    Two New Learning Toys From Thames & Kosmos.

    Here's the latest info from the company: 

    Remote-Control Machines: Construction Vehicles

     

    Build eight models of realistic heavy-duty construction vehicles and control them with a remote-control unit.  Build a bulldozer with a blade that can be raised and lowered, a backhoe with a digging bucket that can move inward and outward, and a dump truck with a dump bed that can be raised up to empty its contents. Make a mobile crane truck with a crane arm that moves up and down, a skid loader with a bucket that also moves up and down, and a road grader with a scraper blade that turns left and right. Assemble a forklift with a fork that can be raised and lowered and a concrete mixer truck with a mixing drum that rotates. A 64-page, full-color manual guides you through model building and lets kids discover how they can use physics to their advantage to move massive amounts of soil and rock. Investigate the concepts of force, torque, and simple machines with these working models. Under $100.
