Over the past few days I’ve been writing about a couple of interesting DIY toys and kits for young kids that help them develop their construction and engineering skills early on in life and I have covered quite a few useful gift ideas for Christmas as well. For example you might find that this remotely controlled excavator or perhaps a more complex LEGO-like do-it-yourself RC robot kit may just be the one gift that you’re looking for for your kids this season.
Construction kit for kids
Speaking of build your own remote control toy kits, I would like to quickly go over a particular car building kit that consists of 30 different parts, all of which can be removed and reattached in order to build a fun and colorful sports racing car that can be controlled using a remote.
While the numerous build your own toy car kits on the market are nothing new, this Do It Yourself RC racing car by ThinkGizmos is in a league of its own thanks to its realistic sound effects and actual working headlights. Not to mention the fact that you’ll get a fully functional toy drill powered by two AA batteries along with the set making it a great toy for young mechanics to learn the most basic aspects of building a car.
Fun construction toy for kids
It’s a dream come true for any child, whether boy or girl, who is showing increased interest in cars, sports cars and remotely controlled vehicles as a whole and more importantly, it’s perfect for kids who enjoy assembling together their own toys instead of playing with boring static trinkets built by someone else.
Build your own car kit: what’s in the box?
Like every other ThinkGizmos toy, it comes with a complete manual written in the English, Spanish, German, Italian and French languages.
There are a total of 30 different and colorful parts with distinct shape and size so your child can figure out which part goes where rather easily. Still, there’s enough room left for the more creative thinker, meaning that some parts in the set can be used to modify the aesthetic look of the car.
The manufacturer has set a fairly wide recommended age group for this toy ranging from toddles as young as 3 years old to someone who’s about to enter school for the first time.
