Wood WorX Product Line
Colorific has released several wooden building kits in the Wood WorX product line. Four of our favorites are:
Note: The finished jewelry box is more than likely too small to be used as a girl’s jewelry box. It is much more suited to be used as a toy than as jewelry storage.
Wood WorX building kits are manufactured by Colorific, a family-owned toy and educational resource company.
They are distributed in the United States by Patch Products.
General Contents of Wood WorX Building Kits
- double-ended paint brush
- quick-drying glue
Wood WorX building kits are convenient. Each kit comes with all items that are needed to build the model. However, the glue is definitely the weakest link. Parents would be advised to provide additional glue in case the included glue is dried up or runs out before the model is completed.
Colorific recommends the kits for children 8 years old and up. However, based on parent reviews, it is more likely that children need to be at least 10 years old before being able to effectively build the kits on their own. As always concerning children, you and your child’s mileage may vary. Age recommendations are always more suggestions than facts.
The wood is about what you should expect for a kit that is around $20. It is not high-quality, but good enough to get the job done. That is, it is sturdy and able to be repeatedly played with once the initial building is completed. However, it is not indestructible and potentially not able to withstand heavy, rough play. So, keep out of the hands of smaller children unless you don’t mind breaking the glue out again.
Colorific (the product manufacturer) produced a video to highlight their jet fighter set. We have found that the overall quality and presentation is consistent across sets, so this video should be indicative of the wood pieces and paint you will receive in any Wood WorX set.
