Pow!Science! at Festival Fete’s Holiday Market

20 Nov

Pow!Science! was a HUGE hit at Festival Fete’s last event – the East Greenwich Art Festival, and we are so happy that they will be entertaining guests (of all ages) at Festival Fete’s Holiday Market!

My 8-year-old son was so enchanted with the race track he wanted to stay there all day. In fact, as soon as we got home he immediately began to set up his own version of a race track layout with his Hot Wheels tracks and cars. I love to see toys that are build-able, creative and stand the test of time (I remember my brother playing with these in the 1970’s). In fact, I’m sure that the reason that toys like Lego’s and Hot Wheels tracks have remained popular for decades is that they are adaptable to kids of all ages and there is no limit to how many creative ways you can play with them. When you see the guys from Pow!Science! in their race track at Festival Fete, you will certainly see their enthusiasm for this classic toy!

We’re very excited to participate at Garden City: we’ll be once again presenting our incredible Hot Wheels & Blu-Track layout–a 10×10 foot interactive race track for kids to play with. We’ll be there with 50+ feet of track that will keep kids happy & busy. Adults generally find it pretty compelling as well. – Eric B. Pow!Science!

As you may  know, Pow!Science! is so much more than an educational store; they offer classes for home-schoolers, scouts, libraries and at schools in the classroom or as part of an assembly or after school program. They will host completely fun and interactive birthday parties (I thoroughly enjoyed the volcano building and Mentos + soda explosion at the last party my son attended there).
In addition to all of those fun options, the biggest in-store event of the Fall at Pow!Science! has been their Lego Club, which is a free event held weekly at both locations. It’s a ‘drop in’ event, come when you want, stay as long as you want, and build. The Pow!Science! Lego Club meets in the Activity Room on Tuesdays in Providence and Thursdays in Wakefield from 4:30 to 6pm. Visit the Pow!Science! website for more information.

Pow!Science! brought 4000 blocks to my son’s Cub Scout meeting last night for some competitive tower building for 60 kids. Wow!

We love having them at our events, and are so happy that they will be at the Holiday Market on December 1st and 2nd in Garden City.  Pow!Science! is a real gem and a gift to Rhode Island – Jennifer Neuguth.

Setting up and getting ready for the frenzy of building boys!
