The Makeblock Airblock is an educational toy designed to tap into children's innate desire to have fun and be creative while letting them exercise logic and critical thinking skills, as well as learn block-based programming and the principles of aerodynamics. The Airblock consists of a core master module and six power modules, each of which contains motors and propellers, like a drone. In fact, kids can connect the modules to make a drone, a hovercraft, or even a puppet. They can even attach other materials to the modules to explore a myriad of other ideas and possibilities.

Each hexagonal module connects to each other via built-in magnets. Not only do these connections allow for construction, but they also power what they create as long as the master control module is part of the final design. Once snapped together, kids can program and control their creations via the MakeBlock coding app. Intuitive coding within the app lets them string together a series of abilities that can be triggered with a tap.

Flying Robot, Hovercraft, and More

While kids can make their own creations, two options include the hovercraft and flying robot. The flying robot is basically a drone and incorporates the core master module in the center, with all six power modules around it. It can take off with just a click, perform flips and spirals with just a tap on the app, and can be piloted from up to 33' away. The hovercraft design creates a cushion of air that lets the vehicle zip around quickly, drift and dodge, and hover over both land and water.

Program and Pilot, No Experience Required

The Makeblock app and programming capabilities are designed to get kids up and running, creating their own tricks without any prior programming experience needed. They can program flight maneuvers, adjust airflow intensity, create a variety of colorful LED light changes, and more. The same app that lets them program also lets them pilot with a touch.

Award-Winning Design

The innovative design of the Airblock has earned it multiple design awards such as the German IF Design Award, the German Reddot Product Design Award, the Korean K-Design Award, the American IDEA Award, the Japanese Good Design Award, and more. Whether you get an Airblock for your own child or use it as a teaching aid in STEAM education, the Airblock can engage and educate while letting kids have a ton of fun along the way.
