Now is the chance to get your own koala before they become extinct! This wooden model kit is a fun and easy project to assemble, and it doubles up as a quirky flower pot. The supplied, removable plastic tray is the ideal home for your next succulent or cacti arrangement. It also makes the perfect storage container for all your knick knacks, trinkets, craft items and coins.
This is a great parent & child project to build together during holidays or over a wet weekend. Adults love these kits too, especially those who enjoy hands-on activities. The instructions are easy to follow and everything you need is supplied.
Build your own flower pot!
Other hobbies will seem boring after you’ve entered the world of model building. Koala is a delight to build and watching your plants grow will bring many years of enjoyment.
Fun & easy to build
Once built, you’re left with a unique flower pot to share your shelf space for many years. However we think the best part is building it. Whether you simply enjoy hands-on activities or you need a therapeutic break from life, the construction process is a happy balance between keeping you interested without the need of an engineering degree.
No additional tools required
Building your flower pot is a snap - literally. Just pop out the parts and either snap them or glue them into place. Some wood glue is supplied, so nothing further is required.
A sticker sheet featuring characters from the Flower Pot collection is included.
Collect the set
The fun of building your own flower pot doesn’t have to stop here. There are more quirky creations to add to your collection or to share with others.
What could possibly go wrong?
Building the kit is pretty straight-forward; you remove the parts and then snap or glue them into place. However all model building requires skill. If you’re not careful, you could damage the parts during removal, lose parts or install parts the wrong way round. Some parts are delicate and can get damaged if you apply too much pressure. As with any skill, the more you practice and the more experience you have, the better the result. Take your time and enjoy the journey.
What is the minimum recommend age to build Koala?
14 - but young builders might need some help.
What is the maximum recommend age to build Koala?
The kit is designed for all ages, so if you love hands-on activities then don’t let age stop you. It helps if you have steady hands and decent eyesight.
Are plants supplied?
No - our photos are for illustrative purposes only.
Do I need to paint it?
No - the parts come pre-painted as shown in the photos.
Do all the parts need to be glued?
With this kit, some parts fit snuggly together without glue, while other parts do need to be attached with glue. The instructions indicate when to use glue and a tube of wood glue is included in the kit.
Do the parts need to be sanded?
Sometimes when you remove a part, it comes off with a small burr. On those occasions give the edge a light sanding using the supplied sandpaper.
Is the finished kit fragile?
It should be okay if it topples over. However if it’s dropped from a height then I don’t like your chances. The biggest threat comes from smaller children and, ironically, cats.
