interaction: child uses imagination, winds up toy, pretends it is actual helicopter.
construction/safety: thin sheet metal can be stamped into shape cheaply. making the helicopter blades will be more expensive, and the wind-up mechanism will have to be geared to not spin the blades too fast, which would be another safety hazard.
what I learned: something simple often turns out to be more complicated than it seems.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
