Construct five different models using ultralight parts and a rubber band powered engine.
This brilliant set features a fully detailed 16 page instruction booklet, showing you how to build five different models including an airplane, helicopter, fan car, airboat and a hydrofoil. Using a unique reversible propeller and ultralight parts, observe your builds in action as they fly through the air and speed along. Learn how propellers push vehicles forward, how rubber bands store energy and even how elasticity makes your boat zoom across the water! A fun and informative project build set that's very satisfying.

Eight year olds like more challenging stuff and adventures. Try the Walkie Talkies or the Slingball Challenge for outside. Anything involving potential explosions or high speed makes a good present. Or anything they can throw or shoot at someone else.
