We love getting crafting, so we were delighted to get our hands on these cool Jakks Pacific Real Construction sets, The Real Construction Set Starter Set is £9.99 and is perfect for beginners, the Real Construction Deluxe Workshop Set os £24.99 and has a bigger variety of tools and materials, we opted to use the deluxe set in this review as we wanted to build something big.
The Real Construction Deluxe Set comes with over 125 pieces and a cool set of tools,screws,bolts all that you could possibly need to get crafting and building. Inside the box, you get a step by step guide to help you build specific items, but we semi opted to follow the treasure chest option but added our own twist.
The Real Construction wood is made from a foam-like material, and the tools are made of a strong durable plastic, which means that your children can explore, screw and saw safely. We were really impressed how easy the set was to use, we could saw and bang nails into the wood material to create our design, it's such a cool way for older children to craft, although some children may need help if they are following the instructions to build one of the more intricate items.
Also in this Octobers edition of Beano, you can find a step by step Real Construction guide to building a Speedboat, there is also a chance to enter a competition to win your very own Real Construction Set. For more information check out realconstructiontoys.com.
