Fischertechnik Advanced Universal 4 was designed for the family looking for a hands-on way to introduce their child to an overview of mechanical construction. The 40 models - including vehicles with steering, transport helicopter, and airplane merry-go-round - are among the most realistic available.
Unlike familiar construction toys, these Fischertechnik models stay together until you take them apart. Indeed, with nearly 500 colorful, injection-molded pieces in Fischertechnik Advanced Universal 4, your child can continue to create their own innovations and bring them to life with the included belt drives, crank handles, cable winches, and gears.
The wordless step-by-step manual means that even reluctant readers will not miss out. Includes the rare Fischertechnik action figure. Fischertechnik kits teach basic technical knowledge and promote spatial thinking abilities, logical thinking skills, imagination, and creativity.
For years Fischertechnik manufactured world-renowned components intended for engineering companies who built prototypes of factory installations.
Those tabletop factory replicas realistically and cost-effectively allowed the engineers to plan, program, develop, and test industrial controls and debug their designs. They even train personnel who would operate the new equipment with these models. Because such tasks demanded precision, the Fischertechnik parts were fabricated with quality and realism.
One Christmas (in 1964), Fischertechnik pulled together an assortment of its components and presented child-friendly modeling kits to engineers and industrial clients. The gifts were so popular that in 1965, Fischertechnik introduced its first building set in Germany.
Over the years, institutions that promote pre-engineering courses for middle and high-school students have used Fischertechnik components in 1,300 schools across the states. Equally valuable in a homeschool curriculum, Fischertechnik allows children to learn technology using the most realistic parts currently available.
Highly regarded by engineers, the ready-to-assemble, compact training models mimic real-life applications and are suitable for education, training, and industry. Engineered to scientific precision and manufactured using high-strength nylon, plastic, and steel, the unique design of these components results in the most durable and reliable connections.
The versatile Fischertechnik basic building block is the basis for all Fischertechnik construction sets. This block's channel-and-groove design allows your engineer to add parts and build on all six sides.
All Fischertechnik construction kits are compatible. Comprehensive, easy-to-understand assembly instructions are included in every construction set.
”As the mother of 2 girls, I know that placing a heavy emphasis on STEAM activities is crucial... I was so excited to get the opportunity to bring this kit into our home and let my girls get their hands on it."
