1. Star Wars Millennium Falcon SnapTite model


Revell SnapTite Star Wars Millennium Falcon model kit

Want to make the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs? This is a great starter model for any Star Wars fan. It snaps together with no glue required making it a great build for younger children looking to get into models.


2. Batman 600pc 2-sided Puzzle

Batman 600-piece 2-sided puzzle


This is a wonderful 600-piece puzzle that doubles as 2 puzzles in 1, and because it’s in the shape of a bat, has the added challenge of having no edge pieces. Any Batman fan would love this puzzle and if you choose to save the puzzle with glue, you have two different pictures to choose from.

3. Laser Pegs Indy Car

Laser Pegs work just like Lego and BricTek, letting you build many different creations — only with Laser Pegs, it lights up! This brings life to the creation that you have built. The best part is that Laser Pegs’ bricks are compatible with both Lego and BricTek.

4. Stunt Derby Racers
