The first we had heard of sprukits was when we were sent a box containing a selection of kits. But I'm not surprised that we'd not heard of them before as they're very new to the toy market. But I do think they're going to be a huge hit with boys both young and old as they are able to make their very own DC Comic characters. If DC Comic characters aren't to your liking you can collect and make Pokemon, Halo and LBX (Little Battlers Experience) models too.
The boys were thrilled to see that they had been sent kits to make their own Batman and Joker models. The models are aimed at children aged 8 and over but both Nathan and James loved helping Callum and I with the models and even the big kid Matthew enjoyed helping Callum with the Halo character model.
I have to say when I first opened the boxes and saw all the little pieces stuck to plastic sheets I was very concerned that the task in hand wouldn't end well. But I was pleasantly surprised as to how easy the models were to assemble. The instructions are very well set out and very informative. I love the fact that you don't need any glue or scissors to remove the pieces from their fixings or to fix the models pieces together and that although you have to clip every single piece together once they're fixed they are very firm once complete.
There are 3 levels of models available so beginners have the chance to get their hands on an easier type of model before trying their luck with the trickier ones. As the levels increase so does the complexity of the model - there are more pieces and extra detail to the more complex models.
You can buy Sprukits from all good toy retailers online and instore with prices starting from £8.99. I think they would definitely make a great gift. Callum is really happy with his models and has plans to display them on a shelf in his new bedroom once it's been decorated.
