An amusing story of two inquisitive kids and build simple models of the aircraft they discover on their hilarious family vacation. Along this roundabout trip, the kids build various flying machines to help the people they encounter solve problems and complete tasks. As you follow the story, you can build models of the 10 vehicles in the story. Large, colorful plastic building pieces make it easy for small hands to put the models together. The kids start out by building a passenger jet to bring their family to a tropical island. After they arrive, they construct a helicopter to help some scientists studying sea turtles reach a remote island, and then a seaplane to bring them back. As they continue along their trip, they also build a biplane, space shuttle, prop plane, hang glider, supersonic jet, and other airplanes to help their friends out. From each humorous segment of their silly adventure, the kids learn something new and collect a funny souvenir.
