What you get
Build a disk launcher and explore physics by sending disks zooming across the room! After you make your flying toys, design your own game pieces using different clay techniques, and play and create games using your disk launcher!
Everything needed, from materials to illustrated directions, is included, along with explore!, a bonus play & learn magazine with extra projects and activities! This project started out as a game idea to learn about piggy banks. It was so much fun, though, that we decided to build a whole crate around it instead!”- The KiwiCo Product Design team

These actually work. I like the disk launchers and the book explaining the science behind it was very interesting. My only issue is that it is so easy to lose the small disks. A larger object such as a ball would have been more preferable, I hope my boys learned something. Overall a good product that works well.
My 6 yr old son was able to assemble by himself and spent hours playing with this one. Probably his favorite one yet!
My son always looks forward to his crate every month and this one did not dissapoint! He was so excited that he could create his own games and even made up rule books for them!
