Fun and Educational toy ideas for kids from ThinkFun Maker Studio:Propellers

My family loves all kinds of challenges and ThinkFun games specialize in fun challenges for the mind. We have been enjoying their puzzles and games for years. They have so many great options for toys that are enjoyable but give your brain a break from the electronics, bells and whistles that get old after a while. ThinkFun designs puzzles and game sets for kids and adults of all ages. My tween has been enjoying them since she was a toddler. They have recently launch a line of Maker Studio products that get kids thinking and constructing. Perfect for kids and adults that enjoy STEM or if you are encouraging your kids in that direction. 

This set was designed by engineers to help your little  engineers get excited about building! Maker Studio Construction Sets inspire  a love for engineering with easy to understand instructions. Reuse, recycle and use your maker parts to transform everyday things into cool, working, kinetic inventions. This set features propellers that let you construct a chopper, a biplane, a windmill and a even a functional plane. 

This set lets you do so much too. Once you've completed your item, you can put your thinking hat on  and use your new creations to complete 10 different engineering challenges. These are real challenges too and will have you pondering. My 11 year old has been having fun with it for the past week or two. You'll become a true engineer as you design your solutions to the engineering challenges. Each Maker Studio Set comes with all the basic elements so you can build just about anything-all you need is a little imagination and a few simple items we have at home like a cardboard toilet paper roll for example.

If you enjoy this Maker Studio then you should check out  and consider all three Maker Studio sets-Propellers, Gears and Winches. You can mix and match and even combine the different sets for more building fun. Who knows what a creative kid or adult can create? Thes best part is that each set is embedded with brain building essentials that are really necessary for problem solving in today's high tech world. Think about how sets like this magically help develop skills such as spatial and sequential reasoning, beginning physics, creativity and even executive function.

You can find this great ThinkFun Maker Studio Propeller Set on Amazon for the easiest shopping experience ever. Let me know what you think.
