    My daughter picked this kit out with her Christmas gift card. We had been pondering science fair ideas & thought that hydraulics might be fun. We figured this could be a way to get our toes wet.

    Conceptually, this kit is great! You can choose one of three machines to assemble, and when put together they operate using a series of tubes and syringes. The directions are clear and easy enough to understand.

    Unfortunately it doesn't work out as well in practice. The pieces don't snap together securely, so you are fighting an uphill battle trying to keep the parts you already put together from falling off while you add the next. It got to the point that my daughter was too frustrated and I had to step in and help, even though she understood the "how" of the task at hand. Even when you get it all set up, a couple times of moving the crane with the hydraulics proved to be too much, and parts started to come apart.

    So I would give it 4 stars for ideas and 2 for execution.

    Not worth buying

    By Lisa

    from Ohio

    Comments about Toys R Us 1001325 Edu Science Know How? 3-in-1 Hydraulic Set:

    Very difficult for an 8 year old to assemble.. The pieces keep coming out.. And finally when you try to fix the parts the pieces break very easily including the syringe... No extra parts given in the kit too.. A big 'No No' to this product ...

        Comments about Toys R Us 1001325 Edu Science Know How? 3-in-1 Hydraulic Set:

        My 8 year old son had to be helped extensively to put this together, and even with an adult could not attach the hoses properly. It was educational to see the water operating the equipment, and to see the effect that the length of hoses had on the amount of movement, but actual play value was limited. It's nice that there is more than one model that can be built, in that the building is the main activity.

          An exercise in frustration

          • None

          Cons

          • Flimsy
          • Poor Design

          Best Uses

            Comments about Toys R Us 1001325 Edu Science Know How? 3-in-1 Hydraulic Set:

            Worst instructions ever. The photos are *tiny*, so it's difficult to tell what goes where. My favorite was the caption under the 1.25" x .75" picture of the entire assembled grabber that said to install the pumps "as shown". Get your magnifying glass!

            Some of the parts, like the grabber arm, snap together pretty firmly. Great, it'll hold together well, right? Yes, if you didn't then have to unsnap it again after you've assembled it in order to get the water pumps on. The water pumps (like a syringe) attach with these little clips that you slide onto them. They are very snug and difficult to get into the right position to attach to the grabber.

            They use these tiny caps (about the size of a 1x1 round LEGO plate) to hold some parts together. The grabber bucket uses these caps, and it must have come apart a dozen times while I assembled the whole thing. Also, nothing secures the entire grabber arm to the frame, it uses four little pegs that just sit in holes so the arm comes out very easily.

                  Right out of the box, had difficulty getting the wheels onto the base. Haven't gotten much further than that. Wouldn't buy another one.

                      The direction are vague, the illustration are too small and the parts do not fit well together. After a whole afternoon spent assembling the toy, it only barely worked. I think I can do a better job by hitting a hobby shop and building it ourselves.
