{Giveaway} Thames and Kosmos Science Set

May 30, 2011

Happy Memorial Day!  Many, many thanks for all our servicemen and women do for our country.  We remember and honor all of those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our safety. There are no words for our gratitude.

*I never know quite how to make the transition from serious thought to a happy Monday Giveaway, but here it goes…*

It’s that time of year to stock-pile (and hide away) things for your adorable to do during those rainy summer days.

(If you can sneak a little education in there too, you get extra brownie points.)

That’s why you’ll love this Thames & Kosmos Air + Water Power Science Set:

Meant for adorables aged 8 and up – but really for younger too with a little help – this set has enough parts and pieces for an unlimited amount of engrossed creative ingenuity.

This brilliant kit allows your adorable to build two different air-and-water-powered systems: the water-jet propelled cars and the hydro-pneumo (which simply means air pressure and water pressure) powered engines. The hydro-pneumo system uses a self-contained air-and-water turbine system as a motor.  How cool is that??

The 48-page booklet walks your adorable step-by-step through the creation of 15 models including a truck, excavator, radar car, tank, antique car, helicopter, motorbike, backhoe, rocket car, forklift, roadster, propeller plane, grinder, and cutting machine.  Imagine your adorables (or your adorable and a friend, who is probably also adorable) creating some really great machines!

And you can win one…


One lucky, lucky winner can win a Thames and Kosmos Air+Water Powerset($35) simply by leaving a comment by Friday, June 3rd.  I’ll choose the winner using and announce it on Saturday.
