We all want to find something our kids will cherish as a birthday gift. Ideally, it will be something they will love and play with for years to come, and that evokes fond memories. A model-building kit could be the alternative gift for your child that you are looking for.
Why Are DIY Craft And Model Building Kits Such Great Birthday Presents?
A great birthday gift for kids is something that brings long-term satisfaction and that they will want to show off to friends. You don’t want a single-purpose toy that gets repetitive after an hour. Nor do you want something too difficult to use or too educational that they struggle to enjoy. The best craft kits and wooden puzzles blend an age-appropriate challenge with a fun toy.
When you choose wooden 3D puzzles as gifts for kids’ birthdays, you give them something they can enjoy building over time for long-term value. They build skills and a sense of accomplishment when the model is complete. From there, many of the best designs have additional interactive features. Alternatively, there are DIY craft kits for building dollhouses and similar display pieces. There is the fun of engaging in the craft and creating something beautiful for their room.
Here are some of the best beginner-friendly kits to consider for your child’s birthday.
1) ROKR Robotic Dinosaurs Walking T-Rex
This first model is a great choice for anyone looking for a more beginner-friendly robotic toy. This one doesn’t have too many complex parts, so kids can build their birthday gift themselves, and there is the same tactile wooden design as other ROKR toys. Yet, this is still a sound-activated dinosaur that can walk and roar via claps. It is great fun to build and play with. The finished model also looks nice as a display piece when not played with, unlike some over-the-top plastic toys. It captures the T-Rex perfectly, from the big fierce head to the tiny little arms.
2) Rolife DIY Miniature House Little Warm Space Series
Next, we have a series of DIY craft kits that are much cuter and more colorful. These play n the idea of miniature dollhouses by offering four very unique rooms. These “warm spaces” are designed to be as cozy as possible for their inhabitants. There is a vintage kitchen for baking bread, a toy room with a cute little polar bear, a living area with a comfy armchair and cake, and an area for potting up flowers. The level of detail is impressive, and kids are going to love adding the finished pieces to their room.
3) ROKR Starry Night Orrery Mechanical Music Box
This next option is a little more challenging with its detailed parts, but still easy enough for older kids to tackle on their own. This is a wonderful gift for kids that love engineering and the solar system. The scientific model creates a beautiful wooden orrery with bright acrylic planets. Once complete, kids can set the system in motion and listen to the tunes from the music box below. Kids will get a lot out of both the building process and the working toy, giving it great long-term value.
4) Rolife Pumpkin Carriage 3D Wooden Puzzle
Finally, we have a detailed model for kids that love their fairytales. A princess doll or figurine is a fun single-purpose birthday gift. A wooden 3D model of a princess carriage offers a brilliant building experience and a stunning model for their collection. This one takes inspiration from the pumpkin transformed for Cinderella. There is great attention to detail in the carving and printing of the pieces, from the spoked wheels to the lanterns on the back. This will be something kids can enjoy working on for a long time, and they will take great pride in the finished piece.
