Trying to ensure that today's generation of kids grow up to
read and write properly is a serious issue that society is
trying to tackle. The sad fact is that kids can't be bothered
any more. From the moment they can walk they are plonked down
in front of the TV. And why would they want to read a book
when a TV show can impart much more visual stimulation?
Builders' range of IQ Science toys are designed to push the
younger generation into learning about science. Well, it could
be a tall order with the Robot Racer kit. First off the finished
robot resembles no robot I have ever seen. And the suggestion
of 'other exciting robots' in the instructions didn't exactly
fill me with enthusiasm.
the plus side this range will, more than likely, help children
to take the next progressive stage (from Lego to Technical
Lego to the IQ Science range to kits for older children that
concentrate on building electronic equipment) in their development.
seen the other IQ Science kits and they are all more impressive
than this. I can see this kit being played with for a few
days before the owner gets bored with it an sticks it in the
cupboard. If they are lucky they will be bought the other
sets as they mature - that's the good thing about these kits,
they all follow the same basic building blocks so several
kits can be used to create a better robot.
do hope I am wrong, because I truly believe in what IQ Builders
is trying to provide for the younger generation, but I do
feel that the simplistic design of this toy will put a lot
of children off even opening the box.
