Erector Set $60
I love building, but finding parts can be hard. With erector sets, you can build all sorts of cool stuff, and even use the parts in other fun projects. Erector sets are flat steel parts with holes that come in all shapes and sizes, with right angle connectors and motors. With a little work you can build a car, or a building, or even a crane!
