A great STEM learning resource, which helps develop fine motor skills, visual-spatial skills, and reasoning and concept development skills.
The story-based construction kit is an excellent early development toy. The chunky pieces and easy instructions mean children from 3 years old can enjoy independently building mechanical models they will be very proud of.
Read the funny story of two inquisitive kids and build simple models of the vehicles they encounter on their comical trip to the supermarket with their dad. Along this roundabout journey, the kids build various vehicles to help the people in their town solve problems and complete tasks. As you follow the story, you can build models of the 10 vehicles in the story. Large, colourful plastic building pieces make it easy for small hands to put the models together.
The kids start out by building a minivan to take them to the supermarket. Along the way, they pass a construction site where they build a crane truck to help the workers lift some beams to the top of their structure. As they continue along their trip, they also build a fire truck, tractor, school bus, motorcycle, cement truck, forklift, pickup truck, and racing car to help their friends out. From each humorous segment of their silly adventure, the kids learn something new and collect a funny souvenir.
This 70-piece science kit combined with the beautifully illustrated storybook provides an engaging way to teach simple engineering concepts to preschool-age kids. Start laying the groundwork for strong STEM related skills and comprehension.

A good amount of the components can be put together by a 3yr old but not all. The same can be said for pulling them apart once you have built something. Maybe more suited to 4+ but at least as an adult you get the first year building the different automobiles yourself :D
Tip: Some of the smaller parts get stuck together, green ones and white ones. Just pop them in a cup of boiling water for 20 seconds or so and then fish them out. They should then come apart with a little twisting motion.
