As Easter approaches, it can be a mad dash (or hop) to get baskets ready for the kids. Toymaker Revell models has the perfect gift for young car lovers. The company’s Junior Kit line ensures that playing and learning are not mutually exclusive. Kids get to polish their mechanical skills and have a blast doing so!

The product line includes a sleek racecar, cool convertible, officious police car, rugged off-roader, and a shiny firetruck. Kids as young as 4 years old can assemble these models themselves thanks to parts that easily screw on with the use of tools provided. After building, you can zoom the cars all over town!

I received one to check out…a really cool rugged off-roader which is a hit with my young nephew this Easter! Yes, I gave it to him early so we could try it out! I like that it is easy to put together and has 25 parts which I think sounds like the right amount for a 5-year-old

These easy to build vehicles typically include 21-41 pieces along with enhanced features such as decal stickers and are available from $17.99 to $29.99 at Hobby Lobby and are also available on Amazon.

 

The next one is something needed for after all the Easter candy!
