No, I am not getting paid to write a review for this toy. I actually found the toy by accident while looking at an educational magazine full of homeschool toys. But, let me tell you what, a toy that can engage my hyper-mile-a-minute kiddo for 4 hours is worth its weight in gold. Seriously. Hubby and I bought this toy for our son for Christmas and now I am wishing I would have bought the more expensive 300 experiment model as my son loves it! It is a snap circuit set. No he cannot electrocute himself (at least he hasn't figured out how to do that yet). The model we purchased on Amazon was $29.99. There is another model that runs about $49.99 and is very similar but has more suggestions and circuts.
When we initially took it out of the box I was a little concerned as the directions looked a bit complicated. However, my son just dove in and looked at the color coded pictures to make his projects.
He made doorbell circuits, fan circuits, lightbulb circuits...you get the picture. He was busy for HOURS!
My son is newly 9 and another friend of mine also bought this for her 8 year old son and told me that it was also a huge hit at her house. I mean, any toy that creates learning and keeps them busy for hours is AMAZING in my book!
