Kirby appears in the Entry Grade series, perfect for modelers of all skills and ages!

The color-coded parts of the face are reproduced with Maxim tomato and rice ball parts! Because it is a touch gate, the parts can be removed from the runners by hand! No glue or tools required. The instructions are colored for easy viewing. Since the number of parts is small, even those who are making plastic models for the first time can assemble it quickly.
Comes with a Warp Star type pedestal.

    The perfect way to introduce a young kid to plastic models. This kit is very simple, only 12 parts, and won't take an adult more than a couple minutes, but it's thoughtfully made with kids in mind and has some clever gimmicks to make it easier for kids to grasp with the sometimes difficult spacial reasoning needed for model kits. I have tried other simple model kits, like keroro or SDEX with kids under 8 but this is the first one that felt genuinely accessible (though a grown up will still need to participate).

    As you build the inner parts for the eyes and face, the back side builds up into Kirby power ups. This detail isn't visible in the final kit, but by including recognizable.icons like candy, rice balls, or the "M" icon, kids can more easily see how parts should be oriented and fit together. Pegs include little icons as well to help show how parts should be oriented or lined up. These are thoughtful details that add intrigue to the build and help kids to understand.

    The kit itself is simple but looks exactly like what you see on the box. Everything is color separated, including the eyes. There are color correcting stickers for the pink cheeks (which are red plastic) but since they're a separate part, they're pretty hard to spot if applied right (and the kit also looks okay without them).

    The connection for the feet and to the Star is not that strong -- not loose, but if you want it to with stand a six year old's clumsiness and actually function as a toy, an adult should dab a little cement on these pegs.

    Overall a great little kit to introduce a kid to the world of plastic models. It's easy to understand, only takes a few minutes of building, and the result is exactly what you see on the box. Bought it for a six year old girl and it was a big hit, she loved both the build and the resulting toy.
