I have a great product for those of you who have young engineers at home, or those that like to tinker around making things. Brain Crunch has a wonderful product called Smart Machines! They remind me of Legos in the sense that you build something from small individual pieces. What’s special about Smart Machines is the ability to put a small motor into your creation and have it be controlled by a remote!
Each of the Smart Machines sets come with the ability to make four different machines using the same set. My particular Smart Machine can make the following machines:
- Duck Robot
- Train Robot
- Fire Truck Robot
- Skier Robot
The robots each have a different skill level, which helps challenge your builders mind and teaches patience. The book that comes with he set gives detailed instruction on how to make each robot, as well as how to add the motor and sync with the remote control. You will need 2 AA batteries and 3 AAA batteries once all is finished.
These machines are recommended for children 8 years of age or older however my son will be 7 soon and I think he’d really enjoying doing this with his dad. My husband grew up loving Lego’s and if he’s being honest he still very much enjoys them. This will be a fantastic learning and bonding experience for the both of them. There are lots of small pieces so please be aware of them when playing with them. I’d hate for little fingers, or animals to get a hold of them.
Brain Crunch offers two different Smart Machines kit, a blue one and a green one! The kit’s sell for $59.99 on their website. I would say that each kit is worth the price as you get the chance to make several different robots. You can check out all of the mind challenging products Brain Crunch has to offer.
