Monster Hobbies Goal
Monster Hobbies is a small Mom and Pop run family store that has been operating in Alberta, Canada since 2004.
We started from humble roots in the Calgary Heritage Flea Market and soon moved into a small store in High River in 2005. In 2006 we relocated to a larger store and we also launched our web site which you are now happily viewing.
It is our goal to keep the hobby alive and teach the youth of High River and the world to build model kits and enjoy a hobby away from the usual Internet and Video Games that are predominate in our society.
We want to show the youth that they can be creative, learn new skills and be proud of their work and accomplishments. A plastic model kit, when built by a youngster, can offer the type of self esteem and self respect that is crucial to the development of that child. Besides, building a model kit is fun and exciting for people of all ages!
Monster Hobbies is a great place to socialize and make new friends through our gaming nights and Saturday lessons for building your model kit. It is also a great place to learn from the older model builders as well. For online visitors to this web site, you can see many of our You-Tube “How To Build A Model” videos through this web site.
In addition to this, Monster Hobbies holds model building contests throughout the year where you can showcase your model building skills and compete with other model builders for the top honors and prizes.
Please help Monster Hobbies continue with it’s goal of providing a safe haven for gamers and model kit builders. Let us work together to keep the hobby alive and growing!
