Recycle a simple metal drink can and make your very own working cable car.
This fun kit contains everything you need to transform an old can into a fully operational cable car that runs continuously. Run it across the garden, bedroom or playroom then watch it go to and fro or up and down. A very cool mechanical science project that's very satisfying and fun.
Nine year olds are clever little fellows and have lots of interests. Great presents for 9 year old boys are remote controlled cars or flying objects, science construction kits, anything that shoots, or outdoor gear. Magic is popular and anything involving pranks will appeal to that 9 year old sense of fun. Or get them a great book.
