Build & Play ‘Ford Mustang GT’ is an entry level toy for ages 6+ or the ‘Level 1’ skill range according to Revell, the manufacturer. ‘Ford Mustang’ is one of several Level 1 model car kits designed as an easy introduction for young children into the world of modelling. The idea here is that having mastered this introductory level – easily and by themselves – the children will develop confidence and interest in modelling and as they get older progress onto the more advanced skill levels with more complex tasks (Easykits for ages 8+ and Model Kits for ages 10+).
Our son is nine. He likes cars but has never assembled a model car before, so the car parts were of no particular meaning for him. He is generally good at assembling things though, both made from scratch and various build-and-play
toys. The packaged toy looked very appealing and Daniel got really exited about assembling the car. It took him about 10 minutes to assemble it without help. His comment: ‘It’s a great car! It was easy to build and fun to play with‘.
The car looks really nice – we liked the size too! – and fun to play with. All in all, great model car, nice looking, easy to assemble, pleasure to handle, good fun in imaginative play and surprisingly durable for a model.
