Let the magic begin as you soar through the skies of the wizarding world. This kit lets you build paper flyers of your favourite characters from the Harry Potter films, including Harry Potter himself, Draco Malfoy, Hedwig the Snowy Owl, the Golden Snitch, dragons, and more. With 11 beautifully illustrated magic flyers and step-by-step instructions, Harry Potter Paper Flyers is sure to be spellbinding.
While looking at the products that were available to request, I saw the Harry Potter Paper Flyers book and got excited. I am a huge Harry Potter fan and I liked the fact I could do the paper flyers with my children. I submitted my request and kept my fingers crossed. When I received the box of goodies and opened it my children wanted to instantly start constructing the Flyers. Unfortunately for my children we had an appointment to get to so they had to wait until the next day (which happened to be perfect as it was a cold day out.)
The book is very vibrant in colour which was the first thing we noticed, next we noticed the eye-catching image of the dragon. We opened the book and proceeded to read the instructions. The instructions were very easy to understand and had diagrams to show how to do each step. After the instructions there is a section called 'Flight Training' which shows how to get an optimum flight from the Flyers. Near the end of the book there is a graph to chart how some of the flight tests go.
I was expecting the book to just be about the Flyers but was pleasantly surprised to see that throughout the book there were pages that were dedicated to explaining the history of each Flyer character.
The Flyers were simple to pop out of the pages and due to the thickness of the pages thankfully there were no tears. We found that the suggestion in the book to use a table edge to fold along the lines, was very useful and very efficient. The Flyers once constructed were just the right size for my children to hold. My personal favourite was the Hedwig the Snowy Owl Flyer, my children both loved the Harry Potter on his broomstick one. After doing several flights we were finally getting the hang of how to get the best glide, this provided several hours of excitement for both me and the children.
Overall I am thoroughly impressed with this book and the quality of the Flyers. I would recommend them for around age 7 years of age, unless younger children are having help from an adult. These would be a fantastic way to spend a rainy day inside.
