Electronics are fascinating and really a lot of fun to work with. If you’re unfamiliar with them though, they can be a bit intimidating and seem a bit dangerous for children to be involved with. Snap Circuits 3D Illumination Discovery Kit lets you play with circuitry without any special tools.
This kit includes supplies to build over 150 projects, all by snapping the pieces together. You don’t need any special tools in order to create anything. Just some time and the desire to explore. There are 50 snap-on parts that work together to create all of the projects.
This set allows you to build in three dimensions, instead of just a flat surface, giving you greater depth to your work and more help in visualization of complex projects. Sure, this set is simple but if your child (or you, toys are for everyone) becomes more comfortable with building connections, when they upgrade to the big kid sets, they’ll be more willing to try new things and solve more complex problems. Snap Circuits 3D Illumination Electronics Discovery Kit is $45.49.
