I bought this kit for my 6 year old son. He absolutely loves it! All of the components are encapsulated in plastic cases with snaps on them. The kit also comes with a clear plastic assembly board that is labeled with row and column coordinates. The instruction manual contains diagrams of the finished projects. The items are clearly labeled and easy to follow. My son loves being able to put the projects together and see something cool happen. When I first bought the kit, one of the components( the color changing LED) was not working. I called Elenco and they very promptly sent me a replacement part. I am very pleased with that. The manual provides instructions for 182 projects so your child can be busy with this for a long time. I would recommend adult supervision at the beginning especially if your child is younger that the recommended age of 8 to make sure that they are safe around moving parts like the motor and the fan and to make sure that they don't create any short circuits which could damage the parts.
I am very pleased with this product and plan to buy more Snap Circuits kits in the future.

I give it 5 stars with a heads-up on how to use it, realizing it's not perfect. So maybe 4 and a half..

This is a wonderful product. I first tried a couple of experiments with my 6 year old son - making the flying saucer fly, and the lights change with your voice. He was fascinated and wowed and loved it and wanted to play with it over his tablet and video games, which is really saying something!!

I next used it with an 8 year old who I am tutoring in general science. He also loved it instantly and wanted to play with it non-stop! And I want to play with it too!! It is a great idea, and fun to build experiments and play with.

It is a really great interactive, fun, educational and learning device masquerading as a fun toy. What's better than that??

My cautions- while the 8 year old did build circuits on his own, I returned the following week to find batteries reversed and circuits not working. I could not leave my 6 year old son alone with it, for fear he would damage the components.

So there is a minimum age child for whom should not play with it alone. And some experiments don't work or don't work well. I tried the dripping faucet strobe and that didn't work, same with a few others. But even then, it went towards being educational as I spun it as that is what happens with science and scientists- experiments don't always work, things don't always go as planned, go on to the next experiment as a true scientist. And that seemed to inspire the 8 year old and appealed to him.

As for those who say it doesn't really teach electricity or electronics, that is largely up to the parent or adult who is working with the child.

We gave these to 2 of our grandsons, ages 13 and 15, as Christmas gifts. They both spent hours working on them together. They were just what I was looking for--something fun and educational. And they are good quality.

I almost did not order this because the discription stated it was for 8 year olds to 15 year olds. I was buying it for my grandson's 15th birthday and I wanted him to be challenged. Because of his love of music and technology I went ahead and ordered it. To my surpise the box stated it being for 8 to 108 year olds. I thought, okay, maybe this will be a challenge. He just loved it, so that made me happy with purchasing it. Please make that correction in your online discription.

Thanks,
Donna

Oh MY GOODNESS!!!! THis is such an awesome kit, hooking things up so that the lights work or putting it together & hooking it to a music source has been so fun for our son. He loves this set, got a smaller kit last year from his Aunt & this just adds to his interests!!!

I have a 6 year old niece and a 5 year old nephew. I babysit for them a couple of times a week and I'm always looking for fun things to do together. I'm also a returning adult college student and my physics teacher had us put together some snap kits in class. I had so much fun and I knew they would too. I looked here on Amazon and not only found the kits but this Light one and let me tell you...I'm the coolest aunt that ever lived. We have had so much fun and we have only made four of the 176 projects. We packed into the bathroom with no window (for maximum light show viewing) and we went outside and flew our saucers all over the yard. They had so much fun and enjoyed every project and couldn't wait to try another one. I've found a perfect alternative to the electronic gadgets that normally entertain them! THANK YOU ELENCO ELECTRONICS AND AMAZON!!

Ok beginner circuit instructor but if your kid has any kind of understanding of electronics, it won't take them long at all to complete all the circuits and the kit only comes with so many kid friendly circuit "runs" that you can't expand or modify the circuits any without having more "snap on" pieces.

Our grandson loves to build things, but has tired of Legos. So, since he also has an iPod, we thought this would be a great gift,
and it was!
