Making it easy to make good stuff
Make it easy for your child to make good stuff with our hands-on kits.
We've started making videos to help you see what your kids can make! Our first one is an instructional video to help you make your Wooden Torch Kit.
Choose your kit.
This is the hardest bit. Will the kids want to make a Wooden Torch, DIY Bluetooth Speakers or a cute Buzzy Gecko?
Or invent their own thing with our soon to be released Tinker Tiles?
Decorate It Your Way

Real Learning, Real Skills
100% Reuseable, Recyclable, Compostable Packaging

Enjoy making the Speaker with them, cheer them on as they finish the Wooden Torch, work out ways to make the Buzzy Gecko bounce higher!
In a world full of complicated choices and attempting to do the best thing for your child, you know they made something good. They're learning hands-on. The packaging has been reused or composted - so there's no plastic aftertaste.
Introduce your child to a hopeful and meaningful future in science and invention. Why not start today?
BLUETOOTH SPEAKER KIT
"He was thrilled to successfully build it himself and I was thrilled to see how much learning was happening.
It looks so stylish - 5 stars!"
"I'm enjoying reading your emails, they are full of good ideas - particularly for school aged kids (as mine are). Keep it up!"
WOODEN TORCH KIT
"High quality product, made in New Zealand, great service and looking forward to seeing the new products coming up."
CHRISTMAS SPARKLE TREE
"...as a homeschool Mum I’ve tried a lot of products like this! It was just the right amount of challenging with jobs I could get my 10 and 7 year old to do.
They are so impressed with themselves that they “made a lamp with stars”. Amazingly sturdy design, great instructions and a gift that is useful, educational and delightful."

CHRISTMAS SPARKLE TREE
"Great hands on learning opportunity for our kids! We love our Sparkle Tree that our kids built themselves."
GET GIRLS INTO STEM
"I nabbed a torch for my niece for her birthday and she loved it. When asked what she wanted for Christmas she said more things like that!"
