This colorful Kids First Aircraft Engineer kit and storybook provides an interactive and engaging way to teach simple engineering concepts to preschool-age kids.

Start by reading an amusing, beautifully illustrated, 32-page story about Ty and Karlie Omega, two inquisitive kids who are on a trip with their parents. Along the way, the kids encounter people and scenarios that cause them to build various flying machines to help people, solve problems and complete tasks. As you follow the story, you can build models of the 10 vehicles in the story. Large, colorful plastic building pieces make it easy for small hands to put the models together.

The kids start out by building a passenger jet to bring their family to a tropical island. After they arrive, they construct a helicopter to help some scientists studying sea turtles reach a remote island, and then a seaplane to bring them back. As they continue along their trip, they also build a biplane, space shuttle, prop plane, hang glider, supersonic jet, and other airplanes to help their friends out. From each humorous segment of their silly adventure, the kids learn something new and collect a funny souvenir.
