May the force be with you! Learn about forces and simple machines with this Physics Discovery Kit.
Construct 12 models and conduct experiments with this kit. Each model demonstrates a fundamental idea in mechanical physics. For example, you can build a balance scale to learn about lever arms, a freight elevator to learn about pulleys and a bicycle to learn about wheels.
Build a simple spring scale to measure the forces acting on your models and an inclined plane to learn about normal force and gravitational force. Construct a spinning motion picture machine to learn about centripetal and centrifugal forces, and a geared transmission to learn about gears. Make a water wheel powered crane and a catapult to learn about the transfer of energy.
Finally, put your physics knowledge to the test by building a sailing land yacht and a rubber band powered dragster. The 48-page book offers illustrated instructions for the building projects and experiments.

As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 8 years of age.
