Engino – Academy of STEAM Jr Toys Reviews

Product Tested By Margaret Brennan – Kayden 5 Years

Margaret Awarded The Learning About Vehicles 5/5

I loved the colourful box. A nice size not too big. I think it is a brilliant idea. Kayden has a love of vehicles and loves to be hands on. This was ideal for him. The instructions were easy to follow. Looking at the pictures also gave him an idea of what he was making, although he did need help with the reading of the instructions. Very easy to hold the parts, while some of the parts are small he could manage them all. Kayden managed with help from myself or his siblings to create them all. Kayden managed to assemble the range of vehicles. With some he did need some help but this was a great bonding session with us all. Kayden was so proud of his hard work making them all. He really enjoyed playing with them. Kayden loved the book with pictures, connecting dots, tracing numbers and letter. He is staring to do this in school too. He loved to show his big brother and sister how good he was at doing his letters and numbers too. It was something he could do well and he loved it. Kayden really enjoyed it. He was interested in seeing what he could do with it all and always willing to try and experiment to see what he could make.  After seeing some of the items made with it Kayden started to make his own designs. It definitely encouraged him to think and try different things. This kept him entertained and encouraged him to make things and also a discussion topic with his siblings to see what else he could make. Kayden loved to experiment with the different parts seeing what he could create.it definitely encourages children to try to make different things. This has proved very popular and it is something that has been played with every day since he got it. Kayden loved the fact he could decide what to make. He could look at the pictures or decide to make his own creations. Good quality part and easy to work with when you have tiny fingers. Originally I thought it was expensive but seeing the value Kayden has gotten from this I now think it is great value. I would buy this as a present for family or friends children. It offers great value for the play and educational value. I will definitely look at other things in this range. I think Santa might already have something in mind in this range! I would recommend as it encourages children to think outside the box. Encourages them to try new things too. Great play value and educational too. Children love to experiment and this encourages them to do it. Excellent value for money. Younger children will need support with the instructions. Sturdy toy when made. Great play value. Encourages children to think about what else they can make. Margaret Brennan – Kayden 5 Years

Bright and colourful and very sturdy and well made. My son loves to make things building and learning at the same time was perfect.  Instructions clear and easy to follow.  My son found it easy to build own vehicle with a little help and hold the parts. We built all 5 models shown but he also liked to make up his own models and creations. All built with a little help from mum. He loved to play with them afterwards. He enjoyed doing the little extras.  He loves to draw and colour in so these were perfect for him.  My son loves to learn new things. My son has a wonderful imagination and this was perfect for him to make and create his own designs. This certainly kept my son entertained.  He would play with this every other day.  He loved making the models and creating his own.  The quality is excellent.  Most certainly good value.  This toy is great for getting children to learn as well as getting their imagination going.  I would buy this and I would recommend.  This is a brilliant toy.  Very well made and sturdy.  This is great for getting little imagination working.

Colourful packaging with clear photographs and instructions on the box. Well presented. Excellent concept, teaches children how to build objects using the pieces provided. Instructions were fairly easy to understand but it needed adult supervision and guidance. The parts were easy enough to hold and grip. My son struggled a bit to select the right parts that were needed and as a consequence I needed to build the vehicles myself for him. Together we created all of the vehicles that the set provided. There were some pieces that were too similar as well as too complicated for a 3 year old to master themselves. Once built he enjoyed playing with it.  The colouring pictures and connecting dot, tracing numbers etc. were good as he was able to complete these whilst I was building the vehicles. My son is only 3 and didn’t grasp the concept of building the toy following instructions. However, once I made the vehicle he could see that I had done it myself and enjoyed playing with it. I do believe that for the older child, it helps to encourage problem solving as well as developing designing and innovating skills. This did not keep him entertained during the building stages but he enjoyed playing with it once complete as well as completing the activities in the booklet. He did create his own model using one of the main vehicles as a base.  He did not play with this a huge amount but did alongside his other vehicles and trains.  He really enjoyed playing with the vehicles once built. Reasonable quality – some of the pieces that click into each other lost their “clickiness” within a few days. There is nothing similar on the market so it is hard to judge but for the price I could buy Duplo which is easier for a child to play with. I would buy but for an older child, who would understand how to build it using instructions, and get the most out of it.  I would recommend for an older child.  Lovely concept well thought out but not suitable for young children who would struggle to follow instructions. The quality of the pieces could have been improved for the price it retails at. My son really enjoyed playing with the completed vehicles but I feel he is a little too young to follow instructions on how to build relatively complex vehicles. With guidance from myself we managed to build all the vehicles but this defeated the object of developing skills for children. I would say the concept is excellent, there is nothing on the market to rival it however it would be more suitable for children aged 5+. Sarah Miles – Alex 3 years
