Tuatara 3D Cardboard Model Kit

$19.00 NZD

The Dodoland Tuatara 3D Cardboard Model Kit is part of a range of collectible models of New Zealand creatures to assemble yourself. It's made from biodegradable materials including high quality cardboard, eco-friendly ink and non-toxic glue.


Tuatara are rare, medium-sized reptiles found only in New Zealand. They are the last survivors of an order of reptiles that thrived in the age of the dinosaurs. Tuatara are the only surviving members of the order Sphenodontia, which was well represented by many species during the age of the dinosaurs, some 200 million years ago. All species except the tuatara declined and eventually became extinct about 60 million years ago.


  • Pack includes cardboard pieces, non-toxic glue, eyes and instructions for assembly
  • Cardboard pieces are individually numbered and come on flat cards
  • The Dodoland range also includes a fantail, tūī and kiwi. Collect them all!
  • Designed in Whangarei, New Zealand
