Constructing a model airplane demands patience, attention to detail, and the willingness to train it not to drop tiny bombs all over the couch. Socialize your squadrons with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of hobby supplies, kits, and toys at HobbyTown USA in Monroe.
HobbyTown USA's customers lose themselves in a 48-foot-long collection of model cars, trains, and fighter jets stacked 8 feet high beside Legos, educational products, and more than 80 RC cars. A host of both glue and snap models, including classic autos from Revell ($16.95+), allows parents and children to bond while taunting tiny auto mechanics. Badger Air-Brushes ($19.99+) cloak finished pieces in convincing paint jobs. The young and curious can probe the stratosphere using the rocket, launch pad, and controller included in an Estes rocket starter kit ($34.95), or zoom in to details with educational kits, back-to-school tools, and more than 100 puzzles ($6.99+). HobbyTown USA also stocks metal detectors ($69.99+ for a children's) that customers have used to unearth bits of gold, Civil War artifacts, and wealthy moles.
