Why Snap Circuits is a Great Way to Introduce Your Child to Electronics

snap circuits5 Snap circuits for kids is a brilliant way to introduce youngsters to concepts about electriciy and electronics in a systematic, but more importantly fun and safe way.  The easy-to-handle snap-on pieces simplify what might otherwise appear to be an overwhelming array of electronic components, making this a hugely child-friendly toy with which to teach really quite complex ideas.  It is a toy aimed at children of 8 and above, but with patient adult assistance children of a much younger age will be able to access this exciting and intriguing toy.

The Snap Circuits Junior kit consists of over a hundred pieces and is accompanied with easy-to-follow instructions for over 100 exciting different projects.  Children are able to follow these clearly illustrated instructions with minimal adult assistance.  Projects are introduced in order of difficulty, allowing children to gradually build on key skills and concepts.  One of the nicest features of these Snap Circuits Jr kits and the follow on electronic kits from Elenco,  is that many of the projects can be completed within a short time frame, children are able to gain a sense of  accomplishment and achievement early on and are spurred on to further enjoyment and exploration.  This feature also makes it easy for parents to find time to explore with their children.

Among the many projects, children will be able to make a sound-activated switch, a musical doorbell and a voice-controlled lamp – experimenting with concepts such as the transformation of circuit sounds into other sounds.  The can also light a police siren or launch a flying saucer!  Like many of the toys that get the thumbs up from Raising Sparks this is one that will grow with your child.  Further extension kits are available so that enthusiastic children can explore an even greater range or electronic experiments.  Upgrade kits will take the fun and learning to a whole new level.

Snap Circuits for kids have won many awards including Dr. Toy 100 Best Children’s Products, Dr Toy Best Educational Products, The National Parenting Center-Seal of Approval and the super product award from Grandkids Gift Guide.  The only downside we can think of is that this fantastic toy doesn’t come supplied with the necessary two AA batteries!
