FAQs About IncrediBuilds

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!

IncrediBuilds Review Round-Up

Since IncrediBuilds has launched, we have gotten a lot of feedback about  our IncrediBuilds models! From online articles to YouTube vloggers, we have heard what everyone has to say. To hear about personal experiences with IncrediBuilds, please check out the reviews below.


Dino Nuggets TV is a big fan of the game Destiny and was “particularly excited to geek out and build this model.” His pro tips include taking a picture of the piece placement diagram so you don’t have to keep flipping back and forth between piece diagram and the model you are building. And if you don’t build models regularly, the Sparrow can be a bit tedious and it is more of an intermediate skill level. Check out the full video here: “The Dig | Destiny Wood Sparrow Model.” The Destiny Wood Sparrow model arrives in bookstores this fall!

TTPM Toy Reviews recommends being careful when you punch out the pieces because they can snap easily when too much force is applied. Their favorite part? The 32-page book all about the TIE Fighter — it’s great for Star Wars fans. Watch the entire short video here: “Star Wars TIE Fighter Deluxe Model and Book Set from Incredibuilds.”

Cultura & Próxima Leitura features a detailed review for the Harry Potter IncrediBuilds–and it’s in Spanish! Check out this really great video here: “Incredibuilds Harry Potter: Livros com modelo de madeira para montar | Cultura e Próxima Leitura.”

Articles & Bloggers

GeekDad wrote a blog about building the Shark IncrediBuilds model. He recalls that “the actual putting together of the model doesn’t take long. The instructions are easy to follow and I only had a few mistakes I had to undo. The wooden pieces came out easily and without fear of a splinter ruining my fun.” And to top it off; the shark kit comes with a baby shark! His son “picked up the remaining pieces and built the baby shark. It was nice to see him interested without us pointing it out to him. It didn’t take him long at all to put the baby together and he was happy with the end result.” Check out his full blog post and a short demonstration video here: “IncrediBuilds 3D Wooden Puzzle Kit Review.”

Sweep Tight wrote a blog post covering the R2D2, TIE Fighter, Dobby, Golden Snitch, and Leonardo models! To sum it up, “IncrediBuilds are an excellent way to get the whole family together. They are made from high quality, sustainable materials and can be colored to your liking.” We like getting crafty, too! Read the entire post on their site: “Harry Potter, TMNT, and Star Wars Model Kits – IncrediBuilds.”

Everyday Adventures with Kids had her two kids work on the shark model and the Dory model. Her son took the great white shark kit and built it in about two hours. “He really enjoyed building the shark and baby shark. He was really proud of himself for being able to build them without any adult help.” The Finding Dory IncrediBuild kit is recommended for ages 12+ but her nine-year-old daughter built the Dory model with little help. “This was a really fun activity and my daughter enjoyed building Dory and painting Dory.”

Her favorite part as a parent? “The IncrediBuilds kits are a great way to encourage hands on learning for children.” Read her entire review here: “Incredi-Build Building Kits For Kids Review.”


“The IncrediBuilds kits are a great way to encourage hands on learning for children”

The IE Mommy used the IncrediBuilds kits during the summer when it was way too hot for her kids to play outside. Both her daughter and her son created IncrediBuilds models with assistance from their mom. “The finished product is really cute and Paige was proud to have something she built herself. Once completed you can paint or color it. In retrospect it’s probably easier to color before assembling if you go that route but luckily Paige is all about the paint!” Read more from the IE Mommy and hear her thoughts: “How to Keep the Kids Happy Indoors when it’s Scorching Outside! #Incredibuilds.”

Our Whimsical Days appreciates how easy IncrediBuilds models are for her and her kids to do together. Her daughter Kay made a dinosaur and a shark mom and baby together. “Before we started on the sharks, I asked her if she wanted to paint them first. ‘No, because then I’ll have to wait until they’re dry to put it together.’” Good point! Her full review is on her blog: “IncrediBuilds Wood Models – Minus The Glue.”

Mommy Makes Time also makes a good point – some summer days you have to unexpectedly spend inside! And if that is the case, what will the kids do while they have to be inside? On her blog post “IncrediBuilds- Unique 3D Models Review,” she recall their experience together building and coloring the Leonardo and Dory kits. “We had a blast working on Leonardo and while my children are much younger, they did a great job supervising my assembly. Younger children will require adult help but this is perfect for children ages eight and up!”

This family loves Disneyland, hence the name of their blog “Home is Where the Mouse Is.” They love spending time together, so the IncrediBuilds models were a great option for them to try! “Family Model Building Fun With IncrediBuilds” details their experience with the TIE Fighter and Dory models. He discovered an interesting point for parents who choose models for their kids. “When it was all said and done, the interests of the kids were the deciding factor.  Bella chose the ‘Star Wars’ TIE Fighter (12+) and Jackson chose Dory from ‘Finding Dory’ (12+). The Great White Sharks (age 8+) might have been more appropriate for Jackson given that he’s only 5.  It is also two separate models.  I could have done the adult, and he could have done the baby.”

Printables 4 Mom was looking for something different to entertain her kids over the summer, and she was happy to try a few IncrediBuilds models with her kids! She has three sons and each of them wanted to build their own model, which included the shark model, the Dobby model, and the TIE Fighter model. She notes that “while these models can be decorated and customized, we kinda like the natural wood look. However, I wouldn’t be surprised if the boys decide to decorate them sometime in the near future.” Read her full review and recap of their experience “Incredibuilds and a Tie Fighter Printable!

If you are curious about the IncrediBuilds models, don’t hesitate check out IncrediBuilds for yourself! With so many types of models, there are many options for you to love.
