What It Is
With Incredibuilds kits, kids use wood pieces to construct 3-D models of some of their favorite entertainment characters, including Leonardo and his katana swords from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Leonardo 3D Wood Model comes with almost 100 laser-cut wood pieces that kids pop out and slide together. No glue required! All of the pieces are numbered so that you know in what order to assemble them. The illustrated instructions will also help you out with that. You can even paint the wood pieces to look just like the animated version of Leo or create an all-new look for the Turtle character, but you should do that before you assemble the model. Once complete, the sturdy six-inch model stands up on its own.
Is It Fun?
This is a cool construction set for older Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fans who also enjoy model-building sets. Of course, a younger Turtles fan could also build this with help from an adult. The pieces are easy to put together, and kids will like that they can paint and decorate this Leonardo model however they want for display. Do you want to stick with Leo's tried-and-true blue bandana look? How about adding some battle scarring? No matter how kids choose to do it, this will engage them in some creative play. The finished model (without paint) looks very cool and would make a nice addition to a Turtles fan's collection.
Who It’s For
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Leonardo 3D Wood Model is for ages 12 and up. It will mostly appeal to older TMNT fans who also like model-building, but we think that younger fans could also complete this with help from an adult. The finished model looks really cool, whether or not you paint it, and would make a nice addition to a fan's Turtles collection.
What To Be Aware Of
It took us 30 minutes to build our Leonardo model, and the instructions were very easy to follow. It is recommended that you read the assembly tips before you begin. And adult supervision is also recommended.
If you want to paint the model, you'll need to paint the pieces before you assemble them. Paint and paintbrushes are not included.
Additional Incredibuilds sets include a Finding Dory Deluxe Book and Model Set where you build a 3-D model of Dory. It is sold separately.
