What is FSC®-certified wood?
The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) logo on wood or wooden products is your assurance that it is made with, or contains, wood that comes from FSC®-certified forests or from post-consumer waste. That means the wood used only comes from forests that practice responsible forest management. Responsible forest management includes protecting fragile ecosystems, respecting native cultures and economies, preventing illegal logging, restricting clear-cutting (removing all trees in a tract) and pesticide use, and monitoring the “chain of custody”—ensuring that the wood in the product you’re looking at really came from a forest that was certified. IncrediBuilds is proud to say that all of our models use FSC®-certified wood.
How can the model be built without glue?
The wood panels are designed carefully and then accurately cut with a laser! When you punch out the pieces and begin building, you will notice that the pieces easily slide or push together and lock in place. Some people choose to use glue so it remains in place permanently, but it’s not a necessary tool to complete any of the models
What is the best method for decorating my IncrediBuilds model?
A few artistic tools you can use are crayons, colored pencils, and paint! If you use paint, usually you will want to build the model before painting. If you want to use crayons or colored pencils, you’ll want to color before punching out any of the pieces. Many people like using paint to completely decorate the model. Others enjoy using crayons or colored pencils so they can shade in their model. Or you could use all three! Feel free to add glitter or feathers too! Each model is a little different, but never fear—each model comes with decorating tips and sample projects to get you started! Anything is possible, and after all: This is YOUR IncrediBuilds model.
Is there an age limit for IncrediBuilds?
While IncrediBuilds can be safely used by kids ages 8, 10, or 12 and up (check each product for the age level), each model also has a skill level listed ranging from easy to advanced. We have a wide variety of models to cater to varying interests and experience levels—even adults can join in on the fun! Please be aware that IncrediBuilds are not meant for very small children, because some models come with small pieces—but if you have a young Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fan who would love the Leonardo IncrediBuilds model (ages 12+), you can build and decorate it together!
Are you coming out with new IncrediBuilds any time soon?
Yes! We will be coming out with new IncrediBuilds every season. Some of our upcoming releases include the Batmobile, an owl, a spider, and even a minion! We will also have more of your favorite characters from your favorite movies—but those are a secret for now!
