kits, this kit is also environmentally friendly as it is made using 100% sustainable cardboard and paper, making it eco-friendly too. I have reviewed a number of their products and this kit is new to the collection and is equally as good as the other kits I have reviewed.
Being an absolute fan of any toy that encompasses sensory and interactive play, I find it is extremely important for any child’s development.
Cognitive learning is also very important when it comes to interactive play and there is so much that can be learnt through this, including counting, imagination, observation, hand and eye co-ordination and so much more. Just let your child’s imagination run wild and you will be surprised with your help and interaction, just how much they can really learn from building and playing with this kit.
This company really thought of it all, from environment to STEM play (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). FANTASTIC!
The day it arrived, I could not wait to start putting it together with my grandson.
The previous items I have reviewed are for slightly older children, this kit is particularly great for any little junior who would like to build their own little dragon. It is so cute and adorable and what makes it even more special, is the fact that the head has a moving action.
The design of the dragon is an amazingly bold purple with big and adorable eyes with a variant of other bold colours (see colours listed below).
With all the accessories (listed below), this kit really does encourage imaginative and creative play. Ooh, keep an eye out for the secret magic heart as you are building the dragon, once you find it, make a wish. My grandson only went and wished for a real dragon, bless him LOL.
Open up the packaging and inside is a delightful picture ready for it to be coloured in.
As with all the other kits I have reviewed, this kit has an easy assemble slot system, this means that no glue is required. This is brilliant as there is no mess from glue or its residue. The instructions provided are easy to follow, just gently push out the parts that are already pre-cut, start building and once complete, watch your little one start playing.
I have to say that each time I have tried out and reviewed a kit, another comes along and the imagination and detail to these kits are phenomenal and with Christmas not long round the corner, this would make a great gift, even for birthdays or just because you want to treat your little ones.
You can see a video of the collection which is great as it will show you what you get in the kit and gives you an idea of what you are buying. Just click on this link https://youtu.be/_gT-_dr_kUs

SKILL LEVEL AND TIME TO BUILD
The website says skill level is 1 out of 5 stars and takes 20 minutes to build but with some learning difficulties due to ADHD, it took us a bit longer but that was absolutely fine as it gave us some really quality time together.
