    Mix of art and science

    The mix of painting and construction were perfectly balanced to keep my daughter's interest. She knew how to follow the directions carefully and gained understanding naturally. The included literature was also super informative!

    Pendulum power!

    The pendulum powered game was a great tool to show my kids that toys don't need electronics to be fun, and also learn about different sources of power.

    Rewarding to build

    My daughter really enjoyed constructing something that moves. Super fun to assemble two different projects that she was able to play with afterwards. It was really rewards for her to make her own game, as well decorate the bird on her own.
