I purchased this for my 7 years olds birthday in September. He and his 9 year old brother have made over 100 of the circuits already and done the experiments as well. My 9 year old likes it so much I can actually get him to read the instruction! Great toy for any kid that loves to build things!

I'm an adult who loves to learn hands on. I have been wanting to learn about electronics for years. So, I was pleased when I found Snap Circuits. Your not to old for them after the age of 18. So,they also have advanced ones.

The motion detector is a great starter kit, but the info sheet which comes with it does not really help much. Colorful, yes, but descriptive, no. It doesn't really tell what things do...

My only other qualm is that the grid is too small. Now this set, you can build it off grid. Kind of tricky though.

Conclusion: Great if you son/daughter or you want to check out and see if there is any interest in electronics for real.

I would recommend getting the full kit instead of this "project" oriented kits. Once the few projects have been completed, it's not much fun. The larger kit is a better deal and much more fun. Seller shipped on time and I received the product in good condition.

we bought the full snap circuit set for our son last year, he so loved this toy. So this year we bought a couple of additions, again he loved it. This toy has so many different possiblities, he plays with it often and creats his own inventions!

Snap Circuits are an easy, safe, fun way to introduce kids to the innards of electrical stuff. All the kits contain pieces that work together, like Legos. Our 9-yr-old prefers them to Legos. We have enjoyed this motion detector, and have now assimilated the components into our Snap Circuits collection. Elenco Electronics is helpful if you have problems, and it is easy to order new or replacement parts from them when your kid wears out the jump wires or fries a transistor.

The Snap Circuits Motion Detector is a convenient and inexpensive kit. The pamphlet provided with it doesn't really have much on what each component in the kit does; it's more toward building the different projects and what they should do.

The components provided in the set work like this:

NPN Transistor - Acts like an electrical switch when a small voltage is applied to it.

Alarm IC - Provides different sound effects depending on the three inputs used and outputs the audio signal to the speaker.

Motion Detector - This is the primary component of the kit and detects motion by changes in infrared radiation (basically thermal energy).

9V Battery Box - Takes a standard 9 volt battery and converts the voltage down to a steady 5 volts.

Speaker - Used to hear the audio from the alarm IC.

The kit is easy to assemble and can be completed in minutes. The way the circuit works when completed is the following:

When the switch is turned on, the power supplied by the 9 volt battery box powers the motion detector. When motion is detected, the motion detector triggers the NPN transistor on which connects power to the alarm IC which sounds and the resulting sound is heard through the speaker.

We have a few snap circuits kits and this is a nice addition so that you don't have to use up so many batteries. And the price - great!
