Fun For Kids: Construction Car Racing Kit

For the keen mechanic in the family, look no further than the super Construction Racing Car Kit from ThinkGizmos for the ideal toy. It is available online here:

Knowing that having to find batteries etc. for toys once they have been purchased is a pain, ThinkGizmos have provided everything in the box of the Racing Car Kit required to use the toy. This includes batteries, instruction and all parts.

The Construction Car Kit itself includes a massive 30 parts including an electric drill to create and customise your car just the way you like it. This car is also battery powered which provides lights and sounds to make it even more realistic.



As well as the fun of building the car you can add some friendly competition to the building process by racing others in your family to see who can build the Construction Car Kit the fastest.

Once upon a time, cameras could only take 24 photographs at a time. Worse still, the pictures were saved onto something called “film” which had to be taken to the local chemist for “developing”. The chemist would then return your pictures an hour later printed onto glossy paper or sometimes on a weird plastic mini picture frame called a “slide”. These slides now clutter drawers and loft spaces, half-remembered and rarely viewed because the only way to look at them properly is with a huge projector (which seem to be rare as hens teeth now), so in the loft they stay. The Instamatic VFS-002M however is an innovative slide scanner which automatically digitises and imports your retro images onto your computer. Using the correct tray (the VFS-002M supports slides and 35mm and 110mm negatives too), load up your photographic treasures and press the scan button. A few seconds later (one per slide) and all of the pictures are immediately available for printing or emailing from your PC or Mac. The VFS-002 connects to your computer with a USB cable and draws all the power it needs directly helping to reduce desk clutter as you go about your scanning business. The Veho scanner even comes with a copy of Arcsoft’s Media Impressions software which will help eliminate redeye, scratches or exposure accidents (home photography used to be quite an art form) once the picture has been imported. Finally you will be able to do something with those boxes of ancient family photographs, giving you the chance to embarrass your parents for once by posting their finest ’70s hairstyles and fashions for all the world to see on Facebook.
