Each WoodHeroes® kit indicates the age at which a child can assemble the model without the help of an adult, using the supplied building instructions alone.

Yes, replacement parts are available for all products made by WoodHeroes. Please contact us via office@woodheroes.at.

Yes, all puzzles have solutions, but they are not enclosed. We want to offer the puzzle fun to all the many other customers as well. A printed solution would quickly appear on the net and spoil the puzzle fun.

WoodHeroes® instructions are made by us in step-by-step presentation, which is easy to understand generally.

When we create WoodHeroes® instructions and products, they are sampled by our “test children”, and finally the product and the instructions are improved. This process also results in the age information for “play off” and “build possible”. Of course, there are also many children who love to build, belying our age information with their talents. We are always happy about such cases.
