I loved how interactive this project was once the crane was completed. You could change the amount of pulleys on the crane for more versatility and was overall easy to assemble. A great tool to teach my child how a pulley system works and occupied him for hours as he experimented with different items around our house.

This crate was super entertaining after completing the project. So many great experiments were possible -- my husband and son had so much fun doing different challenges seeing how heavy an item could be before the crane tipped over while lifting. My son was so proud of his accomplishment!
