http://www.rokenbok.com Rokenbok's Remote Control Monorail is simple yet sophisticated at the same time, and so much fun! It has all the features of a model train, like switches and sidings, depots and stations. Tracks are assembled from Rokenbok construction pieces, making track layouts flexible and inexpensive. Look out Thomas, this is no tank engine! This remote controlled robotic train has a powered dump bed that loads and unloads itself by remote control; interact with water towers, dumping bins, and all the other vehicles in the Rokenbok fleet.
This video features several standard Rokenbok building sets. The Rail Station is an included plan from the Architect's Dream set. The area to the right is constructed from the Monorail Storage Depot, and is the perfect playground for a Rokenbok Remote Control Fork Lift. Railroad switches and railroad crossings are featured throughout, and are inexpensive additions to any Rokenbok rail layout.
The cool X shaped trestles in the back are a custom design that use the angle blocks from the Inventor's Tool Kit or Inventor's Tool Box sets. That's where you will find other advanced and articulating building components like hinges, axles, pulleys, and wheels.
If you are not familiar with Rokenbok, it's a small company based in Solana Beach, California, near San Diego. The Company's mission is to create ideal learning environments for children, and Rokenbok has been shipping its high quality, educational toy system since 1997.
Rokenbok construction lets children build their own ideas, and Rokenbok ROK Star machines are so much fun because they work so well. The two together create endless, special playtimes for children and their parents. Each building set or remote control machine can be enjoyed alone or as part of an ever-growing world with unlimited play and educational potential. Winner of more than 50 toy awards, Rokenbok is a superb investment that will engage the whole family, even when the youngest child is only three years old. In fact, parents (and grandparents) love playing with Rokenbok almost as much as their kids.
Rokenbok construction is different because you make real working buildings that interact with ROK Star machines. You can follow included step-by-step instructions, or it's easy to invent your own worlds; conveyor and chute systems, strong bridges, interactive rail yards, even a whole working airport. The idea is to build fun interactions, and then have even more fun operating your vehicles to get the job done. That's why we say, "When the building is done, the fun has just begun."
ROK Star remote control machines are tough, real-working equipment. They are built for rough play, crashes, and spills. These are not ordinary toys, but precise and very rugged little robots. Every machine is carefully designed to work with all the others to create fun interactions. A single ROK Star Controller can control every machine in your fleet, and multiple controllers let the whole family play at the same time. There are lots of hidden features, like auto-hitching, horns and sirens. These machines are smart, too. They won't interfere with each other, so you can add as many ROK Star machines and controllers as you want to your Rokenbok world.
Creating a construction system that is fun for children and adults is a sensible idea. It brings together the educational benefits of construction play and child/parent interaction. Rokenbok's goal is to create those playtimes where fun and education overlap. Rokenbok is a legacy quality toy system that your whole family can enjoy for many years, and there is a good chance you'll be handing it down to the next generation of young parents and builders.
Rokenbok was founded in 1995 by Paul Eichen, fondly known as Mr. Rokenbok by Rokenbok builders (Rokenbokers) all over the world. He can always be reached at Mr.Rokenbok@rokenbok.com.
