Circuit Explorer combines simple circuits and big imaginations! Construction play meets electrical engineering in this snap together building system that comes in three different playsets! Kids line up the circuitry graphics on the oversized pieces and snap them together to build a fully powered, large-scale, space-themed world. Connect the pieces to make out-of-this-world custom, light-up, builds. Then, launch into hours of screen-free, pretend-play fun with the included astronaut and robot figures! This playset includes a Deluxe Base Station with towers, a rotating diner sign, a planetarium with a color-changing dome, a voice synthesizer that includes 10 space sounds, a Communication Station with a rotating Radar Dish, and one fully-powered Space Rover and a free rolling Rover, both with Light up headlights.
Families work together in this cooperative strategy game to get to the moon and back. One player acts as Mission Control while the others play as astronauts. Resolve flight stages, repair systems, and complete experiments.
Kids learn about planets, stars, eclipses, meteors, and more when they create a colorful and full-scale solar system. Features 20 ready-to-go experiments with items from the box and with common household finds. Other STEAM kits include Paper Flowers, Liquid, and Gross which teach through water-based experiments.
