Building sets for kids will spark hours of imaginative play, while teaching kids about balance, proportion, the laws of energy and more. And at MindWare you will find kids construction sets for all ages and interests. Kids can build roller coasters, recycled robots, a working catapult or launch a baking soda and vinegar powered rocket. Get your kids hooked on building sets for kids and while they learn about design and mechanical science and they may decide that architecture or engineering is in their future.
Both the K'Nex Double Doom Roller Coaster and the K'Nex Hyperspeed Hangtime Roller Coaster stand over three feet tall and provide hours of fun. For building on a bigger scale, the Chaos Tower set allow kids to build structures up to 6-feet tall or 5-feet wide. With over 600 pieces this set has infinite construction possibilities.
Mecho Motorize Kits give kids a head start in mechanical sciences and building real, working machines with these easy-to build kits. Choose from the Robo Bug, a Race Car and the Claw Bot kit, or get all three for hours of building fun.
Kid's First building kits are created for children ages 3-7. Three building block systems include a first look at life as an Amusement Park, Automotive or Aircraft Engineer. Each Kids First building block set has a storybook design manual and a storage case for all the parts.
If you want to start with the basics robotics kit, here's a fun one. The Recycled Robot Kits get kids working creatively and recycling at the same time. Tin Can Robot will turn one recycled soda can into a silly robot that moves, the Tin Can Cable Car can be rigged to run back and forth across the room and the Brush Robot looks like he's cleaning up as he scoots across the floor on his brush base.
KEVA Catapult, Wrecking Ball and Trebuchet all offer unique, building options that culminate in exciting action and working models of gravity, energy and motion. These exclusive KEVA sets will inspire future engineers, architects and designers at home and in the classroom.
Classic Baking Soda and Vinegar Rocket Sets let you build your own rockets and propel them with a chemical reaction from your kitchen! Kids learn about solutions and proportions as they vary the fuel ingredients to see if they can boost each rocket's trajectory. The classic 17" rocket will fly up to 100 feet in the air and the rocket car can travel over 200 feet.
