Product Description

Follow the instructions to build a working cable car out of a recycled tin can. Switch it on and watch as it climbs the string back and forth! Cool mechanics makes learning and recycling fun and easy.
Build a working cable car out of a recycled soda can!

Detailed step-by-step instructions allow you to easily construct the motor and perfectly align the pulleys.

Finish off the last sip of that soda you've been drinking, wash it clean, decorate it with the stickers, and attach it to the clamps.

Now you're ready to roll!

Using the cable stops, attach one end of the string onto your wall up high and the other end across the room down low.

Switch on the motor, sit back, and watch as it rolls its way along the string back and forth!

When the car reaches the end of its string, the wall pushes its reversing shaft, switching the motor into reverse and sending it back down the string.

Build, learn about mechanics, and discover the power of recycling with the 4M Tin Can Cable car.

      My son is 8 and enjoyed building the cable car. He followed the directions and only asked for help a few times. We did take it a step further by cutting out the windows of the can lined with duct tape and now he uses it to transport his legos and other toys across his room.

      My son is older and harder to shop for but he loves building things and he absolutely loved the tin car and has had a lot of fun with it.
