Physics: The Science of Matter & Energy
Force = mass x acceleration - And don't forget to factor in the fun!
Sure, you've probably heard of a chemistry set. But a physics set? This is something new. Like chemistry, physics is an essential science for everyone to study, and Physics Workshop is the essential introduction to physics.
Through building 36 models and 37 experiments (with 305 building pieces), the principles of physics are at work before your very eyes.
Why does a brick feel heavier than a pencil? At what angle should you throw a ball into the air to get the greatest distance? How is a screw like a ramp? Why can you balance more easily on a bicycle when you are moving than when you are stopped? How does a car transfer power from the engine to the wheels? What is power anyway? Gravity, force, simple machines, acceleration, momentum, work, and power are all demonstrated right in front of you--a hands-on approach that is fun and effective.

(Two 1.5 Volt C-type batteries, not included, are required for some 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.

"The clear photo layout on the box leads me to believe the instructions will be clear and intuitive to my child. This will help keep my son's frustration level low."

My son won't play with action figures or building toys so it is always a challenge to find toys that will stimulate his mind. Once he puts a building set together, he doesn't see the purpose in playing with it anymore. We feel the Physics Workshop was money well spent and we see our son wanting to run the experiments in this kit. He really likes the science behind the toy. It came with a pamphlet listing more toys from this brand and he is very interested in getting his hands on those, too.
