9 New book nook kits: extensive reviews
1. Krafty Wood Creations
This is an Etsy store that sells different laser cut book nook kits, a haunted house kit, and a few other things.
My personal favorites are the Hogwarts Express train kit and the Diagon Alley kit.
|Brand||Krafty Wood Creations|
|Scale||The assembled dimensions of the train kit:|
For the other book nook kits, you would need to
check out the descriptions first.
I believe that the scale used here is about 1:24
|Pro’s||– The store is a star-seller, which means that|
it has a history of great customer service and
– These book nook kits are quite sturdy because
they are laser cut
– Beautiful designs, in my opinion
– you can paint/decorate them in any way that you like
– free shipping costs
|Contra’s||– the train platform book nook is a bit more complicated|
– unless I’m mistaken, I don’t see any lights included
|Hours to Make||That depends on the book nook that you are working |
on, one takes longer than the other.
2. The Eternal Bookstore
I haven’t talked much about miniature kits from Cutebee yet, but I’m under the impression that they are getting better and better with their products.
The design of this book nook called Eternal Bookstore looks quite fantastic if you ask me, I love the choice of warm colors.
|Scale||I would estimate this to be on a scale of 1:24|
|Pro’s||– Great instructions with pictures|
– This one has a stunning design!
– The battery box is well hidden
– Easily build
– no need to paint anything
|Contra’s||– No glue or batteries included|
– a few parts aren’t very sturdy
– the manual is in broken English
– you need to have a good look at the pictures
before assembling to not get confusion
|Hours to Make||About 5-6 hours|
(you can compare prices with)
3. Sunshine Town
This one from Robotime is a design that I personally like a bit less, but that’s a matter of personal taste 😉
I’m sure that the materials used are sturdy though, as always with the miniature kits from Robotime
|Pro’s||– Well illustrated with lots of details|
– Very good instructions ( I always tend to find
the manuals better than the ones from Cutebee)
– sturdy parts
– easy assembling
|Contra’s||– The wiring is weird|
– lots of pieces don’t fit together nicely
– lots of painting for this one
|Hours to Make||5 to 6 hours|
( you can compare prices)
4. Calvin and Hobbes
This book nook was inspired by the Calvin & Hobbes comic strip.
It features the scene where Calvin and Hobbes cross a log as they explore the woods near Calvin’s home.
You can place this book nook between the comic books on a shelf, but the outside is also decorated with imagery from the comic strip. So you don’t need to necessarily place it between books.
This book nook kit is unpainted, so you need to do that yourself.
|Scale||about 1:24 (not sure)|
– Width: 5 7/16 inches
– Height: 8 11/16 inches
– Depth: 5 1/4 inches
|Pro’s||– Very Original and unique design, you won’t|
find a Calvin and Hobbes kit anywhere else
– easy-to-follow instructions
– great quality and laser cut
|Contra’s||– a little bit more on the expensive side |
|Hours to Make||This is not mentioned|
5. Sakura Densya
This one I noticed this one a while ago and it is one of the new arrivals from Robotime that is on my to-do list. I think it’s a lovely and very creative design!
Although I am a little bit scared of all the flowers haha!
|Brand||Robotime aka Rolife|
|Pro’s||– easy to assemble|
– very detailed
– great quality product
– the lights are easy to fix in this one
– lovely design
|Contra’s||– Lots of painting to do (can be good for you)|
– the translation of the manual into English
could be better
– sometimes pieces are not fitting well
|Hours to Make||Unpainted for about 6 hours, painting it as well|
takes about 18 hours.
6. A Japanese store
This Japanese book nook kit seems to be initially from a store named Buladle, but I haven’t seen or heard about this brand before.
I think it must be rather new, correct me if I’m wrong.
Although it looks cute, it doesn’t have many reviews yet, so this one might get expanded in time.
7.16 x 9.64 x 3.15 inches
|Pro’s||– Instructions are easy to follow|
– great quality and colors
– very sturdy
– fantastic lights working with a sensor
– the pieces fit together perfectly
|Contra’s||– Glue is not always included|
|Hours to Make||2 to 3 hours only|
7. Little Mermaid
If you want something special and unique, this little mermaid book nook must be on your list;-)
Just let the pictures speak for themselves!
– Width: 4 3/4 inches
– Height: 9 1/4 inches
– Depth: 6 5/8 inches
|Pro’s||– Very unique book nook kit!|
– well designed
– clear directions
– great customer service
– well packaged so that nothing would break
|Contra’s||– I don’t see any shipping or returning services.|
|Hours to Make||Unclear|
8. Butterfly of Unknown Lands.
This book nook kit has plenty of butterflies for you to enjoy, and it is “light” (not literally) and would make a great decoration piece on your bookshelf.
Its style is Chinese.
10.8 x 4.5 x 6.8 inches
|Pro’s||– Good quality|
– Cute design
– lots of details
|Contra’s||– This Cutebee kit seems to have some|
issues with missing parts
– instructions aren’t too clear, not for beginners
|Hours to Make||about 6 hours|
9. Pirate Ship Sea Hunter
A book nook kit that isn’t seen much on Facebook groups or apparently not sold a lot, so it is a bit harder to review.
Have you seen this pirate ship?
– Width: 5.3 inches
– Height: 9.6 inches
– Depth: 7 inches
|Pro’s||– This kit looks like a fun design for a childrens’|
room, for example
– Sturdy materials
– top shop for gifts, gets mostly 5-star reviews
|Contra’s||– This store doesn’t accept returns and exchanges|
– not enough reviews yet to get a good opinion on it
|Hours to Make||Unavailable|
