Each page show you either the robot or alien and tell you a little bit about him. What his strengths are, what he likes to eat, his special power etc. All you do is carefully push out the paper model, some are trickier then other, especially the ones with some bits. There is a code to show you whether to fold the part inwards or outwards. After you have folded each line then it’s onto sticking the model together. The book says to use good quality PVA glue, but we found the a bit messy and had to wait a while for each part to dry, so we use good old Pritt stick glue. We found using this glue was a lot easier.

You start by finding the number 1 and gluing that to the other number 1. Then on to number 2, gluing that to number 2 and so on. I did find it easier to stick some tabs all at the same time, if they were really close to each other, or all folded in the same way. I also found one or two mistakes along the way too. one model had a number completely missing and four of another number, but it was obvious that these were not meant to all stick together. So just check what you are sticking before you actually stick it in case there is a printing error.

Once the aliens and robots have been made they looks so good, really cool.

And at the back of the books are 36 playing card to pop out and play with along with your aliens or robot models.

I really loved these books and they are great fun. They are recommended for children aged 8 years or over. My youngest two loved playing with these, but I had to make the models as they were too fiddly for my 5 and 6-year-old. My 11-year-old could make these easily by himself. But they loved playing the card game and having the models alongside to battle each other.

The books are priced at £8.99 each
