I can't describe how much the Apollo missions to the Moon inspired me to go into engineering.  What I remember from age five to ten was using my Lego sets to design and build "Lunar Rovers" for future trips.

If you want to give your kids and grandchildren fun toys that inspire them while building their hand-eye coordination, it is hard to think of better gifts than Lego Toys, Lincoln Logs, K'nex building sets and I am very pleased to see they have a set just for girls called Goldie Blox.
