Learning Resources STEM Challenge Set, Crashapult Catapult is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun STEM Challenge for Variety of Ages I love the STEM challenge products offered by Learning Resources, and this set is no exception. My favorite aspect of this set is that it coordinates with the Wacky Wheels and Pendulonium Sets. My child is 10 years old, and he definitely loves the added challenge of combining sets. There are a variety of challenges provided in the simple, easy-to-follow instructions. After children have mastered those, they are encouraged to create their own challenges. I LOVE that. The best learning occurs when children can explore and discover on their own, and this set encourages them to do just that. I highly recommend it. I received this toy as a part of an incentivized review program.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great STEM product This was great for my son to play with and try to figure out what angles work and will not work from the concept of the game. It made him think differently. He really enjoyed throwing the balls through the hoop. Great way to introduce stem into his educational learning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My boys loved playing with this! From the minute we started playing, the boys were laughing and having fun! They didn't even realize that they were learning while they were playing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soooo many activities! Options are endless We decided yo put this together one cold weekend afternoon for something to do as a family. My two fourteen year olds and my four year old and I played with it for several hours. It was easy to put together, seems very durable and every one enjoyed it. I like that it came with two balls since my four year old has a hard time sharing so she just kept one and we played with the other one. Love that they are able to learn through play without even realizing it! Would recommend this engaging toy for a wide range of kids and adults.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best problem thinking game ever! I received the Crashapult STEM challenge toy for being a part of a review program. My kids are ages 4 and 6 so this is the perfect age to get those little minds thinking! It comes in a nice sturdy box with a view of everything that is included in the box. I am easily able to store everything in the box for future use and the box shape fits perfectly with our other game/building boxes. Just from the front picture you can tell it's going to be fun! The instructions are an accordion guide to different ways to set up the kit for some beginner ideas. There are no words, just pictures so the kids can easily follow along. I am planning on laminating the cards so they will last a long time. There is a sticker sheet to place some stickers on the pieces but that wasn't hard to do at all. The pieces themselves are very durable with a bright green and orange color. The bright colors make it enticing for my kids. I don't feel there will be any problem with the pieces breaking. The green ring is bendable but I can bend it a lot and still keeps its shape. I LOVE the fact it comes with 2 balls so my kids aren't fighting over the ball and can take turns quickly. So far my kids have spend a lot of time playing with this toy. I'm so glad to see them having fun while also using their head to figure out how hard they need to hit the catapult and setting the distance of the funnel. I have already seen them make up their own ideas! This is fun for adults too! Why not invite some adult friends over for a game night! I would definitely recommend this toy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Endless play options for this fun game! This is such a fun game! It says ages 5+ but my almost 3.5 year loved this game! I love games where my kids are learning without realizing it because they are having so much fun and this is one of those fun and educational games! There are so many different ways to set up and play this game so you can adjust it based on the ages of your kids. Even adults will love this! My husband, daughter and I loved playing this game together while baby sister was napping! I really like that my daughter is already learning about physics without even realizing it! The activity guide is very helpful with some good starting challenges but really this game is so customizable so you and/or your child can invent your own obstacle course. I love how all the pieces can fit in the box for storage. I love that this game will be played with for years to come as there isn't just one way to play it! Definitely will be a fun present to give to other kids for birthday presents, Christmas gifts, etc.
