Snap Circuits - SC-300. The Snap Circuits kits are among the most popular toys on amazon and in our house too. This is one of the best toys I have purchased ever - total value - and the returns on this investment keep coming - in learning, in discovering, in fun - everytime we bring this out.
The instruction manuals are detailed and clear with diagrams that let children build the circuits and models easily (some with a little help from adults) as they follow the step-by-step instructions. The projects range from the simple - a light bulb - to more complex ones like two-way radios. And if your kid is interested and has understood the basic principles of electricity (which they do after making enough of these), they can try out some of their own! And I have to say,when they do, the feeling of accomplishment is wonderful..
The pieces are all sturdy and this kit has lasted many a use over the years for us (I bought this for my kids in 2010) and since then have purchased many of these kits as gifts for friends and family - I know this will be cherished by us and them.
There are many versions of this kit - starting from the SC-100 to SC-750; as well as upgrades to the kits that you can order separately.
So if you are looking for something to gift for a child (of any age!), this is definitely something you cannot go wrong with
For Saturday Snapshot, 6WS, and dVerse
giving thanks for trails to explore...
at others, well, a little grimy
tend to slip into me
and off we go adventuring.
a cool space where abandoned I lie
as my feet run, play, fly
and off they go adventuring..
smooth and coarse
all sorts that I traipse through in lands far
and near. Rest in car-
-petted bliss, feet encased within.
filled with larks,
loris, cranes, flaming flamingos too;
animals in a zoo,
seen them, I’ve, around the world.
day, feet strong
no more, they slide me off;
I say ‘hi’ to shoe-pals, share a laugh
as we settle in for the night.
Off we go,
a new day has begun.
A nice, brisk walk in the morning sun
