When you joined this Young Model Builders Club back in the 1960s, with each kit, your child would get a booklet outlining the history and development of the original car or object upon which the model was based.

Young Model Builders Club – From 1967

What a great way to encourage your child’s creative talents! And what a wonderful source of pride and delight for your child to fashion, with his own hands, beautiful and accurate replicas of famous aircraft and spacecraft… steamships and submarines… historic sailing vessels… high-powered racing cars… and so much more!

Which is exactly what your child will be doing — when you enroll him in Parents Magazine’s Young Model Builders Club.

A New Model Builders Kit Each Month

Besides the pleasure and inspiration, think of the educational benefits as your child becomes familiar with a new and different object of present-day or historical importance… through each month’s package of precision-built parts, ready to assemble into a handsome, durable model that will long occupy a place of honor in his own room — or in the family living room or den… and in your youngster’s heart.

A Fascinating Background Booklet With Each Month’s Model Kit

With each new model your child assembles, his deftness and skill will increase. And so will his knowledge — for with each month’s model kit he will receive a booklet outlining the history and development of the original of the model to be constructed.

Imagine the rich fund of knowledge your child will develop — as he builds models and learns interesting and important facts about a fantastic modern-day spacecraft, or some historic sailing vessel, or a famous racing car or early model automobile!

Think of the hours of instructive and constructive fun for your youngster! And think how his life will be enriched as his collection of models grows and he points with ever-increasing pride to the products of his handiwork.

Then, finally, consider what enormous dollars-and-cents value you are getting in being billed the member’s price of only $1.98 (plus postage and handling) for each month’s complete Model Builders package.
