When my nephews visited us recently, I seized the opportunity to keep the kids still and get the boys working for me to create our AT-AT, win, win! Little Man was so excited to see the book itself and both children helped out where they could and then watched their cousins, entranced as the model took shape.

The mini build took around twenty minutes and the instructions within the book were easy to follow. My nephews worked together to get this done, with fun squabbling and banter throughout the process!

Wherever possible, Little Man got involved and enjoyed holding onto and showing me the parts of the AT-AT as it was being created.

It was lovely to see them all joining in together and my two were very patient as their cousins put it all together.

Whilst my nephews were putting the final touches on the AT-AT, Little Man discovered the activity section in the book and that was him very happy for some time. He adores spot the difference and really concentrates on them, as you can no doubt tell!

Then we were done. How great does this look? It stands 14cm high and is the perfect size for little hands to play with or to be popped on Daddy’s desk.

Of course once built, the AT-AT ended up making its own way in the world. I found it in the garden!

The books themselves are very sturdy and compact hardbacks, with a glossy finish. The mini build pops out easily and the pieces are all firm, well-scored where they need to be and easy to slot together. The instructions are towards the back of the activity booklet and easy enough to follow. The booklet is fun to complete and both of the kids have enjoyed working their way through it. The AT-AT is still being played with, and given that its at the mercy of an active three year old, the fact that it is still in tact is impressive!

These Star Wars mini-build books are great for all ages, as my three year old was delighted to receive this, building it became a family affair, and they make lovely gifts for Star Wars-loving adults.

Here they both are available to buy:
