Product Description

Product Description

Engino Mechanical Science: Pulleys. This Engino set introduces young engineers and physicists the ways pulleys can be used to transfer force with reduced friction and how to increase force or speed and surprising rates. Build 5 working models including an oil drill, a stationary bike, cranes, bridges, and a machanical blender. A 40 page activity book is uncluded with innovative experiments and detailed explanations of various technical and scientific principles and how they are applied. The Engino Toy System is perhaps the most advanced and versatile three dimensional construction toy in the market today. It offers both children and adults unique opportunities for design and creation. The system is comprised of multi-faceted rods and connectors that share some unique geometrical features that allow connectivity on up to 6 sides simultaneously. In essence, the patent pending design transforms rods into connectors and allows dense or open construction. This allows engineers to build simple or complex models quickly with a smaller number of different components.

I ordered this for my 7 year old going on 8 to get him interested in engineering before he took robotics class during the summer. He opened the product and was overwhelmed with all the small writing of the instructions. Definitely, requires an adult to help. He closed the box up and has not opened it since. My son puts together a lot of the Lego collections and loves them. The instructions are visual and color coded for easier assembly. I am looking for something in between Legos but not as complex as this product. When he is older I will definetely come back to it but right now I want my son to stay interested in science and engineering and think it is FUN without feeling overwhelmed.

I bought this because of the Elenco name attached to it and the snap circuits from Elenco was a fantastic set.

Build quality:
The parts are plastic and solid enough, but sometimes removing the smaller parts from smaller parts can be a pain in the butt.

Educational Value:
It's not quiet there. There is an accompanying book but there's not enough explanation of each thing you build and how it relates to what the kit is for.

Instructions:
Here are two major issues:
1. The instructions are very dense. Too much, especially with regards to making sure you have the parts oriented the correct way. My 8 year old was able to follow them, but it could have used fewer per page so they are bigger and more clear
2. The instructions for how the string interacts with the crank usually show you just looping the string around the crank, which does not work most of the time. The crank turns the shaft and the string doesn't wind up. You have to add one of the wheels and tie it in a certain way to get it to wind.

This product is a bit flimsy (the axle was cracked and crank handle easily falls apart) and the instructions are not the best. I am very mechanical and helped put them together after my 9 an 11 year-olds got very frustrated. My kids are used to Lego and Kinex-type step-by-step easy-to-follow instructions, but this product expects you to look at a picture to figure out some of it and the pictures are not all mechanical drawings. Once we got it together, it was not clear how to attach the string to the pulley so we made due with what we could and sometimes it worked. I had hoped to use some of the set-ups to do the experiments but the experiments are rather simple, like, when you use a bigger pulley it takes fewer rotations to pull it up than it does with a small pulley. This is a concept for younger kids than the age of kids who can actually put it together. It is pretty nice to make and play with the fork-lift and draw bridge but it is not as educational as I had hoped.

The instructions are awful, needs an adult to help. Ridiculously over ( badly) designed. It does not work, the string does not attach to the axle securely. Its flimsy, the lift gets stuck, its unstable. Designed by numpties who don't understand pulleys, mechanics, instructions or children. The makers are having a laugh. Avoid.

My 10-year old son came home from school one day totally excited about learning (totally outside of normal for him). The difference was the topic; in this case rudimentary physics. In looking for something for his b-day I came across this Lego-like construction set with a bent toward physics. The box includes a set of instructions for several models that use pulleys plus a booklet with fun activities and very interesting educational facts/stories. My son was and still is super excited to build each thing and show it off to mom; explaining what each part is and what it does.

The pieces snap together easily and the building instructions are generally clear and understandable. Some of the final products once put together were a little wobbly but worked well for demonstrating different uses for pulleys. The parts themselves are of good quality and seem sturdy. There are some very small pieces so I don't recommend it for a house with infants.

I plan to buy more in the collection and continue bonding with my son.

I ordered this for my daughter who had a project due and she ended up getting an A for her efforts. This product rocks we will be buying more products of this nature.
