Learn all about the basic principles of how magnets repel and attract each other thanks to OWI’S Magnetic Levitation Express.
A wonderful combination of science and design, it acts as the perfect tool to engage children’s minds. With 155 pieces to assemble, it explores electro-magnetic theory and explains how electromagnets, propulsion magnets and levitation magnets are used to create propulsion. This intriguing kit does require assembly, so get your tools at the ready (screwdriver and diagonal cutter) but not to fret as expert studies have shown that the retention of child’s learning development is multiplied if they can coordinate reading with actual hands on experience. With a detailed, easy to follow instruction manual included you’ll also learn about the world’s fastest train, The Shanghai, the first commercially operated high-speed magnetic levitation line in the world clocking top speeds of 268mph!

Construction kits that involve the opportunity to build cool, outlandish models are popular at this age.
