Air-Stream Machines Kit
Air-Stream Machines Kit
(Got it? Rate it.)
Category: Kids/Toys and Games/All Toys

A real, working hovercraft is just one of the 10 models you can build in this kit that teaches about pressure and airflow. Learn how even though air is invisible, it still has mass and can support very heavy objects under the right circumstances. Experiment with propellers and impellers, and build a hovercraft that will glide over smooth floors or flat water.

Remote-control Machines Kit
Remote-control Machines Kit
(Based on 5 reviews)
Category: Kids/Toys and Games/All Toys

Build your own motorized vehicles and machines and control them with a wireless remote control unit. A unique six button infrared remote allows you to control three different motors simultaneously, moving each of them forward or in reverse, with easy-to-activate touch sensors. The three motors can be combined to make complex vehicles and machines in numerous configurations limited only by your imagination.

Scope Constructor Kit
Scope Constructor Kit
(Based on 1 review)
Category: Kids/Toys and Games/All Toys

This unique optical construction kit lets you build your own microscopes, telescopes, and binoculars. Young scientists will get the scoop on how microscopes and telescopes work by building their own out of simple, reconfigurable parts.

Wind Power 2.0 Kit
Wind Power 2.0 Kit
(Based on 2 reviews)
Category: Kids/Toys and Games/All Toys

Build wind-powered generators to energize your electric vehicles and charge your rechargeable batteries. The wind spins the turbine, which turns an electric generator, which in turn charges your rechargeable AA batteries (not included). You can then use those wind-charged batteries to power the model vehicles you build with our kit. The six models include a glider, sail car, jet car, tractor, racecar, and tricycle.

Air+Water Power Kit
Air+Water Power Kit
(Based on 1 review)
Category: Kids/Toys and Games/All Toys

Build your own models powered by air and water pressure to learn about the laws of physics. This unique kit allows you to build two different air-and-water-powered systems: water-jet propelled cars and hydro-pneumo powered engines (which simply means air pressure and water pressure). The hydro-pneumo system uses a self-contained air-and-water turbine system as a motor.

Gyrobot - Gyroscopic Robot Kit
Gyrobot - Gyroscopic Robot Kit
(Based on 1 review)
Category: Kids/Toys and Games/All Toys

Gyroscopes are used in countless devices, from smartphones, tablets, and video game controllers to airplanes and space telescopes. With this kit, young engineers can explore the astonishing powers of the gyroscope by building seven motorized models, including a robot that can balance on two linear wheels and move along a tightrope!

Remote-control Machines DLX Kit
Remote-control Machines DLX Kit
(Got it? Rate it.)
Category: Kids/Toys and Games/All Toys

Remote control machines that you make yourself! This deluxe machine-making kit helps young engineers build 20 different types of machines. With 155 building pieces and three independent motors, you are only limited by your imagination. Use the comprehensive instruction book to make a three-wheeled car, a drilling machine, a crane, and more. Once you master the process, start building new machines of your own design. The wireless, six-button infrared remote allows you to move the three motors simultaneously, and easy-to-activate touch sensors let you move your machines forward or in reverse. Full-time customer and tech support is on deck to help.

14-in-1 Solar Robot Kit
14-in-1 Solar Robot Kit
(Based on 1 review)
Category: Shop By/New/Kids/Toys and Games

There is more to this little robot than meets the eye! This solar-powered robot lets budding green energy pioneers and robotic engineers build a range of silly creatures and traveling vehicles. Sort all the kit parts into the labeled baggies to make each build a breeze. And then start by building the drive box, aka the robot’s “head.” Kids can build one robot and easily change to another, zipping from turtle-bots to boat-bots, slither-bots to zombie-bots. With two skill levels, builders begin with amusing creatures and then challenge themselves with more complex robotic forms.
