MindWare MindWare Keva Contraptions 200 Plank Set

About the MindWare Keva Contraptions 200 Plank Set

What goes up must come down, and with the Mindware Keva Contraptions 200 Plank Set, both parts of the process are equally fun! Keva Contraptions sets let kids build big and elaborate ball runs – and then, when they’re ready to try a different design, they can knock their contraptions down and start over again!

 

This enchanting building kit uses no connectors or glue to hold the identical pine wood Keva Planks together, so making a Keva Contraption requires a lot of patience and concentration. But there’s a big payoff when the long, slow process of building is complete and the Contraption works – and this teaches kids that there’s a lot to be gained by being patient. Reviewers tell us that their kids will spend hours and hours carefully building and tweaking Keva structures, and then taking the construction principles they learn and inventing their own Contraptions. It’s a fun way to exercise problem-solving skills and creativity, and even teaches some very basic physics.

 

Plus, because the Mindware Keva Contraptions 200 Plank Set has a huge number of identical Keva Planks pieces, and because building appeals to such a wide age range, this is an activity that pulls in parents and younger siblings too, for some serious family fun. And then, of course, there’s the part where your kid gets to knock it all down! The Mindware Keva Contraptions 200 Plank Set includes 200 identical wooden Keva planks (made with earth-friendly pine), 2 lightweight ping pong balls, and an 18 page idea book with project photos. For ages 7 and up.



WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts. Not for children under 3 years.
