To encourage environmental awareness among the children who enjoy our creative craft products, they have included a wide variety of recycling tips in products that they can use and share with others.
What kind of toys and kits do 4M make?
– Science kits. These generally fit into a few sub-catagories which 4M call KidzLabs, Science Museum and Green Science. Examples of KidzLabs science kits are the type of science experiments that you would do in school – only you can now do them at home too. Just like the Lemon Clock and the extremely popular Volcano Making Kit. Science Museum kits include the doodling robot and Green Science kits tend to either promote renewable energy (like the Solar Mechanics Kit ) or use recycled materials (like the Soda Can Robug )
– Fun Mechanics introduce basic mechanics to children as young as 6. These kits often involve making different types of robots like the brush robot.
– Creativity Kits. Again, they have sub divided there kits into several catagories but the main one is Green Creativity. These kits focus on using recycled materials to make nice toys and gifts and include the Recycled Paper Bead Kit. Other craft kits include their quality knitting, crochet and weaving kits and their Mould and Paint kits ( of which I stock 3 types – Racing Cars, Hand Print and Mermaids)
How much do these 4M kits cost?
Considering the quality of the kits, it’s surprising that most of them cost less than €20 and some even retail for less than €10
What educational value do 4M kits have?
– The Green Science and Green Creativity Kits teach children to be green, about sustainability and the concept of renewable energy.
– The also produce history kits for children like the Dinosaur excavation kits
– They introduce science and mechanics to Primary school aged children.
– The creative kits encourage imagination, fine motor skills and concentration.
