Item details

The Hive in Worcester, England is a given name for Worcestershire Library, Archive and Archaeology Service building. Opened just 5 years ago, because of its architectural qualities including the distinctive enormous golden roof, the Hive is a widely recognized landmark of Worcester itself.

We squeezed the building several times so you can place it on your table. Now it fits within a tiny pocket size package you can take with you when traveling or just feeling flat. Here come the details:

The Hive Worcester. Library, Archive and Archaeology Service. Cut-Out Paper Model
ISBN: 9780993132322

Size of the package: 130 x 107 x 5 mm / 5.1 x 4.2 x 0.2 in
Dimensions of the model: 120 x 95 x 50 mm / 4.7 x 3.7 x 1.9 in
Inside: 20 blueprint cards

*******************************************
IT'S A KIDS' ZONE!
*******************************************

Foxetroo models are designed so that kids need to make simple three-dimensional solids (such as cubes or cylinders) first and then connect them into a final model. Together with the graphics this will then resemble a recognizable architectural building. It's made easy for kids to assemble while developing their cognitive and motoric skills.

*******************************************
IT STARTS WITH A PACKAGE
*******************************************

All the parts needed to make the particular building are housed inside a convenient pocket size kit. Assembling instructions and diagrams printed on the inside of the cover show the most important steps in building the model.

*******************************************
INSIDE THE KIT
*******************************************

Foxetroo kits contain two sets of cards – assemble both models yourself or invite someone to help you. We call them cards due to their appealing rounded corners which resemble playing cards.

*******************************************
THE CUT-OUT CARDS
*******************************************

Each set contains the blueprint cards. The size of the cards is perfect for cutting out the parts of the model. The cards are printed on carefully chosen paper selected to make it simple to cut and fold, so a six year old can achieve it while still ensuring the assembled models look sturdy.

The blueprint cards have two sides that are aligned very precisely:

1 - on the front side you will find graphics of all the exterior details - like doors, windows, balconies, roofs etc.
2 - on the reverse sides of the cards the cutting and folding patterns are printed.

As the graphics and the cutting pattern are printed on two different sides, it makes it easy to focus on cutting the parts out smoothly and precisely, as well as following the guidelines to assemble the model correctly. The main bonus with our design is the lack of written guidelines on display on your finished masterpiece, as they are on the reverse of the cards.

Numbers on both sides of the blueprint cards ease the assembling of the model - just follow the sequence.

*******************************************
GAME OF COLOURS
*******************************************

Cartoon-like freehand graphics and a playful palette of vibrant colours make the buildings appear alive. Black borders define the edges, sometimes they make an illusory appearance of the shapes. Grey's role is simple yet important - it shows you where the glue should be applied.

*******************************************
THE FINE PRINT IS FINE, TOO
*******************************************

No fancy tools are needed - just scissors, a pen, a ruler and a glue stick (we recommend a solvent-free green SCOTCH stick).

All the parts of the kit, including the package, are made from materials that are safe for children, non-toxic, environment friendly and conform to EN71, ASTM F963 and CPSIA 2008 safety requirements.

We recommend the kits for anyone aged 6 to 99. Please be aware that the kit is not suitable for children under 6 years! The assistance of an adult may be advisable for 6-10 year olds.

Yes, we make custom models - either you want a classic "Cut & Glue!" model kit or an innovative pop-up card we can do it! We have previously made custom models for promotional industry, museums, private foundations, schools and collectors. Our production possibilities allow to make a custom model for you in any quantity starting from just one to thousands of copies. We use digital, offset and screen printing, die-cut and kiss-cut scoring and cutting, cold and hot gluing, embossing, foil fusing and stamping and using the best designer papers and cardboards along with a long list of accessories to create a very special model just for you, your company or private event!

We do wholesale as well! If you are interested to carry our kits in your shop please convo us with your details and requests. Getting in touch and talking to us is rewarding!

We know that our models are much loved by teachers and students for creative classroom paper craft activities. If you are a teacher or any other person responsible for purchasing supplies for your school, college or any other educational establishment and select at least 10 single kits you may claim a 25% DISCOUNT at the checkout by filling the special instructions field and we will refund you the difference. If you are a keen architecture and paper craft enthusiast, a history buff or if you are sourcing for an activity to spend a quality time with your family and friends and want to buy at least 10 kits you can get a 20% discount by using a coupon code 10FOR20 at the checkout.

We ship kits in beautiful kraft envelopes with our company name stamped and a minimum necessary product information attached. We can add a gift message on your behalf. Just write in the gift message text when placing your order.

Paper is sturdy enough but definitely not thick, it's easy to score and cut with a hobby knife (X-Acto or similar). It's not so easy to use scissors as some details are quite small and delicate so we recommend cutting with a knife. We recommend using a white glue (PVA, Elmer's or similar). You can use paper strips or ear picks for gluing tools.

We recommend our kits for anyone from 13 years, but some 10 year olds have done well, too. There is nothing wrong with starting earlier just patience and motor skills are usually better with larger kids. Probably these pre-cut models are better for kids and generally beginners in paper model building since they contain less details and no cutting is needed - just folding and gluing: Mayan Pyramid Eiffel Tower Golden Gate Bridge Empire State Building
