    why we love it

    Preschoolers and young elementary students will take a big bite of science when they play with this incredible construction set. Using wood blocks, plastic clamps and wheels, kids will build simple machines that create mesmerizing optical effects. They’ll assemble a zoetrope and make animated pictures. Another model will spin patterned disks to make optical illusions. For ages three to eight.

    Contents: film drum, 2 paper strips with different motifs, 2 blank paper strips, 5 effect disks, 1 disk with clip for 2 erasable blank disks, 4 eyelets, 4 silicon rings in two sizes, 6 construction block clamps, 4 wheel clamps, 5 construction blocks. Includes instruction booklet. Blocks measure 1.5 x 6.5 inches and 1 x 3.5 inches. Made in Germany.

    WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD—Small parts. Not for children younger than three years.

    Spatial thinking is an important skill that allows people to visualize what they can’t see or touch. It’s necessary for problem solving. Some fields that require spatial-thinking ability are architecture, geology and engineering.

    It's truly rare these days that a company not only stands behind its products, but also its customers. I have ordered a number of times from Imagine Toys, and will continue to do so for a long time to come. Everyone I have dealt with, whether through email, chat box, or on the phone, has been so pleasant and accommodating. It truly means a lot. Many thanks,
