    Create Working Electronic Circuits

    Snap Circuits comes with over 30 pieces to create 101 different electronic projects. The pieces, which include snap wires, slide switches, an alarm circuit, a music integrated circuit, and a speaker, snap together easily on the included plastic grid--no soldering required. Each piece is numbered and color-coded to make identifying them easy. These components combine to create working circuit boards just like the ones found inside televisions, radios, and other electronic devices.

    Simple, Fun Projects Let Kids Learn While They Play

    With its easy-to-follow instructions, Snap Circuits gives your child a hands-on education in how electrical circuits work to run the everyday devices that they're familiar with. They'll also gain valuable lessons in building and in following instructions. The project manual includes large color illustrations and simple directions for each project.

    The projects include a sound-activated switch, a musical doorbell, a voice-controlled lamp, a flying saucer, and a light police siren. With these projects, children will experiment with things like electric switches, integrated circuits, digital circuits, fuses, and the transformation of circuit sounds into other sounds.

    Grow as You Go
    Because the projects are arranged in order of complexity, kids can build on their skills as they progress through the manual. The lessons start out with a simple electric light and switch project that demonstrates how electricity is turned on and off with a switch. Further along, kids can put together a two-speed fan, create clap-controlled sounds, and more.
    Design Your Own Circuits and Upgrade Your Kit
    Once children have mastered several of the techniques introduced in this kit, they can use the components to experiment and create their own customized circuits and electronic devices. The Snap Circuits Jr. SC-100 can also be upgraded to the Snap Circuits SC-300, Snap Circuits Pro, or Snap Circuits Extreme with the purchase of a UC-30, UC-40, UC-60 upgrade kits, respectively. Kids will enjoy additional parts, manuals, and projects that'll take their kit--and their fun--to the next level.
    Snap Circuits Jr. SC-100 requires two AA batteries, which are not included.

    Product Description

    Snap Circuits Jr. Contains over 30 parts. Build over 100 exciting projects. Snap Circuits makes learning electronics easy and fun!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great present 12 May 2013
    Style Name:SC-100|Verified Purchase
    We bought this for our son's 7th birthday.

    As soon as he opened the present at 10am he played with it all day until the time he went to bed. It is well built, has over 30 parts, and each of the 100 projects are explained in the A4 booklet. Its sturdy and not too fiddly that a 7 year old needs to keep asking for your help every 5 minutes.

    We did see some alternatives to this, but as they didn't allow you to create as many projects as this one, we thought they were overpriced. The same manufacturer (snap circuits) make kits with even more parts, and we have already discussed buying one of the more advanced models. They also make Upgrade kits too, so you can purchase only what you need instead. We were really happy, and in our opinion this present would be suitable for 6 - 8 years olds.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent educational toy 28 April 2013
    By Jlynch
    Style Name:SC-100|Verified Purchase
    Bought this for my 5 year old daughter who is in love with this toy. She can navigate each project with just a little input from me. While she doesn't understand all of the reasoning behind each one, she will with time. In one day she has learnt that metal conducts electricity and has built the first 15 projects. Excellent value for money. Love it!

    My grandson just loves this. It may seem expensive but is excellent for understanding circuits, and can be used with other sets. Very educational and fun, solo or with a friend.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Snap Ciruits 2 July 2013
    Style Name:SC-100|Verified Purchase
    Really really cool little set. I bought this for my niece, who is 5 and she loves it and can do it pretty well with adult help. It is lovely and colourful, as each part of the set is a different colour. This makes it engaging and it looks a little bit space age. It is brilliantly designed so all of the parts are clearly labelled, with a numbered grid and easy pictures to follow so that you know where to put each part. Everything just pops into place and is easy for little fingers to do. I know nothing about circuits, but I could easily follow the instructions and on the smaller circuits so can my niece, so don't be put off by the idea of a circuit. The only one problem is that one of the pieces requires a small bulb that pops into place, not a screw in one, this is not provided and I have found it quite difficult to find one that pushes in rather than screws in and that is the right size- so we can't make the circuits involving a bulb yet. This really should have been provided in my opinion. Apart from that, it is great.

    I bought this for our Grandson's 5th birthday although the age range which is given is for older. After making a few circuits with his Mum and Dad he was soon able to get the idea of what to do on his own. A good purchase.
