Little Dipper

Take your imagination on a DIY ride full of dips, turns, and daredevil demonstrations of physics and engineering with this laser-cut wood roller coaster kit. With no special tools (just household white glue), more than 30 Baltic birch pieces come together to make a mini marble coaster. Powered by a hand crank, the DIY thrill ride runs on kid power instead of batteries, and includes engaging instructions in graphic novel form to make building it half the fun. This playful kinetic sculpture makes a great gift for tinkerers young and old. Ages 9+. Designed by Adam Hocherman; made in Beverly, Massachusetts.

WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts. Not for children under 3 years.

Entrepreneur and product designer Adam Hocherman is an unsung hero to parents of toddlers. One of his most beloved products is a clock and night light that helps kids stay in bed longer so parents can get some sleep. He began designing housewares, but ultimately specialized in electronic toys, clocks, and night lights. Today, he's focused on a unique venture that introduces STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) concepts to children and adults using natural wood, American-made marble machine kits. Adam lives North of Boston with his wife and two little daughters (who are both headed for careers in engineering). In his rare moments of down time, he enjoys tinkering with his vintage Williams Cyclone pinball machine.
