My 10yr old nephew and I put this together in about 10 mins for his school science/electronics project (I do have a physics degree btw, so I know my way around circuits, but this one really isn't that complicated). He was able to understand the basic concepts of the electronic circuit from this (took a lot longer than 10mins for me to explain this to him though lol). He was very excited by this and proud of himself for understanding - it was a very thrilling moment when we put the batteries in and heard the buzzer sound for the first time! lol He aced his science project and spent ages and ages with his brothers and sister playing with this thing too! :)

The product itself is a bit flimsy, but its an educational tool and its not designed to be super robust and last forever. It does what it advertises.

Did have one complaint: the instructions weren't that great. Basic boring black and white diagrams. It would have been great if there had been a brightly coloured and kid-friendly booklet or pamphlet inside to explain the circuitry and give much clearer instructions on how to assemble it. It's for this reason that I'm taking a star away from this. With better kid-friendly information inside, it would be a 5/5.

I found this product a bit flimsy. It works and is fairly easyt to set up but the bits are vey thin plastic and can come apart a little too easily..

The instructions aren't very clear and adult help is required for younger children. Overall though good, once you've had the patience to put it together, perhaps more suitable for older children.

Too difficult for my 8 year old to make, but only took Dad 10 minutes and was ready to use. Made a good stocking filler, very small have a close look at the picture, but ideal for an 8 year old and wont take up much room. The idea is to try to move along the wire without touching it or it will buzz. Good value.

If part of the fun was supposed to be assembling this then I think I missed it. The lengths of wire which you have to join everything together are pushed into a metal ring which then pushes into a hole and a plastic pin into that. I think I still have marks on my thumb trying to push that pin into the hole once the kids gave up. Then you make the flimsy wire into the shape you need and 'wrap' the end of the insulated wire to the end of this. This then goes into a hole held in place by a pin at each end. This was far too loose, constantly popping out and flying across the room. It was at this point I was looking around for the 'Wand' used to negotiate the wire. It turns out you have to cut a length off this flimsy wire and shape a loop on the end to make up the wand!! After seeing the disappointing child's face and hearing the rubbish buzzer sound my frustration with this thing ended with me introducing it to the bin! Good riddance.

A gift for an eight year old child. Still going strong after constant testing by family members, friends and teachers.
