Carina recently gave me a couple of Tinysaurs (available at: These are like the familiar wooden kits that you assemble by slotting together the pre-cut pieces. However these are really small and a tiny drop of glue is recommended to ensure that the model remains in one piece after assembly.

Below is a time lapse video (around 5 minutes) of the T-Rex assembly. This took me 1 hour and 22 minutes to build (shorter build time estimates are however provided on the website):

A few pictures of the other models:

These models are really fun to build but you do need a bit of patience and if possible small fingers.
