Review: IncrediBuilds: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: Swooping Evil - Jody Revenson

Kids can build their own customizable model with this thrilling hardcover book and 3D wood model set from IncrediBuilds.

This Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them–themed wood model set brings the world of the upcoming film to life. Filled with incredible illustrations and unit photography, the booklet provides fascinating behind-the-scenes facts about the film and the creatures from the Warner Bros. archive and includes a do-it-yourself 3D wood model of the Swooping Evil, one of the many magical creatures seen in the film.

Review:
This is one of my favourite Incredibuilds models so far, it was fun to make and took a little longer than the other ones I've done (Niffler, Dobby, Buckbeak etc) because it had more pieces. More than ever it's really important to follow the instructions carefully when building this one and it's so much easier to keep track of the pieces if you only remove them from the board as you need them.

You can choose to paint your model if you like, the booklet it comes with even includes some colouring suggestions, but even unpainted these are nice little models. The book has a few interesting facts about the Fantastic Beasts movie and some of the different beasts but it's only short so you're really buying this for the model not for a book to read.

These books make a fab gift for any Harry Potter fan, they're fun to make and they look great as bookshelf decorations.
