Make with the kids: homemade products for the summer ...

"Little son
to the father came,

and asked the little one:
- What
good
and that such
badly?"
(Vladimir Mayakovsky "What is good and what is bad")

Creativity is around us. The readers of VO liked the previous material on this topic. They wanted to continue and here it is. Straight to summer. To have something to do with children and for children. And let's remember again: no matter how the father talks about his work and the money he earned, the child is unable to appreciate all this. On the other hand, the child will appreciate that even if dad came home from work and “he was tired,” he nevertheless didn’t sit down to watch TV with beer, but did something interesting with him. Appreciate if they built something flying, floating or crawling together. If, having gone to rest on the sea, dad and mom again did not send their child to "play in the sand", but ... helped him to "play in the sand", built together with him a wonderful knight's castle - and not one, but two, and then arranged " the war of the fortresses ”and together they shot them from a homemade catapult. Well, if, together with dad, before the pre-planned trip to the sea on the sand, an original, unlike anything, homemade product was also made, then this will be the best gift of fate for the child. He will never forget this to his father, as, incidentally, to his grandfather too ...

But what are we going to do with you today? Again, everything is the simplest and most accessible, although outwardly very interesting, beautiful and entertaining. We stand on that. And, of course, we use all kinds of household waste: packaging, boxes, in a word - we increase the environmental friendliness of our creativity.

So, perhaps the best place to start is with sand toys. Children love to play with these, but most of them are commonplace. And if so, then all the more it is worth taking care of your own child, so that he has something to develop his brains on.

Now everyone is talking about flying to Mars, even young children now know about it, so why not make your little son a toy wheelchair (that is, without an engine and gearbox!) - the Mars rover "Martian". We will need a plastic box, half a plastic ball from a New Year's toy for the astronaut's cabin, two metal knitting needles for knitting - axes, four corks from the crust from large bottles and many, many thin metal knitting needles for knitting. It is from them that we make "wheels" according to the pattern, which are surprisingly very good on the sand. However, the paws of the crab are also pointed, but for some reason it perfectly moves on it. So here's an example of the correct use of one of the "patents of nature." By the way, he is well versed and takes up negligible space in a suitcase when disassembled.


"Mars rover" Martian "

The second homemade product has a similar design and only part 2 (4 of them are needed) requires rather painstaking work from an adult. This is a spring rover. Also collapsible. Only instead of wheels it has springs bent in the form of a chamomile petal. Since this homemade product was made in Soviet times, the figure shows how you can also make springs for it yourself. This is not necessary now. Springs of any length and diameter can be purchased. But part 2 will have to be made from duralumin yourself for the springs you have, which should be put on it tightly enough and hold well, not fall off. But this homemade product is very easy and quick to understand.


All-terrain vehicle-spring vehicle

But this homemade product, also a rover for Mars, where very strong winds blow, can be made right on the spot with a minimum amount of tools (polystyrene and superglue!) If you use five jars of Yantar cheese or sour cream, polystyrene knitting needles and cones made of thick paper glued with PVA glue. The main thing here is painting! You will need to stock up on silver nitro enamel and carefully paint the entire model so that the paint does not corrode the plastic. In this case, the model turns out to be very beautiful, the windmill on it rotates from the wind, so that it excites interest not only in children, but even in adults.


All-terrain vehicle-wind vehicle

Now look at this homemade product. This is a hovercraft that requires a microelectric motor and batteries. But then everything else except for parts 9, 10 and 11 is food packaging! “Skirt” 1 is a film from a garbage bag, and here it is hiding four tennis balls glued to the corners of a polystyrene box from “freezing”. Parts 9, 10, 11 will require labor - they are made of 1,5 mm polystyrene. Well, propellers 8 in fairings 7 (cans of "Yantar" cheese) can be made by yourself, or ... taken from the GDR model of the Tu-114 or Tu-95 aircraft. Well, if someone else has preserved them from those distant, distant times.

Parts 11 are air ducts. They dump excess air from under the hull onto the fake propellers. They begin to rotate, and it seems to everyone that this is why the model is moving. Swivel plugs can be fitted inside them. Their handles are details 12. By turning them at different angles, you can make the model move in a circle, which looks very impressive. Note that it is not worth launching it into the sea. Excitement, even weak, is contraindicated for her, but in the pool she moves perfectly above the water (although she will need to be well differentiated in advance with pieces of plasticine and make a well-functioning propeller to inject air into the body).


Hovercraft

Now, in our south, windsurfers are no surprise. But the toy windsurfer is still surprising. True, today this toy is quite expensive. The fact is that it was created for a homemade foam plastic figurine on a wire frame. And making it was ... well, very difficult. It's simple now. You can easily buy a figurine of a naked man with movable joints. However, it is not cheap - the 14,5-centimeter one costs 3700 rubles!

Make with the kids: homemade products for the summer ...
Figurine for 3700 rubles

But if you don’t regret this money, all you have to do is recount all sizes for it and make a toy windsurfing from foam. The material is the most accessible - sticks-spatulas for ice cream, skewers for kebabs, film from shopping bags and ... fishing weights as ballast on the keel. Making drop ballast is easy. You need to mold it from plasticine. Then mold into a double-sided plaster mold and cast from lead or tin. The main thing is that your surfer has a low center of gravity and the wind cannot turn him over. The figure itself inside the groove on the deck can move back and forth and even turn in different directions. How this is done is clear from the figure. It is better not to paint the polystyrene, but to paste over the surfer's body with a bright self-adhesive film!


Homemade toy - windsurfer


Submarine with rubber motor

What kind of "boats" of this type were not described in the magazines "Young Technician" and "Modelist-Constructor" of the Soviet era. But for the most part, their hulls for some reason needed to be cut out of wood. And modern children do not like to "cut Buratino". Do not like? Well, it is not necessary! We take two needle beds A from polystyrene, roll them out of paper or select a suitable plastic tube and ... here you have a practically finished submarine. We fill the front B and rear fairings of the D hull with epoxy resin or ballast them with fishing weights D. The hull parts, wheelhouse and rudders are all made of thin sheet polystyrene and glued to the hull with superglue. The front and rear fairings must fit firmly into it. Inside there are a rubber motor, a buoyancy block 8 made of foam, ballast 9, after which the model is painted black. It remains to paint a shark's mouth with acrylic paints (whoever likes it and who knows how!) And ... we can go and launch our "nuclear-powered ship" Borei ".


Aquaplane model "Skat"

The underwater aquaplane "Skat" is a homemade product that is rather complicated. And most importantly, it will require fiction. The fact is that it was created in the era of the USSR for DI-1-3 micromotors and R-1 gearboxes, and now you cannot find such a thing with fire during the day. But now there is polystyrene with a thickness of 1,5 mm, from which you can easily cut and glue all the details of the model. In any case, it will require three microelectric motors: two undercarriages, allowing to control the movement of the "Skat" to the left and right, and one motor for driving the horizontal rudders, which are responsible for immersion. The body panels are cut with a hot nichrome thread using the tool shown in our figure.


Machine for the production of profiled parts from foam

By the way, today the rudders can be driven by two steering gears. However, in any case, it is necessary to properly seal both the containers for the propulsion motors and the steering motor (or the shafts of the steering gears). This can be done with the help of a magnetic seal using finely dispersed ferrite powder or even ... iron filings, planed with a file or an emery wheel and collected using a magnet placed in a plastic bag.

Sawdust or ferrite powder is mixed with fuel oil or machine oil. This mixture is placed inside an annular magnet 11, which is closed on both sides of the engine container by covers 14 and 16 with holes for the shaft. Water will not pass through such a "magnetic seal". The main thing is that the mixture is very thick. The shafts of the travel motors are sealed in the same way.

The model is lightweight, therefore it needs ballast from shot, filled with epoxy resin. She has power, as well as control - external, via wires. But, despite this, it will be very interesting for your child to play with it. She can submerge and ascend, turn in different directions. Naturally, it should be painted as brightly as possible ...


Underwater bulldozer "Crab"

And, finally, the latest model is the coastal bulldozer "Crab", which is also very interesting for a child to play with. Sealing of running microelectromotors in it is also carried out by the magnetic fluid 26, poured inside the space of the ring magnet 27. The chassis can be used from any toy caterpillar all-terrain vehicle. The main thing is that the gears of its reducers are made of plastic.

All parts of the toy are cut out of polystyrene of various thicknesses and glued with polystyrene glue. Axles - polystyrene knitting needles, soldered with an electric burner. Our coastal bulldozer is painted canary yellow with black stripes, but the working teeth and blade will be best tinted with silver enamel to imitate real metal. On the sand of the sea coast, this toy looks just phenomenal, and your child will be happy to play it. Play and ... develop!

              Yes, dear, the role of pioneer camps is enormous in the process of a child entering a new social situation of development for him, setting the age and individual psychological characteristics of children. Because of these gadgets, they have forgotten how to communicate with each other.
              And the control of the state, over the correct upbringing, is not unimportant.

                You are confusing a pioneer camp with a school camp.
                During the summer and winter vacations, groups of students were formed who attended school and ate in it. Each group had a teacher. We arrived at 9 o'clock. We left after 16.
                At the same time, the city, as you understand, these children did not leave and do not leave.
                And "waders" - we all lived and live in one country, but even nature can be different. Not to mention the "environment of life" itself. I myself did not sit with my grandparents and saw them all once in my life. And I knew my own kind not in a single quantity.

                    There was only one country. But there were many regions and the weather in them was different, as were the organizations in which our parents worked. I saw the Black Sea only after my own marriage and with my own money. And I haven't seen the Baltic at all. But I don’t feel sorrow about this.

    As a child, we used to make our locks out of everything - from mailboxes, tubes, pasted over with cardboard under a stone. The gates were raised, the grates were lowered, the catapults and ballistae fired. You go out into the courtyard, and there are already several castles fighting among themselves. Each had several sets of "Battle on the Ice", the infantry moved to a match per turn, the cavalry - by 3. When the fighters "contacted" the outcome of the fight was decided by shouts - cavalry 2 throws, infantry one. They came home in the evening, tired of battles, with glowing eyes and stories about maneuvers and victories, achievements. The rules changed, read books with battles, looked for information on how to make soldiers. They learned the tactics of different eras. And when they made a map for naval combat out of Whatman paper and foam plastic, there was light ink, and the old people played with us in the courtyard. The fleet grew, the map expanded. Each of them had more than one ship, but a squadron. And the battles dragged on for several days - according to the coordinates, they wrote down the position of the ships in our "watch book" and the next day they set positions. My frigate "Black Eagle" was kept for many years.
    They did everything themselves, the adults were fond of us. There were times. Although today a new generation rises - made a siskin, so they are driving in rounders for the second season. laughing

        In terms of how to do it? Sharpen the stick on both sides, so that you can lift it up with a blow of the stick and knock it out.
        I didn’t take them, I explained the rules and showed how to play. And that's it! Himself drove for half an hour. They even forgot about smartphones with their virtual world. And cheerful laughter and vanity pulled others out of their homes. Until the fall, hide and seek became fashionable, and the Cossacks-robbers, and 15 tiles (15 cities in the Russian Federation were called like). I had a garage with a vegetable garden in my yard, made myself a workshop there and worked on the little things until all the garages were demolished. Well, with the courtyard kids, I was in authority bully

      Something similar happened in my childhood, only in our yard there were "plasticine" wars. Inspired by the naval collection from the "Modeler-Constructor", the boys made models of ships 20-30 cm in size from plasticine with artillery, vehicles and crew. All this beauty was then shot from wind pipes with arrows of different calibers according to certain rules - a ship with 8 guns had the right to fire 8 shots, then an "expert commission" laughing assessed the damage of the enemy and determined how many shots he could fire in response. The drama was off scale, and the battles of 2-3 dozen "pennants" gathered a crowd of spectators and fans, including adult men.

          This is yes. But there were also very dangerous "toys". At one time we made cannons from small cartridges - according to the principle of a samopal: a priming hole was punched with a thin awl in the rear part, a matchstick "gray", wad, "core" or "buckshot" was made from a finely chopped bicycle spoke. The plasticine ship was pierced through, and the cannon with the gun carriage was carried away with brutal force in the other direction (well, if not into the "artilleryman"). And it could break belay

            And we made "Cannons" from thread spools, more often just metal. And if the parents did not hide the matches well, then they would fire a firearm. To do this, you need a pencil with an embossed shaft and a spool. I will not tell you further. What was said goodbye in childhood is now a threat

              So we used wooden coils. An elastic band was tied with threads on one side of the barrel, and a trigger hole was cut on the other. He pulled a rubber band with one end of the match, the other rested against the hole, brought it to the archer, sent it to the enemy and pulled it down with a fingernail - the match flies out and knocks it down, kills the enemy. Technology!!! But in the book, with the click of a carnation through a tube - a redneck! laughing

      Nobody forces anyone! If you want to "buy off" your child, buy a quadrocopter. And don't buy him lace-up shoes. You still have to spend time learning how to tie these laces. Velcro or zipper is much easier ...

      Instead of spending energy and money on these, if I may say so, toys, it is better to buy your child a normal quadrocopter. Not only is flying fun, it is also incredibly useful and educational.

      Which quadcopter do you consider normal? What is the use and "education"? It is on sale for 5 thousand rubles, and there are from 300 thousand rubles. or over 1 million rubles.
      Maybe a child for development, first buy a bike, ball, skates and skis. For home activities, plasticine, constructor, etc.
      wink I really wanted a son, a radio-controlled helicopter and a radio-controlled tank, ideally 1: 8.
      But, in the first two years I forgot about these toys.

        For 30-40 thousand you can take quite a decent one. Physics and aerodynamics can be explained. Communication and control is possible. Useful for future photographers and drone pilots. If the arms grow from where they are needed and the head is on the shoulders, you can assemble a real flight simulator for 300 thousand and drive with the child along the airways, which will be useful later in the aviation school.

        My girls were good at taxiing both the Abrams and the Tiger, but with the helicopter it was worse ... The poor fellow is lying there without a tail rotor. The planes were launched until they broke ..
        And then my wife said that they were girls ... some kind of dolls went ...
        the truth is, the elder collects such houses from the designers .. interesting.
        So the girls are not a hindrance to quadrocopters and tanks with ships .. They rule just as well. The main thing is not to drip on their brains that they are girls and should lead the dolls ...

        And you think which tank they like. Shooting or racing.

      A handmade toy not only teaches to appreciate labor, but also teaches thinking skills in the absence of availability of material and tools.
      My classmate is Armenian, he suddenly became a Jew by his mother and went to Israel. When he decided to drink some tea, the electric kettle burned out. I took a screwdriver and decided to fix it. Employees ran into him, they say the company signed a contract for the repair of equipment, you need to call, come, pick up, take, repair, bring. ... he scratched the back of his head, realized that he could not drink tea today. Took a piece of wires, a couple of toothpicks, a disposable razor with two blades and what did he do? That's right - I boiled myself some water for tea with a bulbulator! When I brewed it, I turned around, and in the eyes of all the employees I saw the second coming of Jesus! laughing

    Submarine with rubber motor

    The main desire of my childhood :-)
    The fact is that it was created in the era of the USSR for DI-1-3 micromotors and R-1 gearboxes, and now you cannot find them with fire during the day.

    Somewhere I had a micromotor on diesel fuel for aircraft modeling - oh, what a thing! And all these electric motors for toys - they knew how, damn it, to do it reliably and cheaply. Engines from Soviet toys were really indestructible and worked for years (at least that is how I remember them)
    Sawdust or ferrite powder is mixed with fuel oil or machine oil. This mixture is placed inside an annular magnet 11, which is closed on both sides of the engine container by covers 14 and 16 with holes for the shaft. Water will not pass through such a "magnetic seal". The main thing is that the mixture is very thick. Shafts of travel electric motors are sealed in the same way.

    And now, after 22 years, I finally received an answer to the question of how to seal all this on the PL model)) Thanks for this alone!)

    Another portion of delight, Vyacheslav! Thanks for the article!

        yes it is, I made a lunar rover from there, and an apparatus on an air cushion, only it was different - made of cardboard. And last year I took the engines from the joysticks from the console. I attached a garment brush with the same eccentric to the container with the pile bent to one side, soldered the button ... I made it in front of my nephews and my grandson ... somewhere in search of what was needed among the trash and the assembly took about an hour. I pressed the button and this miracle went without microcircuits! Identity from memory from the magazine - the vibro-walk was kind of called. Toothbrushes were glued to the bottom of the soap dish and drove to the same.

    At one time, wooden planes were in use in our yard. Everything is as it should be, wings, fuselage, propellers. A hole was made at the end of the wing, a fishing line was tied, and you spin the plane around you. The propellers hum, the air hums, beauty! Sometimes air battles were organized, and it was not a special chic to collide head-on, but to cut someone else's fishing line with a wing, so that the enemy plane, losing control, flew away into the bushes somewhere. Well, or into the window of a neighboring five-story building, that's how it goes))

    Make with the kids: homemade products for the summer ...

    Dear Vyacheslav! By publishing the article, you deserve your well-deserved plus ...
    ==========
    How many different homemade products we made (tried to do) in childhood. Basically, all my peers in childhood were left to their own devices. Dads and mothers worked for the good of the country. By the way, the number of days off at that time was less.
    Today I believe that a father should initially teach his children all the tricks that can be useful in life (in extreme situations): build a hut, light a fire, cleanse and boil water, etc. etc.
    I accept the rest of applied art as a hobby or for a pastime. I had comrades who, like Vintik and Shpuntik, assembled, soldered, sawed out various devices and mechanisms. In adulthood, they began to engage in a completely different business. And I got the science taught by my grandfather and uncle. On mowing, you learn quickly and learn from the experience of your elders.

    Making such homemade products was very common among adolescents in the 50s - 60s of the last century. Basically, in circles at schools and palaces of pioneers of various levels from the district to the city, clubs and even at housing offices. With friends, we always sawed something out, planed and glued. My brother helped me, he was a little older and started back in the 50s.
    Relevant literature was published, supplements to the "Young Technician" magazine were printed.
    All these books were once in my home library. (I still keep them in electronic form. Just for memory.)




    I learned a lot from them, and a homemade detector receiver from a 1937 book, assembled by me in 1965 in a box of Cuban cigars, worked perfectly for 20 (twenty!) Years. I caught three stations - "First Program", "Mayak" and one local city station. Lost when moving to a new apartment. crying

    For another article, another thanks!
    True, IMHO, this time, not very quick, simple, "projects" ...
    And, a useful topic, like from "UT", - so as not to upset the child with the loss of the hard-won SP: be puzzled by the rescue system! It happens that, having dived, a submarine of its own production gets stuck in aquatic vegetation (nets) .... It is worth providing an emergency buoy, a line (string, cord), a piece of brightly tamed polystyrene. ..As an initiator, a fixer for dropping a buoy, - a piece of refined sugar, - the time is selected empirically. By the way, this is also a stage in teaching a child the laws of physics. hi

    Shpakovsky handsome.
    Only this all reminded me of the magazines of my youth. All the same young technician and his application. Even the Constructor does not pull on the Modelist.
    But this is all a saying.
    And the reality is that in the digital age, a father should come home, not drink beer, but also not cut cardboard and polystyrene. And download some thread of the cad prog, even if the same Compass. Show the basics of drafting and 3D design. And that's when the son will master it. And it is addictive, this is from experience. And go XNUMXD print the parts. Then collect the model and go.
    Progressively and with great benefit!
    At the same time, the child will learn the basics of CAD modeling and the understanding that you also need to be able to work with brains!
    P.S. Somehow 7 years ago I used a Compass for myself, so the sketches had to be thrown over.
    So a small day sitting on the sidelines hung in the Compass somewhere on the edge. And he was then 10 years old.
    So these are the prospects for fathers and children in terms of modeling.
    P.S. 2. You don't need to write just that not everyone has a printer everywhere.
    In modern realities, send a file to another city and get the result by the delivery service. Business 3-4 days!

        Compass is a CAD system for XNUMXD design. Simple enough to learn.
        And if you can easily write a similar program with minimal effort, then you are cooler than Gates and Mask combined.

          laughing
          I know a lot of compasses, even gyroscopic ones, even simple ones from a magnetized needle, even the same CAD, but for modeling and subsequent animation from 3D I use Blender, which is not in the kitchen. I think if I need to, I'll sit down for programming. Although hardly.
          Gates and Musk - they are siskins next to me! They just have loot from other people's ideas and minds and skillfully promote themselves.
          Remember, in one scripture, a weekly process for creating the World is described? So this is what I do on a weekly basis! I create Worlds, invent creatures and I bring them to life - I teach them to move, endow them with character and emotions, give them history ...
          So it is here. People make handicrafts from improvised means in front of their eyes, moreover, they also make them move by themselves! This is no longer a trick, there is already magic for children! Well, if a child takes part in such a thing, it will be a fairy tale for him! Buy an expensive toy, well, it breaks down - throw it out without pity, dad will buy it again. And if you look into the future, then it is enough to look at the salaries of a plumber with a vocational school and an engineer with a tower.
          So who's cooler? wink tongue

            Do it by hand? Invaluable for the development of hands and brains.
            But life has gone far ahead!
            And sawing plastic or cardboard?
            If you have offspring, then you should know that they are in phones and in numbers!
            At the expense of a plumber and an engineer!
            A plumber in Europe gets at the level of an engineer, and if he takes more hours, then more!
            But this is a linear engineer.
            Well, the type of drawings and no more.
            If a person is in the project and has some kind of influence, then the engineer accordingly receives three times the salary of the plumber.
            But no one relieves responsibility and profiting puts an end to the future.
            Therefore, the constant race for novelty and reality.

        Partly, more in spirit, I agree with you. However, it is worth admitting that, along with "cardboard", "corks", - logic, realities, suggest that CAD is the future of our children (which, of course, does not negate the ability to hammer a nail And, amazingly, on an intuitive level, without knowing the basics of the physics of processes, children get it easier! (I judge by myself - a systems engineer, however, a military one))), and by my daughter, -6 years old))) ).

          Why know how to hammer in a nail? Pay him the highest best school of an IT specialist, there he will most likely become a Genius - money will flow like a river! He rang the hammer, he came, told about the terrible laborious process of hammering the nails, took out a hammer with beautiful stickers and a laser sight - BANG and ripped off a couple of thousand from you! lol I casually changed light bulbs for one such STAR for $ 10 apiece! And arrogance with his pathos instantly flew off quickly. But for the old veteran pilot he repaired everything he could free of charge!

              Okay, here's an example.
              By the will of fate, I could no longer fly, for merit they put me in a chair in a good place. But for a long time I could not look at the faces of the flyers. Gone. The doctors promised me a four-legged life, but Dikul's example helped me to stand firmly on my feet. I went out into the street, to a meeting with a neighbor, congratulated me on my recovery. Having learned that he was going to the coven, he begged to take it with him. That is how I became the filler's assistant! I was tired of just stirring and swallowing dust. After a couple of orders, we were already in equal shares. Then he put together a team for Jewish repair, called Eurorepair. In general, money is a river. I liked the smell of wood. I saved up money and opened my own shop. I hired a carpenter, myself to him as an auxiliary. Rumbled in the city. Friends for the summer made it easy to take the children. So all seven remained to the end. All became masters. 2008 - crisis, price dumping. Sold the workshop. Paid debts, ran aground. Nothing - got over to the formworkers, took the Uzbeks and flooded the stairs. But the uniformity was killing. Friends, accustomed to my unsinkability, created a small design firm with me. We worked on the cutting plotter, but quickly went up the hill. All foreign firms were crushed by profile, at first they were flooded with products through intermediaries, and then they came to the competition empty-handed. When asked why? They opened the door to the corridor and showed our signs on the doors, brought us to the window and explained that all the signs were our work. In general, it worked flawlessly. Income again.
              I got some free time and I finally got into animation! It was tightened strongly. Here is my journey from aviator to animator in a nutshell. 100 and 2 professions. In general, I got used to it, fell in love with the new World and decided to transfer my hobby to the profession. I began to study the market, found a niche and flopped headlong into a long-term project. And then bam - the crowned Scribe crept up. So he hit not me, but the creeditors - everyone's business collapses. Weighed whether it is worth waiting for the end of this chaos and whether I can live to see it, tk. the old sore is eating me up. I made one and the right decision - I sold absolutely everything, worked out what was missing and did the operation. I went out, and in my pocket there was a pencil, some trifle and ... and that's it! He spent the night in entrances, roofs, parks for a week, and then got a job in a furniture shop as a janitor. In a month, he made his career as a furniture master, bought a phone, called his relatives, that everything is fine. Now I am a molar, the results of airbrushing have given. I am saving up for a laptop, and by the way, I manage to make money on freelancing from a smartphone using animation (for young geniuses, this is a shock!) laughing

A boy should come with abrasions, bruises, torn pants, a neighboring sour cherry in his mouth and be immensely happy at the same time - he is a future MAN who will fight for his family in a big life! But these "home" creatures with an arrogant face from the rating in some game and mazol on their fingers .... I don't know. Maybe they will be one of the millions who just make money on fame. request

                Last year, the battery leaked in the fall. I found a master on the Internet: "readiness 15 minutes." They called after 10. The master asked to remove the breakdown and send it to him. And also guarantee payment for parts by check. Sent a photo of batteries for replacement and a price tag. He promised to be in three hours. Exactly when I arrived, brought a battery and fasteners. I've done everything. I don’t remember the price, but quite normal .. Then the pipe in the bathroom flew. Also - send a photo. He came, brought half a bag of cement, a pipe. He worked for half an hour, well, forty minutes. He swept everything behind him. I requested 800 rubles. and got them. It was here he was on the Lexus. The daughter is studying at our law school. The wife doesn't work. Before that, they decided to call the locksmiths from the housing department ... they came ... there is no cement, buy a pipe ... 800 rubles for work. And the stench from them on the whole apartment ... underpants, socks, fumes, the cheapest tobacco. Chased away ...

              An acquaintance worked as a foreman in Schlumberger, realized that without a tower it was impossible to climb higher - he collected money and entered an institute in St. Petersburg. I lived with my aunt, as I did - I kicked out. And before studying, almost 2 months. As I staggered, I saved. In a pub with a man, he loosened up and splashed out the rush. He took plumbers into the brigade. To celebrate, an acquaintance put down (our upbringing). In short, he easily joined the team. They looked closely at him for a couple of weeks, then they began to take him to the Sabbath. Total for 7 years. He only came to the institute to pick up documents, a three-room apartment in St. Petersburg, a car, citizenship. He brought his wife, gave birth to a son and is immensely happy! laughing

    I used the UT magazine for development and Lefty for the assembly of different ships. From a trireme, a karakka, a frigate, a galleon, to Aurora and Retvizan ... But I didn't collect it, but I sold the karakka.

    There were also books on how to correctly assemble models with drawings.
    Since I already got to the copiers, I freely reduced the drawings to myself in the required format and assembled mini models for myself.
    The main thing before, I did almost without money ... Except that I spent on plastic models, but they cost a ruble (they sold Soviet stocks)

    This is for the wimps! I looked at Ali with normal UAVs with a ground control station for 180 - 000 rubles. laughing
    But seriously, it is excessive to show something to a child on such expensive things. There are a lot of motors now. On the same Ali. For a penny. Attach a propeller and a penoplex housing with a battery to it and fly.

      And if you sharpen an electrode on the asphalt, then attach it with an aluminum wire to a bamboo rod. And then buy a bundle of harness at the pharmacy for 23 kopecks and attach it to the beginning of the rod with a loop. it turns out a harpoon!

    I remember this book from school, in general I began to study modeling with it. Now adolescents have a lot of everything from which models can be made, including technical information that can be taken from the Internet. But alas, not all of them use it.

      Alas, yes. There are opportunities, but there is no desire. Because there is no state. propaganda in the field of technical creativity. A robotics class costs 4000 rubles / month, which is not affordable for everyone. There were no TV shows from the "do it yourself" series. At least at the level of "myth busters".
      They say that in China everything is exactly the opposite. There, the children are masovo engaged in all sorts of useful things ...

      And thank you! A kind word is pleasant for a cat, and even more so for a person! The funny thing is that in the 80s of the last century, when my first book was published, articles went ... There were smart people in Kazakhstan who began to reprint all this without my consent, but with the preservation of authorship and moreover, they came up with title - "Teacher of free time".

I raved about them. He remembers how he decided to give me a gift and half a day invented a ballista for the soldiers for me, and when I showed him my ballistae and catapults, he felt ashamed of his craft and he did not show laughing Thank you very much from him!

    I remembered the joke about toys nailed to the floor. Instead of spending energy and money on these, if I may say so, toys, it is better to buy your child a normal quadrocopter. Not only is flying fun, it is also incredibly useful and educational.

    In the process of CREATING any object (a toy, or something "adult", it does not matter), its creator has to solve various engineering (by and large) problems, to show imagination in finding their solution. EXCLUSIVELY IMPORTANT THING for a growing person. But what is the educational benefit of the finished purchased quadrocopter - I don't understand.
    In his childhood he spent a lot of hours fiddling with various constructors (both Lego and Mahano). No harm but good. I think that the hours were very productively spent.

    This is all very cool. The child needs to understand 3 things:
    1) where to get the accessories and tools for all this.
    2) where to collect all this in the apartment, so that later your hands would not be torn off by glue on something.
    3) where to find time for all these entertainments.

      I'll tell you a terrible secret - all THIS was invented in the shortage of a scoop! NOW finding this GARBAGE is not a problem! Can you assemble-cut-glue with your child on a bench at the entrance (get a lot of authority from grannies)?
      But over time ... then yes! Kick-ass problem of finding time for a child! ...

    So it is, IMHO, "Mehano". There were many types of them in the USSR, but the coolest, IMHO, the "Youth" series. "Yunost" had several sets (numbers), from small to large. The things were of high quality.

    For fathers and their male children, this is especially true! laughing
    A match-gun, modernized from the latest materials (in the old-mode version, an elastic element was used in the throwing unit, such as: a rubber tube from a bicycle tire nipple):




    Ideally, only the head of the match should stick out of the tube. Now she can beautifully blow up burning matches up to 5 meters, the main thing is not to set fire to anything superfluous and not shoot people. You can also very covertly shoot indoors (at school, yeah) with "safe shells", just letting go of the match with your thumb, then quickly squeeze the device into a fist and you are not in business, you just walked by, yeah ... bully
    At one time, I made a micro MLRS (60 PU cells), with preliminary ignition (Soviet 2,5 V bulbs, we separate the flask from the base, the spiral goes to the heating element, and the miner's lead-acid one to the power supply bus, is controlled from a remote control like a toggle switch two-position from the dashboard AN-24) incendiary type warhead, with unguided BB laughing , received a call to the director for his parents, after a successful test on the school football field, with a confident thermal effect on the surrounding bushes of dried weeds, coupled with the non-illusory mats of the local janitor and the heavy looks of the city fire department !!! good

          Because of my father's work, he worked in one Siberian airport, there was a lot of things from the board's write-off, even the gyroblock was lying around, since childhood he played with such devices and disassembled with his playful pens ... therefore tumblers are such a consumable and only, but pieces of HP turbine blades, or oil pumps and fuel good - these are the topics for technical creativity, the sprinkler beat 100 meters from the nozzle, with pumping from the VD AN-24 fuel pump, is it a joke under 200 atmospheres in the VD receiver, shot offenders from the balcony on Ivan Kupala's day !!! yes
