Most of my collections are about Rokenbok and K'nex, but have any of you purchased or used these items?
The Ferris Wheel is a stand alone model, but I was very surprised to see the extent of the trains that people have built. (There are quite a few cool videos on Youtube and I learned that there are even regional clubs dedicated to Lego trains, layout and acessories.)
Even after calling the company, I am having a tough time explaining the advantages and disadvantages of buying the 9 Volt models or the radio controlled (RC) models - as they are not always interchangable.
Do any of you have experiences with these toys and would allowing 6th graders to build and use this system be eduational?
I would appreciate any comments about this - as I really know nothing about it.
Have a great day!
I think Lego can be very educational, and appropriate for 6th graders. Cost could be an issue. It takes a lot of pieces to really build something cool.
Do you have a preference?
FlyingScooter - - - > Rokenbok is a very cool system. I only wish the range of the transmitter was longer. They describe it as having a 12 foot radius. I would love for the device to cover an entire gymnasium. If you add more transmitters you don't increase the range. Instead you tend to send confusing signals to the mini robots.
Yes it is expensive, (MOst quality toys are) but quite duarable.
