Who would love this: LaQ fans, especially those who love venomously dangerous animals.
Confession time: I am afraid of anything wiggly, twisty, crawly, scary, spooky, and yes, you get the picture! LaQ Animal World Venom from LaQ (Australia) is something that I always wanted to review, but my faint little heart was screaming “No”. I’m so glad that I took that BIG leap of courage 🤣 to test out this kit, and the result is venomously, dangerously AWESOME!
Why I love ❤️ this toy:
(1) LaQ Building Kit With 6 Models of Deadly Animals
You probably have heard me said this before: I think LaQ is one of the best construction toys when it comes to creating spectacular life-like creatures - its cursive joints, modular flat pieces, and clever connection techniques set itself apart from other building toys in market. The models are gorgeous and hard to take your eyes off. This Venom set has 330 LaQ pieces in 5 colours, and an instruction booklet to make 6 of the deadly creatures. As usual, LaQ cleverly captures the distinguished features and the venomous characters of these beautiful (and hair-raising) creature. The Red Tail (Death Stalker) Scorpion is the largest model in the set. It’s visually-stunning with its red and orange legs and pincers, and that segmented tail that curved towards its back showcases its formidable power as a fatal stinger. The Redback Spider is quietly menacing and I’m captivated by the dash of blood red spot on its upper abdomen. You can also build a King Cobra, Poison Dart Frog (with striking, “warning” colours), Rearing King Cobra, and a deadly Blue Ringed Octopus.
(2) Building Toy With Intermediate Difficulty Level For 5 Year-Old ++
Venom set is a building kit with intermediate difficulty level. The models don’t take too long to build; The scorpion, cobra and spider are probably slightly more challenging for LaQ beginners, but the rest of the models should be easily manageable by young kids. There is no Hamacron part in this set (no wheels and shafts); there are some minor moveable parts on the models, but nothing too overly complicated.
(3) Building Kit Compatible With Other LaQ Sets
We LOVE that LaQ kits are compatible with each other. Most LaQ pieces can be replaced / substituted using pieces from other LaQ sets, so we can always “supplement” the pieces in the set or even spice up the colour combinations of the models!
