Crazy Machines 2

On the topic of individuals learning from games.

Check out Crazy Machines II

The question is: do children learn more from simulations because of the ability to rapid-prototype, or should they just hang out with some tools in the garage instead?

Simulations are fine, but what about the physical experience of actually using or building a machine?  Wouldn’t a Lego Mindstorms or similar toy provide more hands-on / real learning than a computer simulation such as this?

My experience with Benjamin (4.75 yrs old) has been that he seems to get the concepts pretty quickly.
