Mose’s Detective Agency REVIEW

Mose’s Detective Agency REVIEW

Mose’s Detective Agency is a DIY miniature replica of what you might expect to find in a 1920’s-era British-style detective agency’s office.

No detail was spared – an umbrella, envelopes, a typewriter, a newspaper, an investigation board, a working desk lamp, a magnifying glass that actually works, and more are all included!

The kit comes with nearly everything you need. Miss 12 did need to use her own ruler with millimeters, pliers, scissors, and she found it helpful to use clothespins as well, to hold some pieces together while the glue dried.

You’ll begin by assembling the windows, door, and steps. Then you’ll build the room and all its contents.

The instructions were easy to follow and Miss 12 found it helpful to check off each section after she completed it.

The hat was such an adorable addition to the set and real fabric was used to wrap it.

The pieces were easy to assemble and so cute!

Some assistance was needed to wire the desk lamp but it was worth it! I was amazed at how neat the room looked with the light on!

There is room for customization if desired, such as rearranging the room, adding small details to the various components, adding a hook on the wall to hang the briefcase, and hanging the pictures in different places.

We also added wire to the inside of the tie so we could hang it over the back of the chair.

Miss 12 also chose not to glue everything down as the instructions suggested. This makes it easy to rearrange the display if desired.

Look at that detail in the tiny pocket watch and umbrella. And, the desk drawer actually opens!

A few items came pre-made, such as the briefcase, the telephone, and the croissant.

Miss 12 added a tiny square of a napkin to keep the butter from the croissant off the desk. 😅

I would definitely recommend this kit! Miss 12 had a blast assembling it and Miss 10 (and Miss 7 and Miss 5) are all looking forward to trying their hands at their own kits.
