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.


Assemble ten models demonstrating different ways in which the motors can be used including a bulldozer, car, three-wheeler, crane, antique car, plow, folding car, formula one racer, three-blade dozer, and robotic arm. After you have built the models in the instructions, you can design your own remote control creations!


The kit comes with three motors, remote control unit, battery holder, and building blocks. Collaborate with your fellow junior engineers to build fantastic and functional remote-control creations.


The 48-page color instruction book included in this kit gives illustrated step-by-step instructions for the models to help children learn through play and develop their mechanical understanding, creative thinking skills, and hand-eye coordination.


The 182 building pieces included in this set are compatible with those in our Air + Water Power, Wind Power 2.0, and Solar Power kits.


WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD—small parts not for children under 3 years.

National Geographic is home to a thoughtful selection of educational kids toys, games, activity kits, books, and more that engage young minds and foster a lifetime of discovery through fun and hands-on learning. The leading concept in 21st-century education is STEM—science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. It’s a cross-disciplinary approach to learning that entrepreneurs and educators believe is key to a healthy innovation economy. At National Geographic we believe that art and design also play a vital role in exploration, so we count ourselves among those who take a broader view: from STEM to STEAM.


We’re proud to have been supporters of STEAM learning since long before the acronym was invented. Anyone who has watched a child open a present only to set the gift aside and play with the box knows that kids have an innate curiosity and desire to explore and understand their world. National Geographic explorers never lose that curiosity, and it has lead to some of the most remarkable discoveries in the last 125 years.

  • Creativity Encouraged
  • Engaged Our 9 Year Old
  • Fun to make

Cons

    Best Uses

      Comments about Remote-control Machines Kit:

      Our 9 year old was immediately engaged and could work out the directions himself. He felt terrific about being able to build things that looked complex but were actually easy if the directions were followed. He had been to a robot making camp and this was an ideal follow on for him. There was enough of a challenge that he could feel proud of his accomplishments.

          Great Birthday Present

                Comments about Remote-control Machines Kit:

                I knew my 12 year old grand daughter would love this gift. She slaps together remote control Lego kits like there is nothing to it but to do it. I wanted to challenge her so she could learn and grow. She is busy with school and competition cheerleading at present but found time to throw together a 4-wheel car. She started by trying to build the crane but needed to consult the instruction manual and didn't have time. She said she wants to figure out how to make vehicles turn left and right. In no time at all, I expect her to have space age construction equipment to service her Star Wars fleet.

                When one of our grandson's opened this gift, the granddaughter's left their dolls and other grandkids put down their Christmas presents and devoted around two hours to watching and building remote control vehicles. Grandkids from pre-med to age 7 loved it.

                Comments about Remote-control Machines Kit:

                Bought this as a gift for my grandson (9 years old). He has always been interesting in building things & has quite the imagination. In less than a week he has already built every item on the box and has now moved on to building his own creations. He has barely put it down. Quality sturdy pieces and remote works great. I hope to find more advanced kits to increase his imagination as well as the complexity.

                      Easy to follow instructions. Gave great explanation of scientific concepts, but also easy to skip ahead and start using the set. So much fun we had to build two of the models within the first hour.
