This structural toy is the perfect gift for young engineers (and old ones, too)

1 5 0

There are plenty of toys that turn kids into engineers. Lego uses interlocking plastic bricks; Technic even includes mechanical elements like axles and gears. You can make amazing things with both, from starships to car engines, but there are limits to their realism. One example: If you shake a model of the Empire State Building made with Lego bricks, it will not crumble like the real building would under the force of a strong earthquake. The physical properties of the plastic and its form don’t allow it.
