Timberdoodle's review
Amusement Park Engineer
What do you need to teach STEM to your preschooler? An engaging storyline to motivate problem solving? Check. A wordless building manual? Check. Large colorful pieces made for chubby hands? Check yet again. The narrative of Amusement Park Engineer follows a family around the fairgrounds as the children build, fix, and enjoy various amusement park rides.

As you read the story to your child, he will be asked to build the 20 structures (only one model can be built at a time) in the account. His first challenge will be breathing new life into the broken-down rollercoaster by testing out different slopes, humps, bends, and even varying the weight of the car. Then he is on to building a Ferris wheel, carousel, bumper car, free-fall tower, and more! What a lovely way to learn physics! Amusement Park Engineer lays the groundwork for strong STEM (thatís science, technology, engineering, and math) skills and comprehension, and helps develop fine motor skills, visual-spatial skills, and reasoning and concept-development skills. Amusement Park Engineer includes a beautifully-illustrated 32-page storybook, 97 extra-chunky pieces, and a durable storage case with snap-shut lid.

Another outstanding component of Timberdoodle's 2017 PreK Curriculum Kit!

Amusement Park Engineer January 31, 2017
Reviewer: Ruby, age 4.5 from USA  
I really enjoy playing with the Amusement Park Engineer set.  I especially enjoy it when Daddy builds it with me. Daddy says some parts can be a bit difficult for small hands and require an adult's help. A few of the models are not designed well enough to stay together, such as the Merry Go Round.  Mommy and Daddy disagree with me on the star rating and feel that it is closer to a 4 rather than a 5 due to the fact that some pieces come together too tightly and others not tight enough to complete some of the models as instructed.
