Default Making a kids toy

Thread cause...
-I like documenting shit, cause I forget fookin everything.
-Maybe someone will see this and wanna do some shit with their kid.
-You fuckers have some good ideas once in a while


So we got a new money->poop conversion machine last week, and the older model is probably feeling a little neglected. He's 3 and change, right about the age where he's wanting to be out in the garage with dad, and I was thinking this could make a fun project. Also I have some plywood leftover from my workbench I need to do something with.


They make these things called "busy boards" or "fidget boards" or some variation of that, basically a board full of shit for a kid to fuck with.
Like this:



Neat idea, but I want it to be
A) Cooler than the stuff on google, and
B) Have things that will instill some understanding of mechanical concepts that apply in the real world.


So I'm rummaging through my mountain of shit to find suitable trinkets. A chain over a couple sprockets is on the list, just need to figure out a way to secure them to the board. I'll stick a deadbolt door latch off in the corner. Working on an idea for a little door with a 3-bolt safe-style latching mechanism... turn the gear and it actuates latch bolts on the 3 non-hinged sides. Also wanna stick something on there that uses cams, that's a good concept to wrap his head around.

Big thing I'm wondering is what can be done with electrics. Easy enough to throw some switches on there but what will they do? One could flick an LED on, but that gets boring fast.


Started with actual progress today. Found a handful of gears that will mesh together, zapped a screw onto one of them. Making up a handle for the screw and a center pivot on the lathe when I get some time this week. Kiddo is I think a bit young to have around machines that can blind you or rip your face off, but he'll help with the install.






You guys have any cool ideas for this thing? Anything that makes noises is out, there's enough shit around here that sings/honks/beeps/drives me fucking crazy.

a mechanical interlocked cover for the gears, that also lights up an led, stops fingers being jammed in gears and means the sequence has to be followed to turn gears?

You could use swappable boards that have different wire paths built into them to do different things.

1. Have a small computer fan and LED halo ring on one, where if you use a dual switch board, they turn on individually (like a ceiling fan).
2. Have a set of single switchs with lines to create a puzzle and a set of LEDs with other lines on them (like a wiring diagram) You can switch on certain circuits and have the different colors appear easily.
3. A controller board with a few flashing options to use with the switches.
4. A clear / home made relay to show the principles of electromagnetism closing a switch.

Some simple suggestions, I left out the one with a jar and steel wool, might be unsafe.
