Unique Learning Experience
Creating a flying UFO from “scratch” with rudimentary electronic pieces was highly satisfying to us, and we think Electronic Snap Circuits may well help young students gain and foster an appreciation for, and interest in, how electronics work and are built.

For students who are already learning about electronics in school, this set creates a hands-on experience that makes for more fun than reading about how these things work in a textbook.
So don’t be surprised if report cards come back with higher grades after playing with this toy.

The Snap Circuits SC-300 is available now for US $39.67 (You Save: $20.32 , -34% and free shipping too!)


Revell Vexplorer Robotics System: a robot kit from another planet!

We love toys, we love robots, we love technostuff that moves and so on.
But this is another thing.
It’s the Revell Vexplorer!

Revell Vexplorer is the ideal robot kit for the novice builder. Complete with detailed step-by-step plans, this almost-ready-to-run kit comes with pre-assembled modules making it quick and easy to build. Best of all, your robot is compatible with VEX Motion and Structure parts allowing you to expand and grow your robot.

The Revell Vexplorer comes in a huge well-protected package with a carrying handle. You won’t miss this box on the shelf or under the Christmas tree! Inside the box is a huge styrofoam tray that has each of the pre-assembled modules as well as the compulsory bag of parts needed to finish the assembly.

The foundation of this project is the lower hull that consists of pre-formed and pre-holed aluminum C-channels. The workmanship is excellent. Two of the C-channels are pre-installed on the drive systems (actually serving as the mounts for the axles, motor and drive gears.

But it’s much More Than A Toy!

With more than 300 parts, the Revell Vexplorer allows users to create, experiment, and play with endless combinations of radio-controlled robotic activity. Designed by Revell Monogram, this robotic design system is endorsed by such prestigious organizations as NASA, Carnegie Mellon, and FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology). Young and old electronics and robot enthusiasts will have a blast learning about robotic configuration through hands-on experience. In less than an hour, users can construct their very own robot. Compatible with the entire Vex system, the Vexplorer can be easily expanded using optional Vex accessories and mechanical parts from other Vex machines.

More than a mere toy, the Revell Vexplorer boasts its own built-in spy camera, transmitting live color pictures with sound to any standard television. Utilizing a camera receiver module box, it broadcasts video over distances up to 150 feet. The Vexplorer also makes lifting and moving objects around both fun and challenging. The claw is strong enough to pick up a full 12-ounce can, yet delicate enough to handle a bird’s feather. By simply keeping the claw control held down, the sensitive, soft plastic grip material keeps things clenched. Setting a can of soda back down without dropping it is another story — that takes practice.

Built with a sturdy, metal base, arm, and arm support, the Revell Vexplorer can stand up to its share of wear and tear. It operates with many metal and durable plastic pieces, including four motors and 24 gears, as well as cables, harnesses, tools, screws, nuts, bolts, and more. The six rubber-like plastic tires with tread grips make for easy rolling over most even surfaces. However, getting over some bumps can prove frustrating, if not outright impossible at times.

Price? It’s now 23% off at US $ 229.99!
