Animate an orchestra from just connectors and straws. This kit comes as music to the ears of hobby enthusiasts who can give expression to their innovative ideas. It comprises a set of ingenious connectors and brightly coloured, durable plastic straws to aid in creative building of a multitude of characters. While creating these figures, kids get an eye-hand co-ordination work-out and learn the basic principles of balance and symmetry. It is a fantastic learning aid for understanding shape concepts and translating them to a 3rd dimension. The connectors allow 2 modes of connectivity across the protruding arms - for 1 to 8 straws and through the connector cavity for 1 single straw. This unique connectivity opens up myriad possibilities allowing the kid to experiment extensively. The straws can also be cut to various lengths, opening up even more interesting avenues.
