sorry but I can't exactly tell you the difference, though I'll try to
explain through this comparison:

toy ---> DX Wing Gundam/any wind-up car with flashy extras like sirens
and light up blah-blahs
model kit ---> 1/100 HG Wing Gundam/ 1/24 Castrol Tom's Toyota Supra GT
with minute suspension, cockpit and body details (I LOVE THAT CAR!!!)

I'm not that good at expressing myself in this department so please bear
with my explanation. If any of you have a better explanation of what a
toy is versus a model kit, please post it, anyway, this is only what I
think, other people's opinions may vary. With respect to use...I don't
know...I'm basing it on the aspect of the object details and such.
