The IQ Science range of technology based toys from IQ Builders
children to understand how very basic electronic circuits
work, fuelling their imagination and their inquisitive nature.
Bug Builder toy is aimed at the 5+ age range. This colourful
animated bug construction set allows children to construct
a number of bugs including a preying mantis and a grasshopper.
Once constructed the bug can walk, flap its wings, move its
pincers, move its jaw and move its eyes - depending on which
model is being constructed.
range had totally escaped me until the Bug Builder turned
up at our offices. And that is a shame. More work needs to
be done - in schools if necessary - to ensure that this range
gets maximum publicity. They are well constructed and teach
children the basic principles behind gears, motors, electric
circuits and energy conversion.
I was a kid I used to smash open my toys to find out how they
worked - who didn't. With this range children won't have to.
They'll already know how it works as they built it in the
first place. This will keep intelligent kids amused for hours.
only real fault I can find with this is that it wasn't launched
20 years ago when I was growing up.
