5.0 out of 5 stars Good toy, but manual could be much better 29 Feb 2012
By jlm
Style Name:SC-300
Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I got this electronic set for a 10 year old son that likes technology. He loves it. He has done some circuits with me and with his friends. Compared with a set I had as a kid (from Phillips), this set is much easier to mount and sturdy, but the manual of my old set explained much better how each circuit worked. The manual of this set just has a list of projects and does not explain how they work. Unless you can explain the circuits to your child he will not really learn about electronics.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! 28 Dec 2012
Style Name:SC-300
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My 6 year old son just got this from some relatives for Christmas. I am very impressed with the design and build quality of the product and the comprehensive and detailed instructions. This is a bit like "Lego for Electronics" and makes it easy to put together working, interesting projects like a radio receiver, transmitter, water alarm etc. At his age he needs a but of guidance but can do some on his own. Should get years of use out of this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great toy 25 Mar 2013
Style Name:SC-300|Verified Purchase
Bought for my 6 year old after he saw my old 160-in-one! Much more durable. Very simple to use. Does need an adult present for most of it though.

5.0 out of 5 stars for big boys and kids 22 May 2014
Style Name:SC-300|Verified Purchase
I love this kit, do you remember what a transistor, tresistor, capacitor do? Not sure? Well no worries, discover it again with your kids, teach them a little of what is behind the slim oblong glass fronted phone or tablet, how motors and circuits, sensors etc... work.

The kids love it to, with lots of layouts for them to follow, and so easy to click together and take back apart.

Simple and brilliant,

And for grownups I recommend you get yourself an Arduino Uno kit as well to do more advanced stuff and impress the kids even more.

5.0 out of 5 stars wow 17 Dec 2013
Style Name:SC-300|Verified Purchase
this is a great toy, brought for my 6 yr old son who loves building with lego, thought he might have to grow into it but he picked it up straight away and can now build some of the trickiest circuits on his own. Also as there are so many different projects he hasn't got bored with it and as a bonus he is learning whilst playing

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for kid and grownup together 2 Aug 2013
Style Name:SC-300|Verified Purchase
My 9 years-old grandchild fixes the projects himself and has great fun experiencing how they work. It is even more fun to do they together with a grownup who knows both English and physics, e g grandmother. That way we can discuss what happens and we understand better. Great fun!
