There are many toys for both children and adults that use physics in a fun and interesting way. You have classics such as marble run and all time movement technique. But there are also unique designs such as a mini steam locomotive and a roller coaster.
These are not only toys but it will only be fun. It also helps in generating interest in the physics of children. So without further ado, here are 9 of our favorite physics-based toys.
Build-it-Yourself Marble Run: ROKR Marble Run
At the end of the day Marble Run was simply a display of gravity and movement. Whether it is fun for both adults and children.
The ROKR kit is made of wood and you have to assemble it yourself. Marble goes through sandals, escalators, funnels, and twisted paths .ROKR, the aesthetics of the gear feel great using it and makes the whole kit welcome in any office.
Brilliant Glitter: National Geographic Glitter Marble Run
This marble run is more targeted at children or children’s hearts. They are large, interchangeable and glow in the dark.
Over 60 “small” sets, but you can buy a “medium” set of 120 if you want something more complex. There is also an expansion pack that comes with additional action pieces. (Eg Luprang and Wheels)
Thermal Office Finishing: Sunitech Sterling Motor
Suitable for the office, the actual Stirling motor is a heat-powered engine invented in the early 1800s.
Like the real-world counterpart, this micro model is exposed to heat. (For example, from a hot plate or steamed coffee cup), its wheels will spin.
Having this engine as a desk toy is a good way to show your interest in mechanical engineering, and it looks good.
You have a choice between different models, the one pictured above is the LT001, but you can choose from both the DWCL-01 and the Z1, both of which work similarly to the LT001 but look different.
Minimalist Motion: Fortune Products Inc. The Swinging Sticks
One can stay in a room with enchanted movements to watch toys moving continuously.
Swinging sticks are a great example of this. They look cool in motion, have a simple, modern design and are made of solid aluminum. Just use four AA batteries, a great decoration for your room.
Tiny Unicycleist: Sunitech Unicycle Weightlifter
This is a normal table toy. But it is for good reason. Unicycle weightlifters move in a unique way that makes it interesting to watch. This is an all metal from Sunitech, which ensures that it does not crash easily.
You have a few more models to choose from, the picture above is the WJ143 and the other two are the WJ020, which is a unicycle weightlifter but with a slightly different design, and the WJ066, which replaces the unicyclist with a smaller aircraft.
Physics-Based Fidgeting: SameSolar Kinetic Desk Toy
This toy not only looks cool, but can also be used as a fidget toy. Many people love to buy a stressful toy when they play with stress or boredom, and like a fidget toy, the smooth motion of this toy can help you relax.
Just place it on a flat surface, spin, and watch as the spiral groove rolls around the arc of the toy (the amisolar on the product page has a video of the toy in action, so you can watch it for yourself before purchasing ). There is a bonus made of solid aluminum, so it weighs well in the hand.
Make It Big: Lego Maker Expert Roller Coaster
The roller coaster is one of the best ways we use physics today, and now you can catch that excitement in a Lego set. The finished build is not small because it is over 20 inches long and 34 inches wide, but takes advantage of that space. You will see how crowded the roller coaster tracks are, which makes the trolleys more interesting to watch.
You use a normal hand crank to move the caster up a steep slope. But after that, gravity and speed took over. The build set is very good with 11 mini figs and small shops that can be built around costars.
Creative Challenge: Thinkfun Roller Coaster Challenge
Like a Lego set, Thinkfoon’s Roller Coaster Challenge truncates fun real-life roller coaster physics, small enough to fit on a table. The set comes in a variety of pieces, including ramps, loops, and threads, allowing for great creative freedom when designing coaster.
Thinkfoon wants to promote smart and strategic thinking in the minds of children with this kit, the kit includes 40 challenge cards to do just that.
