Thames & Kosmos bolsters its science kits lines with Terrain Walkers and Kids First Coding & Robotics

Thames & Kosmos has bolstered its popular range of Science Kits, welcoming the Terrain Walkers to its best-selling Engineering Makerspace brand, and the arrival of the Kids First Coding & Robotics lines.

“The Terrain Walkers are the latest addition to our immensely popular Engineering Makerspace range,” said Jo Drage, sales director, Thames & Kosmos UK.

“This fantastic new arrival enables children to learn about advanced gear technology and makes the perfect addition to any budding physicists portfolio, while offering the high quality you are used to with our products.”

The Terrain Walkers retail at £24.50 and let kids get hands-on with physics and engineering by constructing eight walking machines. Children can explore the workings of gear trains, linkages, and intermittent gears as they discover how these elements work together to create complex walking devices.

Meanwhile, Thames & Kosmos has also welcomed the addition of its Kids First Coding & Robotics challenge pack, a kit aimed at children aged four to eight.

“With this kit, budding computer enthusiasts will be able to let their imagination run wild and add even more robotic creations to Sammy’s world, the cute little jam sandwich from our Kids First Coding and Robotics kit, a Parents’ Choice Gold Award winner and favourite among parents of early years children,” said Drage.

“At this time of year, high ticket ranges are climbing in popularity again, and The Coding & Robotics kit (retailing at £100) can be the perfect Christmas gift from granny, while the challenge pack will make a great stocking filler at £22.50.”

In addition to the new arrivals, Thames & Kosmos UK is also restocking its popular Architectural Engineering kits.

“When we showed off this kit for the first time at London Toy fair it certainly impressed, in particular some of the structures you can create – The London Eye being a favourite. We’ve had steady demand ever since, which just keeps growing,” said Drage.

Budding structural engineers get to build their foundation knowledge in architectural design with a STEM experiment kit that explores the engineering principles behind planning and developing buildings and structures. GCSE students of construction and engineering subjects will find the detailed instructions and step-by-step guide extremely valuable when putting together their models.

“Parents and grandparents alike will appreciate the extraordinary quality of this kit, which is why Thames and Kosmos have such a loyal customer base,” concluded Drage.
