Holiday Gift Guide Day 29 - Weird & Wacky Contraption Lab Review and Giveaway

Holiday Gift Guide Day 29 - Weird & Wacky Contraption Lab

SmartLab Toys is a great company that focuses on toys that are not only fun, but can teach kids at the same time. A great toy they have available this holiday season is the Weird & Wacky Contraption Lab. It really is a perfect gift for someone that likes to build.

The Weird & Wacky Contraption Lab is a little reminiscent of "marble run" type toys in that it comes with different pieces that are used to create different paths for a marble. However, rather than stack the pieces together, they attach to a tall board.

This makes it possible for many more different contraptions and paths for the ball to take. It also comes with a toy cannon and "stunt pig" that be used for a grand finale. It could even be used to create two competing paths. First one to launch the pig wins!

With all the different parts and virtually unlimited number of contraptions that could be built, it might seem like it could be difficult for kids to pick up and start playing. Luckily, the Lab also comes with an instruction sheet that includes not only sample contraptions, but also teaches principles of gravity, velocity, and momentum that kids can see in action as they play. Weird & Wacky Contraption Lab is a lot of fun and sure to get your kids' brains working.

To Buy - Standing over two feet tall, the Weird & Wacky Contraption Lab has 60 mix-and-match pieces to build an unlimited amount of contraptions. Kids can dream up crazy courses, then build and test them using this easy-to-construct Velcro®-like system. Kids construct countless contraption designs while they learn how to predict the outcome of each. It's available for $39.99 at Smartlabtoys, and other select retailers.
