Rome wasn’t built in a day, but a replica model will be! Arm yourself with scissors and glue to recreate Viking settlements, Roman villas and medieval villages packed with accurate historical detail – why not start with a 14th century castle or a Greek temple?
Offers children aged four to eight a fun and interactive history lesson on the grand architecture and lifestyle of the ancient Romans. Rome wasn't built in a day, they say but, fortunately, this villa can be easily built in under an hour with adult assistance (a little or a lot, depending on the age of your young builder/s).The model proved engaging and challenging for its target audience, and we were able to bring this little piece of ancient Rome to 3D life with a minimum of fuss. And we thought the finished product was not bad at all for novice villa builder.
