Mech-a-Blocks introduces mechanical concepts to young children. They learn about structures and mechanisms, inputs and outputs, levers, direction and amount of motion. They learn through the mechanical devices they designs and build. “Mech-a-Blocks” are reconfigurable mechanical building blocks. Unlike ordinary blocks (which are designed for making structures), children can use Mech-a-Blocks to create mechanisms as well as structures.
