Kid's First building kits are the perfect first building experience for kids age 3 and up. These building block systems include a first look at life as an Amusement Park Engineer, Automotive Engineer or Aircraft Engineer. Each Kids First building block set has a storybook design manual that leads kids through a delightful story containing all of the models they are going to build as they go along. Each story has a group of friends who help others as they build the needed vehicles and amusement park rides. You will find that kids enjoy the story as much as they do the building! Plus, each set can be used to build multiple projects. And when the storybook projects are completed, kids can use the set to build their own vehicles, rides and contraptions providing hours of additional fun. Each kit comes with a storage case for all the parts.
