Smartivity Pinball Machine
This building kit for children 8 and up is perfect for the child who’s always wondering how things work!

The detailed instructional guide provides the user with clear directions for assembling this pinball machine while introducing children to the concepts of structural design, mechanics, and levers as they build their own fully-functional pinball game. While assembly may require some assistance from parents depending on the child's age and abilities, the completed machine is easy to use and will provide children with a new game to play on their own or with others. The machine continually challenges users to consider mechanical and physics concepts through play! - C.R. Johnson, Purdue Reviewer
