Thames & Kosmos Air-Walker
Are you in need of the perfect gift for your future engineer or technology lover? Bring on the imagination, bring on the fun! The Air-Walker is an exciting creation from Thames & Kosmos, a company founded by a science museum director and built upon the principle that toys should be engaging, fun, and effective teaching tools.
The Air-Walker is a robot that your child can build all on their own – and even create different models that do different things. The genius toy moves about on a wall, and is even able to climb up! Not only will your kiddo be able to experiment with making the robot move in different ways, but they’ll also be using important science skills with this STEM-focused kit.
Thames & Kosmos also has several other kits that focus on engineering, physics, paleontology, storytelling, geology, and more for every budding scientist.
More About Air-Walker
A robot that defies gravity?! That’s what you get with Air-Walker, a four-legged bot that uses an ingenious system of suction cups and pumps to crawl along smooth, vertical surfaces like windows. A 24-page, full-color guide to helps you understand exactly how to build your robot.
You can also build four other models with the same components and learn how suction and mechanical devices can be used in different real-world applications. A vacuum-suction machine sticks to and lifts flat panels, while a robot with just two suction cups rotates around a central pivot point. This hands-on construction kit brings engineering and physics to life as it demonstrates the power of air pressure at work.
Here’s a trailer showing the product.
The Air-Walker is recommended for ages 8 and up and has a MSRP of $39.95.
