A LEGO kit you dreamt of when a child is now available to buy.
Kitables, a Colorado-based company that specializes in designing and selling kits for DIY projects, makes you an offer you simply can’t refuse. A real flying machine made of LEGO blocks: it is really a dream come true.
Some thirty minutes of assembling, gluing and soldering (younger kids will have to ask their dads – or moms who have a way with a soldering iron – for help) will get you a fully operational quadcopter.
Equipped with LEDs which make flights in the dark even more stunning, the drone can be charged with USB and accumulates enough power to stay in the air for as long as 15 minutes. A moderate price of $69 makes this toy a real bargain.
As the kit proved to be a huge success, the designer came with a smaller-scale model. Put on Kickstarter in January 2017, it managed to attract nearly $40,000 in mere weeks: now you can buy it from the company’s web-site for as little as $50. However, a smaller battery size means that you will have to put up with a shorter flight time: you can’t have your cake and eat it too.
Those captivated by quadcopters and drones can also get their hands on the company’s paper quadcopter ($69) and a portable solar USB charger (you can also plug it into a wall outlet and use as a power bank) that might come in handy if you are planning long outdoor flying sessions.
So, if you are looking for the perfect gift for your kid, you’ve found it. Not only do these kits entertain, they also help to develop your child’s DYI skills and arouse their interest in science.
Off we go!
