We usually get emails from time to time, asking the team how can I get my child into model collecting? I think we found the perfect solution. Here’s a cool way to forge the initial scale model collector in your family… We’ve all been there, most of us can remember our first-ever model, and that usually leaned towards budget-focused brands like Bburago or Maisto. Schuco has been a player in scale model collecting for many decades now, even more so than the brands above. Something that recently crossed our path is a new series of collectibles targeted for a younger audience (12 months +) appropriately named “My 1st Schuco”.
This new collection of plastic material would favour 1:24-like scale if we had to place a number on it, but we don’t think Schuco is overly concerned for scale accuracy here. Highly durable with rolling wheels, we can guarantee many hours of fun, only imagination limiting! We won’t be held responsible if this addiction develops into something more substantial, LOL. The two examples here feature the Roadster Green-Gary and Studio Racer “Silver-Max” #5, Silver/Black. Less than 20 Euros apiece, they won’t break the bank either.
As for the models, each is executed in plastic with exaggerated driver details, basically, the drivers’ heads sit atop the chassis, ideal for young minds alike! Detailing such as headlights, taillights, number decals and related are painted in place and protected for long-term use. These aren’t your typical shelf pieces either, they are meant to be played with, but some, like me, might also choose and appreciate these as perfect paperweights in the office. Enjoy the pics!
