Clean Muscle-Powered Electricity
What could be a cleaner source of energy than your own muscles? Perisphere and Trylon's Electric Vehicles Wind-up Energy Kit uses a hand crank generator to power 11 different models.

Power 11 Models, Plus Light LEDs
Electric Vehicles models include an airplane, radar car, drilling car, space station, well-digging machine, and many more. The powerful dynamo allows you not only to fuel an electric motor to power your vehicles, but also to light LEDs.

Build and Experiment
After your child assembles each Electric Vehicles model, the experimenting begins. Have him adjust the crank time and the crank frequency and see how these changes affect the performance of his models. Plus, the Electric Vehicles hand-crank generator doubles as a hand-powered LED flashlight.

Full Color Step-by-step Instructions
Includes full-color instructions that illustrate the step-by-step assembly of each Electric Vehicles Wind-up Energy model. Not a lot of reading is required, so your reluctant reader should not be intimidated by this kit.
Use the wind-up engine to make your vehicles go or power an LED light!

    Will Grow with Child January 15, 2013
    Reviewer: Martianne  
    Santa brought this to our 7 year old this year, and, with my help, he was able to put it together and use it just fine. In fact, he was EAGR to do so. The only problem we found was that our son's younger sibs are too intersted in the set as well. With all the small pieces and without a good system for storing them (even if there is a plastic molded piece for this in the box), we found we had to temporarily hide the set in order to ensure it can grow with the kiddoes. We plan to use it for both fun and learning -- and, over time -- INDPEPENDENT fun and learning --so we don't want pieces going missing before the kdis are even old enough to use it all on their own.

    Ouch! Didn't work at all! December 8, 2012
    Reviewer: ArtemesiaGirl  
    My 10 year old son was never able to get this toy to work. He wound the mechanism and it would not move the vehicles. Even assitance from older family members couldn't get it to work. It was a disappointing Christmas gift. :(

    lots of fun November 23, 2010
    Reviewer: Anonymous Person from United States  
    This set is a very nice kit.  Upon opening the box, I was pleased with how it was nicely organized.  The pieces are easy to identify, so when following the directions, it is easy to find what you need.  We loved that there were many different vehicles could be made...my sons couldn't wait to finish one so they could start another. What a fun toy.  thanks.
