Review of the Melissa and Doug Airplane - Paint - Glue - Stickers

Review of Melissa & Doug’s Airplane

Sid loves “tchu tchu trains”. He was so happy to play with this train by Melissa & Doug and was super proud to say he made it himself.

Now, Sid and I were excited and ready to build the airplane.

All the instructions are on the back of the box, which is also useful to keep all the pieces together.

Everything you’ll need is in the box! Paint – One Paintbrush – Glue – Stickers

If like us you like to paint, you will want to use your own paintbrush because the one provided has a few plastic hair that has a flat tip, which can make if difficult to unify the paint on the wood airplane.

(I particularly like the paintbrushes from Ikea, which are easy for Children to use and pretty inexpensive)

The best way to have the kids doing as much as possible is to start with baby steps. After reviewing the instructions, I pass each piece that needs to be painted. We use the same colors as on the picture because this is what makes Sid happy. The supervisor will need to trace lines on the airplane to delimitate the colors if the exact airplane on the picture is reproduced.

When the airplane is dried, we just need to glue the two wings, which should be executed with the supervisor’s help.

After letting the airplane dry for at least 20 min, the best part finally arrives for Sid.

Sticker time!

For our airplane, we chose to follow the airplane illustrated on the box. It is nice that Melissa & Doug adds extra pairs of stickers, which allows kids to do their own design and develop their creativity!
