Crafting is a great way to be with kids while also helping them be creative. Plus, it not only teaches kids something new, but also allows them to refine their interests.

Engineering projects, on the other hand, are often very complex and difficult, so you need certain skills and knowledge to do them. But it is this challenge that makes the work so exciting. It is a way to strengthen the positive development of children.

Craft and engineering – strengthening cognitive development

Crafts and engineering have always been important areas of the economy. They will continue to play an important role in the future. Nevertheless, they also pose challenges for children’s development. Especially with regard to education and training.

Both areas have developed greatly in recent years. For example, there are now many different professions and specialties, each with their own requirements. This makes it more difficult for children to decide on a particular profession. In addition, it is often no longer possible to learn the profession of the father or mother. This is because many trades are now practiced by specialists who have specialized in a particular field.

However, engineering also offers challenges and opportunities for children’s development. For example, children can come into contact with the subject of technology at an early age and thus broaden and deepen their sphere of interest. In addition, engineering offers much sustainable opportunities to continue its intellectual development process.

At Kiks-Racing, we want to promote both areas, which is why we refer to it as hand-engineering.

What skills are fostered in the pursuit of hand engineering?

Handicrafts offer a wide range of opportunities to develop children’s motor, cognitive and social skills. Engaging in craft activities promotes fine motor skills, the ability to concentrate, and spatial awareness. In addition, handling tools and materials also trains perception and problem-solving skills.

Motor skills are promoted in handicrafts, especially through fine motor skills. The children learn to work precisely and carefully in order to achieve the best possible result. This skill is necessary, for example, to drill a hole in a board or hammer a nail into a wall.

Handicrafts also train the ability to concentrate and spatial awareness. The children learn to concentrate on a task and carry it through to the end. In the process, they often have to implement complex steps precisely, which strengthens their spatial imagination.

Perception is also trained when working with tools and materials. The children learn to pay attention to details and to orient themselves precisely. They often have to use different tools and deal with the different properties of the materials. This not only promotes their perception, but also their problem-solving skills.

How can I get my child interested in craft topics?

It is important that parents introduce their children to the world of crafts from an early age. After all, crafts are exciting, creative and offer a lot of variety. With a little imagination and skill, children can learn and achieve a lot in this field.

But how can parents introduce their children to crafts? A good way is to do handicrafts or repairs together with the child. In this way, the child learns about the different tools and gets an insight into the various work steps. Visits to workshops or trade fairs are also exciting activities for children, where they can see and learn a lot of new things.

Parents should also always tell their children what great things you can create or repair with your own hands. In this way, children develop an interest in the subject and may want to become a hand engineer themselves at some point.


What a great thing to get your child excited about craft careers! Not only will this help him expand his skills and knowledge, but it will also give him the opportunity to exercise his creativity. In the process, he will learn to overcome challenges and develop himself. All this will help him to lay the foundation for a sound knowledge.

At Kiks-Racing, we support children with our technical kits – for which they will be rewarded in the end. Check out the idea of Kiks-Racing in our themed area and stop by our store.

We can hardly wait.

When I got my first Lego Technic kit as a child, I was immediately thrilled. The many small parts and the possibility to build really cool things with them – that fascinated me. Here you can read all about my enthusiasm for Lego Technic and how we implemented this idea with our Kiks-eRacer K1 GoKart.

What fascinates us about Lego Technic?

There is something very special about growing up with Lego Technic and then deciding to plan your own GoKart kit. For us, it’s not just about learning how to simply assemble the parts, but more about the creativity and commitment you put into building your go-kart. It’s fascinating how our components can be turned into something so complex and functional.

When you choose our GoKart kit, you get that Lego Technic feel right away. If you decide to build things yourself, you have the opportunity to let your creativity run wild and implement your ideas.

You get to know many new things and gain experience. This is especially useful for children and teenagers, as they improve their motor skills and learn how to handle your first own vehicle. But also for adults, building with our Kiks-eRacer K1 GoKart is a great leisure activity where you can switch off and leave the hustle and bustle of everyday life behind.

However, building the go-kart becomes a special experience as a joint parent-child project.

How did we get the idea to build a GoKart?

It all started with an idea and a great enthusiasm for Lego Technic. We wanted to create something that didn’t exist before – a hybrid GoKart as a DIY kit! So we set to work and developed our first prototype. It was a huge success and so we came up with the idea of developing a kit for other children and adults so that they too could build their own GoKart.

Today we are proud to have released our first kit. We hope that many people will enjoy it and that they too will soon be able to build their own hybrid GoKart!

What challenges did we have to overcome in creating the GoKarts kit?

Developing a GoKarts kit was no easy task. We had to bring together many different components and make sure they all worked perfectly together and were also streetable.

First of all, we had to develop a frame strong enough to support the engine and all the other components. This was no easy task, as we wanted to develop a very lightweight frame that was still strong enough.

Another important aspect was choosing the right tires. We wanted tires that were light and strong at the same time. Finally, we had to make sure that all components harmonized perfectly with each other. To do this, safety was our top priority when we designed our kit.

This was not an easy task, but we worked hard on it and in the end we had a perfect go-kart kit – the Kiks-eRacer K1!

How does it feel to drive my homemade go-kart?

It’s an incredibly satisfying and exciting feeling to drive my homemade go-kart! It’s amazing what you can build yourself with a little creativity and technical skill. Above all, the team feeling of having created something together is overwhelming.

Children understand the interrelationships of the construction and can thus take care of the care and maintenance of the hybrid GoKarts themselves. We are absolutely thrilled and can hardly describe the incredible driving fun our vehicle brings.
