Model building kits are a great way for kids to connect with someone they love and trust. When it's a parent, it's a really healthy way to build communication skills between the two. Life gets really hectic when you're a parent, so what better way to learn new things about your kid!

Sharing this experience with someone like a grandparent is a really nice way to bridge an age gap. It allows for the grandparent to teach their grandchild something they wouldn't normally learn and allows for bonding in a new way that isn't just helping with school work or giving gifts.

Sibling bonding

Have kiddos that fight all the time? Model kits are perfect to help build trust and communication between them. It allows them to focus on a task at hand, rather than fight over a toy. This they can do together and be proud of themselves!
