Klutz Maker Lab Air Blast Cannon

Ages: 8 and upManufacturer: Klutz

This build and play kit has kids assembling a cannon that uses air power to launch foam darts at targets over ten feet away; it may even launch a few engineering careers.

Using color coded syringes and tubing that pump air into the cannon, kids then pull the lever to blast the darts at their selected target. To familiarize the builder with the kit, the instructions have kids running experiments with the parts as they build. Kids get step by step illustrated lessons that explain the basic how’s and why’s of the cannon’s operation. Target games, lessons about air pressure and the history of pneumatics round out the instruction booklet.

Testers tagged this toy as much fun to build as it is to play with.
