If you have ever had one of those embarrassing moments where
a child has asked you how your car works and you have to admit
you haven't got a clue then IQ Builders could be the perfect
solution for inquisitive minds.
company's latest model, the all vehicle multi set, provides
children with a real practical learning experience, as they
handle batteries and motors and learn for themselves how energy
changes with the help of gears and wheels.
The multi set can be made into more than 15 different motorised
projects including cars, aeroplanes, motorbikes and tricycles.
By following the instructions provided and viewing the workings
of the vehicle through clear capsules, children discover and
learn about electric circuits, gears, speed and torque, motion
energy, friction and traction, chain drives, switch boxes,
wheels and axles.
took this over to my nephew's house and he loved it. I had
a play with it before and found the instructions a little
on the difficult side (badly designed like flat pack furniture
instructions). However my nephew got stuck straight in and
within 15 minutes had managed to construct his first vehicle.
Half an hour later he was taking it apart and building another.
By the afternoon (he hadn't got bored with it yet) he was
being more adventurous and making his own creations.
this really does help children learn about how motors work
it is infinitely better than Lego or any other building blocks
an age where children are constantly bombarded by violent
video console games, IQ Builders provides a sensible and useful
solution to what to buy for that nephew/niece that has everything.
batteries are included, which makes a refreshing change.
