The Dragon Bank assists parents in teaching their children 3 simple but important financial habits that a child as young as 3 or 4 could grasp.

There are three key ways that the Dragon Bank allocates your child’s earnings:

  • Spend - You and your child determine what part of their earnings go to spending on all the cool stuff they want.
  • Save - Together, determine how much of their earnings go to long-term savings that can eventually be used as investments that build wealth.
  • Give - Provide the experience of giving to your children by allowing them to send some of their income to a charity or cause of their choice.

Includes Dragon Bank, V.I.P. Dragon Club Card, and Dragon Bank Manual.

Dragon Bank measures approximately 8" long x 6" wide x 7" tall.

FREE Larva with 2 HexBug purchases
Ages 8 and up

Ever wanted to design your own Hexbug? Now kids can do just that with VEX Robotics! The core of this simple, flexible product line is the VEX IQ system used in STEM programs and elementary and middle school robotics competitions around the world.

The build-it-yourself line of VEX Robotics kits fosters creative STEM learning through hands-on play by allowing children to construct their very own jumbo-sized HEXBUG and customize its programming. With VEX Robotics, kids as young as 8 can jump right in and snap these colourful robots together using the intuitive, tool-less components.

To construct the VEX Robotics Spider, young innovators start by building the drive column, and then work to attach the six orange legs. Once the base and the legs are in place, it’s time to bring the spider to life by attaching the motors, distance sensor, LED module and brain using snap connectors. Once the brain and motors are attached and wired up, the final steps include adding on the bright orange body pieces that give the robot its flair, making it look like a Hexbug Spider!

To program the robotic spider, kids simply flip a series of switches on the robot’s brain, allowing for quick experimentation with different modes to determine how the spider reacts when the sensors are activated. There are 64 different programming options from which to choose! There are three drive modes: Standard Driver Mode where the kid drives the robot using the remote control, Autonomous Mode where the robot navigates itself using its sensors, and “Crazy” Autonomous that simulates the real, random wandering nature of a living creature!

Set includes more than 350 snap together pieces.

Built product measures approximately 11.5” long x 11.5” wide x 11” tall.

Requires 3 AA batteries and one 9 volt battery (NOT INCLUDED).

By Jessica Prescott

Learn how to play chess, the world’s most popular board game! It’s easy to learn, and anyone can play it. Jessica Prescott teaches you how you can get good at it and start winning. Improve your skills through 35 fun activities. This isn’t just a textbook about the rules of the game! Why not have a game of Pawn Football (pawns line up at their starting rank and race to the other side), or do the Queen Dance (make a checkmate using only a queen and king)? Try Scholar’s Mate: the four-move checkmate every beginner needs to know, and when you’re really good, play Bughouse, a crazy four-person game with two chess sets. All the activities have clear, colorful illustrations so you can see exactly where pieces should be on the chessboard. There are also helpful hints and tips throughout, and if you’ve ever forgotten how a piece moves or need to brush up on a rule, look at the Starting Out section for a reminder.

Softcover book containing 128 pages.

With VEX Robotics, kids as young as 8 can jump right in and snap these colorful robots together using the intuitive, tool-less components.

To create the VEX Robotics Strandbeast, young innovators start by constructing each half of the base and attaching a motor to both sides. Once the base system and the eight legs are in place, it’s time to bring the strandbeast to life by wiring the brain to the LED module, distance sensors, and motors using snap connectors, and then attaching the brain to the body. Once the brain and motors are attached and wired up, the final steps include adding on the bright blue leg pieces that illustrate this complex robot’s graceful, smooth-walking stride.

To program the robotic strandbeast, kids simply flip a series of switches on the robot’s brain, allowing for quick experimentation with different modes to determine how it reacts when the sensors are activated. There are 64 different programming options from which to choose! There are three drive modes: Standard Driver Mode where the kid drives the robot using the remote control, Autonomous Mode where the robot navigates itself using its sensors, and “Crazy” Autonomous mode that simulates the real, random wandering nature of a living creature!
