I work as an educator at a small museum and we bought 6 of these radios to use for a program based around life in the 1940's and 1950's. I have to tell you that the kids absolutely adored this activity. We had ages ranging from 4 to 12 and every single group loved putting together those radios. They were engaged and actively involved not just in the activity itself but in learning about why and how it worked. We've brought this activity back a few times and every time it's a hit. I always get kids asking me if they can keep the radios or where they can get one of their own.

The only thing I can think of that's negative about this product is that some of the parts are small and can get lost easily. However, in all the times I've done this activity we've never had a part go missing.

Even if they lose interest after a few weeks, I think the enjoyment they get out of the radio is well worth the price of admission.

We purchased the Snap Circuits Jr. kit a couple months ago (Christmas present) for our 5 year old son because we thought he'd enjoy it. We underestimated how much: we thought he'd like it, but he LOVES it-- to the point of obsession. He spends hours a day building circuits and really has learned quite a bit. He expressed excitement and enthusiasm for acquiring other kits (he's built every one of the 101 projects in the SC100 kit at least a dozen times at this point...). So when it came time to acknowledge a job well done, I thought this little kit would be a nice reward (some of the snap circuits kits are very expensive; these mini kits seem quite reasonably priced). He was really excited to build a radio because some of the parts are different than what he has in the Jr kit- specifically the adjustable resistor, amplifier, and the FM receiver (plus a higher voltage (4.5v) battery, it runs on 3 AA) they may be redundant for other kits, I'm not sure.
In any case, he was very excited, and was able to assemble a working radio in a short time (I helped him the first time, but he subsequently was able to take apart and reassemble by himself no problem). He was delighted. He was really excited about the additional projects, too (there are 3 other circuits you can build from this kit) but the directions are very difficult to understand. The radio circuit is depicted pictorially (as are all 100 circuits in the SC100 kit) but for some reason, the additional projects in this kit are not pictured; there are just written directions and they are difficult to understand. My son is a very proficient reader, so that's not it (even I was having a hard time deciphering the instructions, and I have a college degree).

My 8-year-old son loved this toy but my son is a "builder". He wants to be an inventor when he grows up and will build something from the trash can or from the backyard. We saw this at the Smithsonian and he loved it so I got it for his birthday. He loved it and put it together right away. of course once you put it together the fun doesn't last long. He played with it at least 2 weeks straight -- which at 8 yrs old is pretty darn good. He goes back to it now an again and still enjoys it.

My eight year old grandson was excited to find that he could really construct this radio. It has held up to a two year old and a puppy "exploring" it. I would strongly recommend this toy.

I got this for my son and my two boys (ages 6 and 7) had a good time putting it together. I had to give them a little guidance but not too much. They enjoyed assembling it and went to bed tonight listening to their new radio. The parts appear to be durable and of good quality and snap together easily.

Have purchased several of the Snap Circuits products of the past two years. All have been essential to teaching our
child about the flow of electricity. Our 6 year old may not play with them every day, but they are always used throught the year. We were particularly suprised how much our son loved the radio. Yes its only been a week but a day hasn't gone by where he hasn't listened to it. He loves the fact you can change the station. The fact that he trys to redirect and recreate a new path for the flow, whether its right or wrong is the main reason why we buy these products. We will not hesitate to purchase more of their products in the future.Snap Circuits FM Radio

We were looking for a crystal radio to build for my grandchildren, The reviews for these were not good, We settled on this FM radio kit because of the reviews. The reviews were right on. One word - be sure to read the instructions the picture will not do the job unless you are an EE.

This snap circuit FM kit is a neat little project. I admit my child was able to assemble it in about 10 min. The sound quality is ok, but keep in mind that it more a learning experience than a quality radio.
