Balloon car toy: The balloon inside the racer car inflates by blowing into the mouth piece, then let go and sit back and watch as the car is propelled along by the air being released from the inflated balloon. A fun great way to introduce cause and effect, and great for tracking skills, oral exercise, and to open scientific discussions. This activity gives a learning of how the deflation of balloon gives a forward force for moving the car, it also helps to understand how the wheels can be attached to the axel for the movement of the car. Turn a pile of trash into a toy car—and watch it go! In this activity you will learn some physics concepts and use recycled materials to build a toy car that is propelled by a balloon. You can even find a friend, build two cars and race them against each other. Another way to think about the balloon’s movement is to use Newton’s third law of motion: For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
DIY racing car F1 Air power should be the first STEM toy for your child. The toy is based on Newton’s third law of motion – For every action, there is equal and opposite reaction.
The battery powered fan pushes the air and the car moves in the opposite direction.
Age Range: 6 years old and above
A pack of 5 is rightly priced as a Christmas gift.
F1 racing cars once assembled works on Newton’s third law of motion : For every action there is equal and opposite reaction. When the fan rotates at high speed it pushes the air in the opposite direction of the car’s motion. The air pushes the car in the front direction thus giving ‘motion’ to the F1 racing car.
