This company seem to have two different size Kits for the 8 to 13 age level.
They charge £14.99 for the Primary Kit which includes 100 experiments
whereas the £29.99 Primary Plus Kit includes 500 experiments.
Anyway on to the Primary Kit which cost us £14.99 - it came in a large box with enough parts to construct over 100 experiments.
The parts were brightly coloured and number coded - which really did help us in the construction - and the bits seemed to be strong.
We have tried 2 of the kits now and my kids think that they are playing a game and having fun,
but at the same time they have been learning about Electronics. This is certainly easier than trying to get them to do their homework.

We experimented with controlling how to make lamps get brighter and got a motor working. Building the flying fan was great fun.
But the kids made a bit too much noise experimenting with electronic sirens.
We had to steer them to some of the quieter projects like building Electric Circuits, Light Emitting Diodes, Learning about different types of Switches and experimenting with Conductors and Insulators. We are now moving on to Series and Parallel Circuits
The teacher at our local school loves these kits because they teach at Key Stage level and are linked to the National Curriculum.Read more ›
On arrival, I had a look through it before I gave it to him. My impression was that it seemed fairly cheaply made. The box itself has fairly poor quality print on it, with noticeable graininess of script and imagery. The building blocks are strips of plastic with snap buttons on the end of them (similar to those that you find on the front of a coat). Electronic components appear roughly soldered on the back of the strips, leaving them open to damage if handled roughly. One of the strips is a dummy strip, which can be used to extend the kit with your own components, but there doesn't appear to be a good method of attaching components to it. It can also be confusing for the child if he accidentally uses the dummy strip in a circuit: it isn't immediately obvious why the circuit won't work. Still, this teaches fault finding skills, so I guess it's kind of a feature. My biggest gripe would be the instruction manual: it seems more oriented towards assisted play, with the parent guiding the child. I would have preferred two sets of instructions: one written appropriately for the the child and one with additional teaching aids for the parent. My nephew is a good reader, so he *could* certainly read the instructions, but he is simply too lazy to do so.
That said, my nephew immediately fell in love with the kit and started playing with it.Read more ›
