Take flight with Klutz this summer
By Lauren on July 3rd, 2012
It’s officially summer and if you’re like me, you want to take advantage of the longer days and the warm weather by being outside as much as possible. If you’re looking for some great ways to bask in the sun and have some outdoor fun, why not check out Klutz’s line of aerodynamic books that will have you flying high.
We know you’ve spent time in the back of the classroom perfecting the paper plane with some wide ruled notebook paper, but Klutz is taking it to the next level with The Klutz Book of Paper Airplanes. A winner of the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Award and the Parents’ Choice Award, The Klutz Book of Paper Airplanes provides step-by-step instructions for folding ten aerobatic amazements. The book comes with 40 sheets of flight-tested, ready-to-fold paper.
Who doesn’t dream of wielding their very own lightsaber, battling Darth Vader and taking down an evil empire? While Klutz can’t put you in the Star Wars Saga, they can certainly bring all the excitement of the movies to you with Star Wars Folded Flyers. Build Y-Wings, X-Wings, Millennium Falcons and more that zoom through your living room as well as they do in outer-space. In addition to instructions for starship folding, flying and tinkering, the book includes detailed descriptions of each flyer—written by the pilots. Darth Vader describes maneuvering a TIE fighter, while Hans Solo details the inner workings of the Millennium Falcon.
If you’re for a new challenge, why not try a new spin on and old classic? Rubber band powered planes have been around for ages, but Klutz has reinvented them. The three planes in Rubber Band Powered Flying Machines have been engineered for maximum performance. Build them, fly them and watch the principles of aerodynamics and physics come to life.
