The Thames and Kosmos kits are highly popular with DS7. He especially likes the Solar Physics and Physics Workshop kits. These combine a bit of building, lots of gears and some simple electricity.


Erector sets are another hit, although the small screws may have been too hard for him to manipulate at 5 years old. It would depend on how good a young child's fine motor skills are and how chubby their fingers are, I would think!
