2.0 out of 5 stars Nicely illustrated instructions, Little else 3 Aug. 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Verified Purchase
I was anxious to get this book for my son who is a precocious builder. However, I was disappointed to see that the gadgets you can build were not described at the beginning of the instuctions. The gadget is named, then the building instructions begin. There is no description of what the gadget does, or how it works.
I was pleased to see that most of the items need to make the projects are easy to find, since my son already experiments with electricity. However, starting from scratch will mean a trip to the electronics store for most people.

4.0 out of 5 stars lots of fun 31 July 2000
A Kid's Review - Published on
I like it. It's a pretty tough book. I'm eight years old and I've been able to make almost everything in the book on my own. There's a supply list in the front and we've found most things at Radio Shack. The instructions are kind of easy to follow. It's hard work, but it's worth it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book 5 Jan. 2012
By Adrian I Argueta - Published on
I remember owning this book when I was in grade school. It filled my "building need" when I was 9 years old.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sorry, didn't like it. 10 Nov. 2000
By A Customer - Published on
The things in this book just didn't work for us. The gadgets look great in the book and my son was really excited to make them. But when the battery pack (which is the prerequisite for most of the other projects) didn't work, we started shopping around for another book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for young inventors 18 May 2001
By ralammj - Published on
This is a great book for a simple introduction to electronic gadget building. My son is always building and designing and this is giving him a way to do it with electronics.
