I coincidentally bumped into one of the owners of Elenco a few years back and they seem to be really good people too, if that helps.
On the good side, it's got everything you need to introduce someone to the basic components used in circuits. It comes with a manual that is well-written and explains a lot about electronics and electricity. It goes through switches, resistors, capcitors, diodes, transistors, inductors, transformers, and speakers. The projects take you from basic light-the-LED stuff to building a radio and basic logic circuits. It really hammers the basics and theory, so some of the early projects are a bit boring for younger learners, but hey you can always skip ahead, right?
The biggest negative is that it's made of cardboard, so it's a bit fragile and flimsy; the manual, likewise, is printed on cheap paper and gets torn up easily. Considering the price, I can't expect much.
I bought this for my 10-yo who expressed an interest in electronics, as an inexpensive way to see if the interest was more than passing. So far so good.
We've also used snap circuits with our older kids, but between the two I like this format better, especially for kids in the middle-school age range for whom snap circuits seem a little childish.
As stated above, this is my daughter's favorite gift. She has been working with this thing nearly constantly for two days now. The only drawback is that she's going to run through the 50 projects too quickly! She's never shown a specific interest in electronics, but she does like science and computers. Now I just need to find another one with more projects and a bit more complexity!
