Kre-O Star Trek U.S.S Enterprise Construction Set Review

U.S.S Enterprise Construction Set Review
The Kre-O Star Trek U.S.S Enterprise Construction Set is great for collectors of Star Trek items, or for those who enjoyed (or still enjoy!) the old series and would like to build a ship for play.

It is very realistic, giving your child the opportunity to create his or her own plots and stories.

Let’s have a closer look to see all that this building set has to offer.

Key Features of the Kre-O Star Trek U.S.S. Enterprise Construction Set

  • Construction set to build your own Star Trek adventure,
  • 432 piece construction set,
  • Able to build a U.S.S. Enterprise Ship similar to the one on the series,
  • Figurines include Captain Kirk, Spock, and Dr. McCoy,
  • Firing missile,
  • Saucer with a lift top to reveal the bridge of the ship,
  • Lighttech technology (requires 3 AAA batteries),
  • 6+ years old.

Is the Kre-O Star Trek U.S.S. Enterprise Construction Set Worth Buying?

If your child is a Star Trek fan, they will definitely enjoy this construction set. It's also a great gift for adult Star Wars fans who love building or collecting models.

Once the set has been constructed, the deflector disk and engine, which are very detailed in design, glow for more detailed play resembling the original Star Trek U.S.S. Enterprise. If your child opens the ship’s engine area, he or she can fire missiles to the enemies as he or she pretends to speed through space.

Instructions are included in the building kit, making it easy to assemble. It is one of the most realistic Star Trek sets, which even adults get excited about. It takes approximately two hours to completely put the set together. There are no stickers to worry about attaching, as this set comes with pre-printed designs on the pieces to ensure perfect placement, as well as a longer lasting color.

There are two things to be aware of with the figurines. The hair pieces do not “click on” the heads of the figurines, so during play it may have a tendency to fall off. In addition, the legs of the figurines pop off easily when placed in the seats of the ship’s breeze.

Overall, the Kre-O Star Trek U.S.S. Enterprise Construction Set is a good purchase. It's a very similar price to Lego sets with the same number of pieces, and the quality is good, too.

For what you pay, you'll get hours of fun both constructing and playing with the detailed set.

Building forts large enough to allow access by parents is possible, and both boys and girls enjoy creating their own "private" play areas, so let's snap together some Crazy Forts and see exactly what is offered.
