Jet-Works Engine shows inner workings of gas-guzzling turbines

This toy jet engine is not going to fly you anywhere, but it'll sure demonstrate what goes on inside those fiery turbines. Your kid can learn how to be a jet engine mechanic, putting together the kit's 50 parts, and then adjusting thrust, speed and engine sounds with the battery-operated model's control panel.

Maybe by learning how today's noisy, fossil-fuel-guzzling jet engines work, the next generation of engineers will figure out a way to power those flying tin cans with a more efficient method we oldsters haven't thought of yet. Good reason to invest $29.95 in this brain-building model.
