Revell Level 1 Build & Play 2015 Ford Mustang GT Review
The significance of traditional toys and role play in early years development has long been recognised. To broaden the appeal of the hobby in an increasingly electronic world, Revell is introducing a new concept in model building for children aged 6 and above, Build & Play.
My 10 year old son had a go at building the Revell Level 1 Build & Play 2015 Ford Mustang GT recently and this is how he got on.
The car was rated age 6+ so as my son is 10 he found it fairly easy to follow the instructions and assemble. The instructions were very clear and colourful so I left him to his own devices to construct. It took him approximately 10 minutes to do, but he enjoyed the whole building process (as boys do) and was pleased with the end result. I asked him if he had enjoyed building the car and he replied yes he had and would like to have a go at another more “tricky” one.
Once built, Billy enjoyed playing with the car very much and although not as robust as other cars he has it felt that it would fair pretty well with some rather enthusiastic imaginative play.
To summarize, the car was a good size for smaller hands to hold and although some of the smaller pieces that needed to go on the car were fiddley, he found them pretty straightforward to handle and place in the correct position using the picture instructions that were in colour. The only downside was that there were no stickers to place on the car. Some jazzy flashes down the side of the doors or across the bonnet would have definitely been a big plus where Billy was concerned. Once built the car felt fairly sturdy and passed the test when it came to being whizzed across the floor.
