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.

Consensus Reviews

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.

Product Video

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.
