Kids First Boat Engineer
What It Is

The First Kids Boat Engineer Kit is a 52 piece building kit. This kit also includes a book that tells a very exciting story. The story is about Huxley and Remus who built a robotic fish that goes haywire and swims off. The pair builds a rowboat to catch the fish but they quickly find that the rowboat is too slow, so they have to build a faster boat. When they chase the fish out into the ocean they need a bigger boat to keep up with the waves. Each adventure teaches something new about building boats and how they work. There are a total of 10 boats featured in the book and kids are given simple instructions to build as they go. You can build a sailboat, speedboat, tugboat, catamaran, hydroplane and more. This book encourages kids to read the very exciting story, and come up with a creative build to help problem solve.
