This awesome Woodmobiel is unlike anything I’ve ever seen – so incredibly engaging for the engineer child who loves to build and learn with his or her hands. The kit contains pre-drilled, untreated pine posts, and wheels, nuts, bolts, and tools. Accompanying instructions tell little builders how to assemble 20 different wooden playtoys, including a racecar, tricycle, and plane.

Recommended for children five years and older, this set still requires parent participation. It’s a bit pricey at $300, but would fill hours and hours for a child curious about inventing.
