I decided to paint up the pair and to add a third kid whilst I was about it!
|L-R: Colony 87, converted Midlam Miniatures, Colony 87.
All three are dinky. The guy in the middle is the tallest at around 22mm to the top of his hat. Speaking of the one in the middle, he's converted from a Midlam Miniatures villager (Child with Hobby Horse), originally a Bob Olley sculpt for Metal Magic.

The Midlam kid got given a radio controller made from the ever-useful RTB01 datapad accessory, with an aerial and controller added from lengths of a paperclip. I repositioned the left hand to hold it (later adding straps around his neck).
I added another RTB01 piece as a backpack, then added a few flat circles of greenstuff as badges. The remote controlled robot is of course an Epic one with a pin as the aerial.
Perhaps I'll have to think of a kid-friendly game to play with my actual kids using these models. It could be fun!
