- Modelled on a real-life mountain funicular, this fantastic cable car will travel across the room, or from tree to tree at a gentle pace or go full speed down into the valley! Hours of fun indoors or out. Assembly 10 years, play from 5 years. Comes with 2 x 20m of string. The Big Cable Car Kit consists of a gondola that you and your child/children put together. A cable string is supplied that will need to be fixed to 2 points. You decide where! Fixing: The cable (string) is tied to 2 points; one at each fixed stationary point so that there is a slope between them. Operation: The pulling string is attached to the gondola and then to the higher of the 2 points of the cable string. Pulling the pulling string will cause the gondola to ride up to the highest point. Letting go of the pulling string will cause the gondola to travel down to the lowest point. The gradient of incline of the cable will decide the speed at which the cable car travels! This is the educational and fun aspect of this kit. Children will learn from experimenting. How fast can the make the cable car go? Note: This is the full kit that includes 2 Cable Cars and Cable Car Station.
These fantastic exploration kits by German toymakers Kraul are designed to have children construct their own moving vehicles and then explore, through play, the mechanics and technology behind them. Building one requires skill but it's only made complete when a healthy dose of imagination and play is added. Each set comes with building materials and complete instructions. Some adult supervision may be required.
