Eitech® Metal Construction Sets Review

Eitech® Metal Construction Sets are made in Germany and are considered one of the world’s best metal building and construction sets. Eitech’s® superior line allows children to explore gears and metal, solar power and engineering with metal. I really appreciate that Eitech® has the highest standards for safety and quality for all of their product line.

When selecting the right products for my children, I also liked that Eitech® has beginner, basic, classic and exclusive levels so that you find the right project for your child’s ability and/or age level. My son, who is five, really enjoyed building this Eitech® Beginner Helicopter Construction Set. This set is challenging in a good way and my son had such a sense of pride when it was built that he was jumping up and down and flying the helicopter around the house. This set had large plastic parts and easy step by step illustrated instructions. I thought that I would have to really supervise this project but surprisingly my son wanted to do it on his own and only asked for help a few times.

For children ages 8 and up, I would like to recommend the Eitech® Classic R/C Off-Road Vehicle Construction Set. Instead of a pre-built R/C imagine the sense of pride and accomplishment a child would have building his own R/C and then getting to see it work in action. This set is made of the highest quality steel and includes a charger, nine volt battery and rechargeable batteries. My son is still a bit young to build this but has been gazing longingly and dreaming about this Eitech® R/C Set.

Another great gift option, especially for the eco -conscious child is the Eitech® Solar Powered Multi-Vehicle Construction Set. These sets use functioning solar panels and explore power without generators or batteries. These sets are so versatile too because you can build up to three models with each kit.

To find an Eitech® retailer near you or to explore and learn more about the entire line of fine Eitech® products go to their website.
