Look Inside an Xbox 360

Look Inside xbox 360

We were really excited to be able to find out what’s inside an Xbox when we got to our house in France. Some of you had requested or suggested this as the next in our series of ‘Look Inside’ items.

Our old Xbox was broken, so we decided to open it up to take a look inside. We did it quite carefully in case we were able to have it repaired later, but it was still lots of fun to do!

Have a look at our video and see what awesome things we found inside our Xbox 360…

“I was about to get a hammer to smash the Xbox up because I was getting so bored and frustrated! But sadly I could not 🙁  . We still enjoyed doing the opening up though. It was really interesting to take a look inside and see what components make up our favourite games console.”

Next time we might be a little bit rougher, and really break something up! What do you think it should be?

Please subscribe to our Youtube Channel to see the next videos we make. As well as breaking things open, we also do Vlogs, mostly about our travels. We also like to share gaming videos.

    This is such a super idea! What a way to learn about how things work, a super experiment and the much better than actually playing on the Xbox, he he he #FabFridayPost

      Thank you – it was their idea actually, but I was happy to go along with it!

  5. Neat. I have to say this is a great STEM activity. I am sure your kids can have fun playing with the parts and exploring thier purpose.

    1. They certainly do! A great activity for curious minds.

  6. That is pretty cool to see inside without the worry that the kids are going to break it lol.
    I think you are going to have lots of fun opening things up x

    1. Thanks Ali, yes we already have a couple lined up!

  7. Aww… your boys are gorgeous! I really like this idea of looking inside something. They get to learn so many things! Thank you so much for linking up with us on #FabFridayPost x

  8. Awesome. I used to take apart video players and did players and tvs when I was a kid. I’ll have to show your video to my nephew. #kcacols

      You’d get on well with my boys then Bread! Hope your nephew enjoys it. They have done a Hudl (tablet computer) which is on here too.

  9. I bet this was great fun! I remember my dad letting my brother and I open up an old VCR back in the day – I had cool bits of that VCR saved in my bedroom for years. 🙂 #KCACOLS

      Oh thanks for sharing that lovely memory Jess, I hope that’s how my boys see it too!

  10. Was it pretty much what you thought it would be? #KCACOLS

    1. Familymakes says: Reply

      It was more ‘tidy’ and compact than we expected! Can’t wait to open up more stuff!

  11. Fantastic! I love doing this to see the nitty gritty of technology. We did this with a ps3 #KCACOLS

      Oh fab! In my day we took apart a clock or a music box! Times change!

  12. Ah I love how the boys are really exploring form and function and thinking about why each part is there like the fan. I might try something like this with my girl over the summer holidays. Thanks 🙂 #KCACOLS

      I know, I really like it that something they have chosen to do is such an educational activity. shhhh don’t tell them though!!

  13. This is great! Your boys really loved opening this box. They were so excited to discover all the different pieces. Really cute to watch. Thanks so much for sharing this at #KCACOLS. It is lovely to have you, 🙂 x
