Recommended for kids ages 7 and up, this activity kit comes with a 64-page hardcover book that is packed with fun and strange facts about cars, including the science behind them. The set also comes with 124 pieces that kids can use to create and customize 10 cars, as well as a buildable, 3-foot chipboard racetrack to race them on.
