Each Build Your Own kit comes with everything you need inside the box and is made from sustainable cardboard and minimal plastics. Choose between the Paper Plane Launcher or Telescope and discover more about the world around you.

Challenge yourself to send your planes flying up to 10m with the Paper Plane Launcher or explore the natural world and starry night skies with the fabulous Telescope. Whatever you choose, Build Your Own has the ideal gift for you to enjoy hours of fun with your Dad.

 Build Your Own Paper Plane Launcher – RRP £16.99 – A perfect eco-friendly Father’s Day gift that will inspire active and competitive Dads to send their planes flying further than anyone else in the family. The Build Your Own Paper Plane Launcher is perfect for Dads who love to spend quality time with their kids. Building and constructing the launcher and planes before the battle begins is all part of the adventure! The 47-piece kit contains everything you need to slot together and build this impressive Paper Plane Launcher. Simply press out the parts of heavy-duty cardboard, follow the instructions to attach the elastic bands for the twin propulsion system, and you are ready to go!

Dads will love the challenge of trying to land their planes on the 4 different scoring targets, each one makes game play more sophisticated. Using the Build Your Own Paper Plane Launcher, the planes can reach up to an incredible 10 metres! Once they’ve tested the basics, it’s possible to push the boundaries; experimenting with wing adjustments or combining the integrated power scale and the plane’s flight dynamics to produce a different flight path outcome. Dads and their kids can take playtime to a new level creating straight or looped flight paths, testing accuracy skills using the scoring targets, and designing their own obstacle courses – the possibilities for fun are endless!

Build Your Own Telescope – RRP £19.99 – Dads will love exploring the fantastic world around us day and night with the Build Your Own Telescope. Made from sustainable cardboard with minimal plastics, this fully functioning telescope includes a focus tube which extends up to 72cm. For impressive results, the telescope comes with a specialist glass optic lens which provides 16 x magnification so Dads and their kids can enjoy incredible sights in detail.

With 29 press-out parts, the telescope can be easily constructed with Dads and kids working alongside each other, using slot-together techniques to create a fun, tactile and robust toy – there’s no glue, no mess, no fuss. It’s a fun way to spend time together, getting outside during the day to explore garden wildlife and develop their interest in nature, birds and plants. Once darkness falls, the fantastic extending focus lens and 16x magnification will enable Dads and their kids to explore the craters on the moon. Discovering the magical constellations is a fabulous way to expand the world around you and share a passion for science, astronomy and the world.
