    Best project Yet

    This was the most fun Holiday craft and the kids absolutely loved it and still do. It taught them so much about magnets and gears. They also used their new knowledge to try and fix decorations that weren’t quite working correctly. One of the best ones so far.

    So fun

    This one actually went all wrong for my daughter (7) but figuring out why was a really good process for her! Love!

    Simple, cute, educational

    My son really enjoyed making this and watching the skaters. Well made aside from the paper props, which wouldn't stay in the felt fabric and have been super annoying. The aesthetic is nice. The only improvement I would suggest is a slower, or variable, speed motor. The skaters kind of go crazy, meaning it can't stay turned on for too long because it's just a bit much (my son agrees). Overall we liked connecting the wires, moving the gears around, watching how the magnets move the metal skates, and changing the color of the ice.

    A new favorite!

    My children loved building this rink. They’ve asked to build it again and again and it’s holding up well. They get to chose whether to watch the gears with a clear ice or cover up the gears and watch and wonder with the blue ice. A new holiday favorite that I’m sure will entertain us for years to come.
