So, we’ve reached that time of year when we take time out to make Dad feel special and let him know how much he’s loved. What do you think he might be expecting? A card? Some slippers? Maybe a cup with ‘World’s Best Dad’ emblazoned on the side.

However, wouldn’t you rather see his eyes light up on the big day, the way they used to at Christmas when he was a boy? Well, with the hobby gifts for him that we offer at Mechanical Models, that’s precisely what you get, with options that are a real break from the norm.

Satisfying Models That Live & Breathe

From our wide selection of model building kits for adults, you’ll find a whole cornucopia of choices that will raise a smile on the big day. From automobiles to time pieces, there’s something that will suit Dad’s interests.

Let’s take a look at a few of the hobby gifts for Dad that are available…

Chrome Rider From Time For Machine

The first example we look at is the Chrome Rider from Time for Machine, that’s based on motorbikes from the mid 20th century. It’s a beautiful creation that - like all of our mechanical model kits - has an internal engine that he’ll get to put together himself.

Power up the mechanism like this and watch it go! Offering a challenging, yet rewarding experience - it beats getting humorous socks, hands down!

Balloon From MadClockmaker

Next, if you think that Dad would prefer something a little more sedate, we have Balloon from MadClockmaker that certainly qualifies. As you can see by following the link, it’s a truly stunning kit that will give him hours of fun putting it together and years of pleasure appreciating it afterwards.

When you see hobby gifts for him like this, it’s evident that this is not your run-of-the-mill model-making experience. Rather, it’s an evolution of the hobby in every respect.

Marble Parkour by Rokr

Last up, we have Marble Parkour by Rokr that’s entirely made from a single sheet of sustainably sourced plywood. This is one of the more quirky hobby gifts for Dad available in our range, but if he was ever a fan of the game Mousetrap, he’ll love it!

Offering incredible fun during and after construction, it is a gift that will live long in the memory - not something you can say for that bottle of aftershave you got him last year!

Gift Enjoyment & Mental Stimulation This Father’s Day

So, rather than getting the same old clichéd Father’s Day gift that he’s likely expecting this year, why not think outside the box and give him some excitement in a box instead? To find out more about our full range of hobby gifts for him, visit us today at
