8 Years

We love eight-year-olds! They’re just the right age for all kinds of fun. They still love the pretend play they’ve been enjoying for years, yet they’re also ready to move ahead into more advanced toys and learning. All of these toys and activities will appeal to their natural sense of fun and wonder.

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.

Rain, rain, go away . . . actually, after seeing this activity book, kids will say: Rain, rain, please STAY! It’s so chock-full of fun things that it won’t matter what the weather is like. Children will never be bored when they can create a drawing of what a rooster might look like as a robot, finish silly sentences, and solve mini-crosswords. Or maybe they’ll lose their marbles playing the "Lost Your Marbles?" word search game.

Budding fashionistas can design a t-shirt on the page (and maybe a real one), while future rock ‘n’ roll stars can pick the perfect band name by picking from a word list or by randomly choosing phrases from the dictionary. A few games are meant for two—just in case a friend’s around. With tongue twisters to make you snort, "off with its head" fill-ins (where you chop off the first letter), and classic riddles and conundrums, you won’t care how hard it pours!

Softcover containing 144 pages.

Learn about renewable resources while you build a wind-powered generator to energize your electric vehicle and charge your rechargeable batteries!

The wind spins the turbine, which turns an electric generator, which in turn charges your rechargeable AA batteries (not included). You can then use those wind-charged batteries to power the model vehicles you build. The six models include a glider, sail car, jet car, tractor, race car, or tricycle.

This kit includes two styles of wind turbine blades and a gearbox with three different gear ratios for experiments. You can adjust the angle and number of wind turbine blades to make best use of the wind, to make the LED light up brightly, and to charge the rechargeable battery as fast as possible.

A great gift for young scientists who are ready for a hands-on way of learning about wind energy!

Explore this amazing, free source of renewable energy and store the electricity you generate for use in practical applications!

Requires 1 rechargable AA battery (not included.)
