CHOKING HAZARD -- Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.
Fun for Future Engineers -- Hands-on construction and creation of four simple machines is a fun introduction into building and the mechanics of hydraulic machines. -- Using all pre-cut pieces, glue, and simple instructions, you can make a Platform Lifter, Scissor Lift, Cherry Picker, and Excavator. -- The Platform Lifter provides an excellent example of how we use technology to move people and materials around. -- The Scissor Lift uses the same principles and construction that is common to industrial scissor lifters. -- The Cherry Picker is similar to the ones often mounted on truck beds to steadily lift people and parts to great heights. -- The Excavator kit uses first and third class lever like the ones used in trucks at most construction sites. -- Each working model uses water instead of hydraulic fluid. No batteries are needed to power these models. -- Recommended for ages 8 and up.
From the Manufacturer
The simple machine series is designed to introduce hydraulics and simple machines in a hands-on manner. The models in this 4 in 1 multipack teach children about howl ever and linkages work. Once made, the models may inspire kids to design machines of their own, and make connections with the engineering of the full sized machines we see on building sites.

I'll also note I was pleased with how easy it was to assemble. The instructions were adequate and they didn't skimp on the consumable parts. There really isn't anything I could have asked them to do differently on this kit.
I recommend these models to all parents with engineering interests. Parental help is needed for the assembly.
