MakerStudio Kits by ThinkFun are a Must-Buy!

Maker-1702-HiResSpill

This is more than just a toy and more than just a building kit! I think that it is actually pretty unique. If you have a son or daughter who loves to build and be creative, then this set is a must-buy! It is a lot of fun too! All the pieces are included except for the household type of items such as boxes and bottles. I like that the directions are pretty easy to follow but that they also allow for creativity. This is an important factor with my son. Let’s just say he prefers to be a bit unique! I also like that there is a variety of choices of machines that can be built. My son found this to be a lot of fun and I highly recommend for ages 7+.

The ThinkFun MakerStudio Propellers Building Kit is also a lot of fun!

This is another creative and fun Maker Studio kit from ThinkFun! What I like about this one is that it is great for younger kids (ages 6) but also great for older kids. Even my 12-year-old son enjoyed making this one. It has super easy to follow instructions and allows for creativity. There is also a choice of making different things such as a windmill or a plane. Kids can even make up their own design. I highly recommend for ages 6-14.
