What It Is

Maxim Enterprise's Create-A-Character is an activity kit that lets kids customize their own wooden character, perfect for pretend play. The kit comes with two different heads, legs, arms, one torso, and a backpack (or use it as a jet pack or even a robot head, you decide.) Also included is a paint brush and six-color paint palette, which includes black, red, green, blue, yellow, and white paint.

You can paint each piece of your character, wait for it to dry then connect them together to create your character. Use one head then swap it out later to create a different character all together.

Is It Fun?

Without instructions, this is a activity kit that gives kids the chance to let their imaginations truly run wild. The pieces twist into place easily and because with interchangeable features, we think there is a lot of opportunity for repeat play.

Who It’s For

Create-A-Character is for ages 5 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

We suggest prepping a workspace before you start painting.

It took us about an hour to paint and wait for our own Create-A-Character to dry. Dry times will vary.

Parents who are looking for wooden toys, or other toys made of natural materials, will appreciate this toy.
