International Playthings: mic-o-mic Construction Kits Review {Giveaway}

mic-o-mic tractor and jet kits

mic-o-mic is an educational designer toy that targets the individual skills and abilities of children. They offer construction kits that contain individual parts that can be connected by pins and clips to create aircrafts, motor vehicles, ships and more.

I recently had a chance to received a couple of mic-o-mic kits from International Playthings to review. We received their mic-o-mic Small Jet Plane kit and their Medium Tractor kit.

The Jet Plane Kit has 22 parts, 14 clips, 28 pins and an assembly tool, spare clips and pins are also included. This set is recommend for children 5+ years.

The Medium Tractor Kit has 52 parts, 11 clips, 21 pins and an assembly tool, spare clips and pins are also available. This set is recommended for children 6+ as it’s more advanced. Both sets are not recommend for children younger than 3 years of age because they contain small parts.

I started with the Tractor Kit and I can see why this kit is intermediate level. These kits don’t have step by step instructions but instead a series of diagrams that show you where each piece goes.

My almost three-year-old enjoyed watching and helping put the kit together. We started together and I finished while he took his afternoon nap. He was delighted when he woke up to see the finished Tractor model.

After nap time while I made dinner him and his Dad built the Jet Plane Kit together. He was again helping pass the pieces and happy to be building the Jet model.  After they finished he picked up the both the Jet and the Tractor and started playing with them.

I really like that these kits encourage children and parents to play together and the pieces are manufactured from materials that are free of harmful substances. I also like that they are educational and fun. I can see how older children would love spending time constructing and playing with the mic-o-mic models.
