Youthful Engineering

Posted on August 23, 2018

In an attempt to bring engineering to children that doesn’t involve phones and video games, Infento had the idea of using of life-sized Lego-like parts to build modular bikes and scooters. The Amsterdam-based company’s customizable vehicle kits include interchangeable parts that are easy to assemble so that kids can build a tricycle one day, a scooter the next, a bicycle after that, and even motorized vehicles like go-karts (with a separately sold motor). There are numerous kits to choose from, including the Master Creator Kit, Big Snow Kit, and Whizz Kit, to name a few. Users merely need one kit and a single hex key to create a number of different rides. Infento creations are designed to evolve with the child from toddlerhood well into their teens. Prices vary depending on kit.   Ryan Thomas
