Thames & Kosmos Kids First Automobile Engineer
Kids First is a new line of construction kits that introduces scientific topics and hands-on empirical learning. Automobile Engineer presents a funny story about two inquisitive kids on a trip to the supermarket with their dad. Along this roundabout journey, they build vehicles to help people in their town solve problems and complete tasks. As kids follow along, they can build models of the 10 vehicles in the story. Large, colorful plastic building pieces make it easy for small hands to put the models together. The kids start out by building a minivan to take them to the supermarket. Along the way, they pass a construction site where they build a crane truck to help the workers lift some beams to the top of their structure. As they continue along their trip, they also build a fire truck, tractor, school bus, motorcycle, cement truck, forklift, pickup truck, and racecar to help their friends out. From each humorous segment of their silly adventure, the kids learn something new and collect a funny souvenir.• 70 pieces• Durable storage case• 24-page storybook manual• Promotes STEM skills• Develops fine motors skills• Builds science and math comprehension• Strengthens reasoning and visual-spatial skillsAge Recommendation: Ages 3 to 7
