    A Child's Dream

    I am but a teen and am as many people would say, a Titanic Freak. I know practically everything there is to know about the Titanic, ranging from how long it was/is to where she was built and how long it took. I absolutely LOVE this model and hope for it to be something I treasure forever. Even after my dog dented the bow making the model look as it does today at about 2 1/2 miles beneath the surface I still enjoy playing with it thoroughly. I plan on buying a second one and puting the one I have at the moment into a tank as a model of how the ship looks today. I will paint it and place it under water in sand and dirt. Then, I shall be able to play with my submarines as if they are finding the ship for the first time! I love this model so so so much and want it to be something that people of all ages enjoy, even people over ninety- two!!! The book is full of information that I love to hear, more of the numbers than the design plans and people on board which I see more often than not. I wish to say thank you to Klutz for making this product.

    Great model!!

    This Model was really easy to build and it is very fun! When it sinks it cracks in half just like the real thing! The book is also very informative. I learned stuff about the Titanic that even I didn't know!

    great education tool

    I love how you could even teach a 3 yr old how the ship sank. I got it today and could not stop playing with it when its not being used i will use it on display to let people look at. one of the greatest things i ever got.

    The Only Thing Missing is The Band!

    The biggest hit of Christmas! My six-year old has not put the model down since Christmas morning and we have read through the book twice.I should have bought two.

    The best kid gift ever! (great for adult kids too).

    I bought one for my nephew who is facinated with the Tiatnic story. He brought it into school for show & tell the kids we're OOOhing and Ahhing as well as the adults! This toy actually simulates how the Titanic actually broke in half by actually taking on water through the 'iceberg' damage it has. It's historically accurate in design, not difficult to but together and an amazing learning toy. 5 stars from me!
