4WD Climber #diy #car

I like sets where kids, tweens and teens put everything together themselves! 

Recently Isaak got a 4WD Climber by Mefashion. 


Delima: 

I love to hang on to kits like this for Christmas, Birthdays and Easter. I don't like to give the boys toys all year round. Then they expect it. Of course he had to put it together for the review.

Postitive:

Isaak needs to work on his skills of putting kits together. Summer break is a great time to do that.


Ages:

It's for ages 6 and up. I think a 6 year old could play with it, but I don't think anyone under the age of 10 could put it together. Isaak's 12, and he needed help a lot. I do think Mica would have been able to build this easier. Mica's more like Travis - a take it apart, and put it together person. Isaak's more like me - a creative builder, but not good with step-by-step instructions.

Pieces:

This is what it looked like once all the pieces were out of the box. A few additional tools were needed, but they were standard. He also needed a battery.


Instructions:

They did have instructions in the box. Many were unclear, some Travis was like, "What do they mean?" I think the instructions could have been a lot better. Someone from China tried to translate them to English. It just didn't work out, where they are understandable.



Put it Together:

Isaak had to have help off and on. If the instructions were better, maybe he would have had an easier time.


Left Overs:

They didn't have a lot of left over trash.


End Result:

I have to admit when I get something like this to review I'm nervous it's not going to work. Then what? It worked! Yay! Isaak wishes it was faster. He thought he could put it on high gear, but there isn't anything like that. It runs as it's supposed to.




Cost:

You can get it on Amazon https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07QF2JLFK for $18.99. The same brand has an orange model marked from $28 down to $9.99, but it's not on Prime like the one I reviewed. There's a $5.99 shipping cost added to the orange model. I do feel a little jipped when I see that companies mark down the price a lot for consumers, when I spent some of my own money to buy it for reviewing. 

Do you like do it yourself kits?

It's a good choose for boys as a toy. Do you have any video while it is working?

@ReHiTu I just have the gif that shows it moving. I wasn't asked to do a video on this one.

I find instructions for just about everything these days to be hard to figure out!

I do like hands-on learning toys like this. I think for the price, this one looks like a great toy to do to keep boredom away during the summer.
