Getting Into A Hobby

Are you looking for a new hobby or to rekindle one you had as a kid? We would love to help you with that!  When starting a new hobby think about how much patience you have? What is your budget? How much room do you have to work? What interests you?

When we talk to a customer that is starting a hobby, we like to ask what interests them. Are they into cars, military, rockets, trains, etc? A snap together kit is great for a young person that has never built a model before. A train starter kit includes all the basics for a new Model Railroader, young or just young at heart. A Scene-o-rama kit is great for school projects or making a first diorama. Rocketry is great for kids and adults to do together and it secretly teaches science, engineering and math.

If you are someone with focus, we may suggest something different then someone who likes to see immediate results. Such as a Diecast model kit which is great for one that is seeking something fast and easy, although someone who wants more can strip off the paint and repaint and decal it and customize the engine, under carriage and wheels.
There truly are so many choices both for indoor and outdoor hobbies with ideas for individual or family enjoyment.  Here at Chinook & Hobby West we have a passion for hobbies and helping match a hobby to the current and future hobbyist.  Have fun!

We would love to know what your favourite hobby is and how you started into it. Please email us or comment on this blog!
