Manufacturer: ARCKIT
Price: $59.99

Arckit Go Colours is a scale model-building kit containing approximately 175 pieces that can be used to construct architectural designs. The pieces are brightly colored; each element has its own color for a visually appealing but consistent look overall. Pieces allow for curved or flat walls and a flat or 45-degree-sloped roof (with optional dormer windows).

This is a high-quality building kit that will stand up to hard use. Though it comes with one design that illustrates the use of the kit, designs are overall open-ended. The Arckit sets are mutually compatible, so budding architects wishing to construct something even more impressive can easily expand. The bright colors and relatively easy manipulability of the pieces make this Arckit an ideal transition set for those who wish to move to more realistic model buildings than the classic LEGOs but who may not be ready for the stark look of the professional architectural models.
