(Almost) Wordless Wednesday

Okay, here we go! Last week I posted about the Eitech motorcycle we made.
That was the small kit.
It came out nice, so we went ahead and opened the bigger, more complex train.

We started with this...

Got the pieces organized, and started reading the directions.

His fingers were just the right size to tighten those washers.
I love how hard he concentrated on getting things into place.

It took a bit to build. There was some trial and error.
But it came out so great in the end. My son loves it & so do I!
A Note for Those Who Might Like to Have their Own
If you want to see the original review, and/or enter to win one of your own, I have a giveaway going on (winner chooses one of four kits). That link is here. You can also visit Eitech Toys on their website, and follow them on Facebook and/or Twitter.

Grace Abonillo said...

Pretty intricate thing to build/set up.. Great patience your little man have.. I couldn't do that.. hahaha

Rose-Marie said...

I love toys like this that help develop concentration and patience, and also thinking through things that have multiple pieces, I think it helps develop skills that are great esp when you are older. Many ppl lose patience with anything intricate, that could be from reading complex regulations (good if you want to be an attorney, etc.), to being a home designer, engineer, etc. He seems very bright!
