Most of us are aware of how hard it is to get kids off of their electronics. For older modelers among us model building was fun and a great way to spend a rainy afternoon. But the younger generation today not only has a myriad of devices but each one has tons of games and activities. So it's very hard to pry them out of their fingers.
Revell thinks they have come up with a winning formula however. In an article in the Chicago Tribune, Ken Cutler of Revell says that they are producing a new line, SnapTite Build & Play, that offers simpler modeling. The kits will have fewer than 20 parts that can be put together in a half-hour without using glue or paint.
With so many things vying for young people's attention, many kids don't want to spend a couple of hours or more before seeing the finished product. Revell hopes that these new kits won't seem to be such a daunting task.
Hopefully this will be something that kids can latch on to and get hooked on model building. It's a wonderful hobby.
