Playing with Legos or an Erector Set as kids, (and in many cases, adults), the satisfaction one gets from building something is no surprise. Now imagine getting to create something with your kids that becomes something they can actually ride. Infento has launched a Kickstarter for a life size Erector Set of sorts that allows a parent and child to build an assortment of pedal and push powered vehicles for kids from toddler to teenager…. with One. Single. Tool.
So if you’ve ever wanted to be able to experiment with the head angle on your child’s enduro scoot bike, check out Infento’s build kits and get creative!
The first goal of Infento was to develop an Education Kit especially for schools to help give children a technical skill set. They’ve offered thier Education Kit since 2012 in schools in various countries and the enormous positive feedback from children and parents led them to market their construction kits to everyone through their Kickstarter Page. Their kits come in several levels starting at only $249, (Reguarly $299 after the early bird Kickstarter offer) that will suit children ages zero to 5, and some of the more advanced kits will cover the entire age range up to 14 and offer options for snow activities as well.
Infento has an instruction manual that shows you how to build 18 various constructible rides including a walker, scooter, tricycle, bicycle, go-kart, skibock, and more. The modular kit has endless possibilities by letting the child and their guardian get as creative as possible.
Infento’s kits are not only meant to be flexible, but are built to withstand the weight of 2 average adults and include several considerably high tech *to a kid* options including disc brakes, suspension, and a belt drive which is both lower maintenance and safer than a traditional chain and chainring. Scouting around on their Facebook page, there is evidence that they are looking into electric motor options as well.
