EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Incredibuilds kits let kids use wood pieces to build 3-D models of some of their favorite entertainment characters, including Dory from Finding Dory. With the Finding Dory Deluxe Book and Model Set, kids get more than 50 laser-cut wood pieces to assemble a wooden model of the Blue Tang fish “swimming” through the ocean on a display stand. The model stands about 4.5 inches tall and six inches long. Just pop out the pieces and slide them together. No glue required! All of the pieces are numbered so that you know in what order to put them together, and the illustrated instructions also makes this easy for you to figure out. 

The set also comes with a 31-page book that has design tips for painting the model, but you'll want to paint the pieces and let them dry before you put them together. Also included in the book is information about the ocean and its animals. Kids can read about real Blue Tangs, Clownfish, Sea Turtles, and more.

Is It Fun?
This is a really nice two-in-one set for Finding Dory fans who will like building and decorating one of their favorite fish characters, and then reading all about Dory and their other favorite Finding Nemo and Finding Dory characters in the book. This is a nice way to engage kids in hands-on creativity and also get them interested in reading and science. The finished model will look really nice on display and will make a wonderful addition to any fan's Finding Dory toy collection.
Who It’s For
The Finding Dory Deluxe Book and Model Set is for ages 12 and up. This will obviously appeal to fans of the movie Finding Dory who also enjoy construction toys and model-building kits. Some Finding Dory fans are slightly younger than the recommended age of 12, and they also might want to construct this set, but we think that they'd be able to do it with adult help.
What To Be Aware Of

It took us 30 minutes to build this Dory model, and the instructions were easy to follow. Make sure you read the assembly tips before beginning. Adult supervision is also recommended.

If you want to paint the model, you'll need to do so before you begin putting the pieces together. Paint and paintbrushes are not included.

Additional Incredibuilds sets, including a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Leonardo 3D Wood Model set, are also available and sold separately.
