Build your own wiggling, motorised monsters that you control.
This 130 piece motorised set is a great way to learn about building with cogs and gears while making creatures that are controlled by the hand set. There are easy to follow colour coded instructions to build four different moving creatures, using the colourful gears, chomping teeth, silly springs, whiskers, flashing lights and even scary, glow-in-the-dark eyeballs. Or get creative and design your own creature - ideal starter for future Frankensteins!
For entry level engineers, here is a practical science kit.£28.99
Construct a monkey jungle, turn the gears and watch them go!£39.95
Growing stuff is now very appealing. As is making stuff in the kitchen which can be a really fun, joint activity. There is nothing like melting chocolate or making bread to bring out the inner creative. The Rapid Fire Power Popper is one of our top toys and a great present for 7 year olds for when they are being less creative and want to chase their little friends all over the garden.
