Did you know that cars can run on coffee? Do you know the difference between NASCAR and Formula One? Kids can take their love of cars to a whole new level with the LEGO Race Cars set from Klutz.

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.

Builders can follow step-by-step instructions to make the DIY cars and then pit them against each other to see which one is the fastest. This STEM kit also has educational elements to teach kids aerodynamic tips and tricks on how physics come into play with car racing.
