698-in-1 Snap on Electronic Project Kit
This massive experiment kit guides you through 698 different experiments. Yes, that’s correct – 698 different experiments! It uses a unique baseboard and snap-together system so you can explore the world of electronic circuits without any tools, soldering, or experience! Build a light sensitive alarm clock, an electronic birthday candle, an electronic organ, and so much more. Use your imagination and see if you make up something new!
It really is as easy to use as it looks. Components are colour-coded, numbered and where appropriate have electronic symbols and voltage ratings silk-screened on them. The whole thing is held together with poppers, like those you find on kids clothes!
The book itself has colored diagrams to assist with easy assembly. My eldest (five and a half years old) was able to pick up the book and assemble a kit without assistance. No fiddling with screws or springs, and no frustration when things didn’t work out as intended.

He intuitively worked out how to open the circuit to stop the noise, just by disconnecting one of the conductors.
That led to a conversation about open and closed circuits, and finally to him wandering around the room connecting things to a simple LED circuit to see if they conducted electricity well or not.
I’ve never seen him this excited about anything electronics-related before. It is really heart-warming to see him getting into something I loved as a child, too.
