Snap Circuits Jr.
Posted 10/13/2009 by Vicki Davis - GRANDPARENT
Rating: 5

I gave this electronics learning set to my grandson for his fifth birthday. He loves it! After doing a few sample projects together, I explained how the board and the pictures are marked with the same grid and that he could use that information to do the projects by himself. He immediately set about working on #5 and with some trial and error, but no frustration, he completed it without my help. He was elated and ready for more. Although he is only 5, it is clear that with over 100 projects of varying degrees of complexity, he will enjoy this set for several years to come.

Super Snap!
Posted 8/14/2008 by Ruth A Rood
Rating: 5

My mom bought this for my 8 year old son for his birthday. I love how simple the directions are. He loves how quickly he can make something work! It is clear to understand, and he sees how the circuit works and how to fix it if it doesn't! I would highly recommend this activity to anyone (within the age range) looking for some independant scientific experimentation and fun!

8 year old grandson readily "took" to this toy and assembled several circuit configurations rapidly. He thoroughly enjoys the game and looks forward to figuring out more configurations for this item.

My 5 Year Old is Addicted!
Posted 9/21/2009 by Brad Williams
Rating: 5

My five-year-old son wants to do a few of the 101 projects every morning and every evening. The brief descriptions of voltage and current and load etc are very good and appropriate for children. It will greatly help however if the parent already understands these concepts and can fill in where the project explanations are thin, and can for example explain exactly what is happening differently between a series circuit and parallel circuit. (The parallel circuit drops 3V on each branch, but the batteries will wear out sooner because of the higher current flow -- this is not explained in the notes.) The three integrated circuits are also not explained in terms of what each pin is for, so this requires some deduction which someone with no electronics experience at all will be hard-pressed to perform. But still I want to stress that my son loves this. We have had some other electronics kits but this is by far the easiest to use and provides a huge variety of experimentation. We are going so fast, even with my five year old, I realize we should have gotten the 300-project version!

The 8th grade grandson set to work immediately, trying to burn out the motor with multiple numbers and types of batteries. He failed to disable Snap Circuit Jr. I knew this was a good toy. Next, there were efforts to weigh down the spinning wheel, to prevent its turning. Nope, the toy still worked. The 3rd grade grandson tried other experiments and played with it a long time, returning to it throughout the day. This is a good toy, strong and interesting. Well done.

We purchased this set for my 10-year-old nephew who is spending spring break with us. He spent most of yesterday playing with it and got it back out right after breakfast this morning to play with some more. I'm wishing now that we had bought a larger set, as spring break is turning into one long rain fest. But so far, he's been happily and profitably occupied.

I purchased this as a Christmas present for my 5-yr old son. We've had so much fun making all the different projects and learning about electricity, open & closed circuits, resistors and amplifiers that I purchased two more as presents! It is an easy and FUN way to introduce the concept of electricity to children. Both of my boys (I also have a 3-yr old) were explaining concepts to their friends as we played - hands on learining! I would highly recommend it to anyone with inquisitive children.

I bought this for my 6 year old son on his 5th birthday. So he's been enjoying it for a year now. It's was just a bit challenging for him at the beginning. Now he completes the projects in no time. He likes to show it to his friends too. I am happy with my choice. Will highly reccomend to any one trying to develop multiple skills and knowledge in their children.

A huge hit!
Posted 8/16/2011 by Amanda Huber - RELATIVE
Rating: 5

My 7 year-old nephew loves it! I gave it to him for his birthday and he had done 60 of the circuits by the next day! I'll probably need to get him the non-Jr version for Christmas, this was such a big hit. The only slight downside (other than it "only" having about 100 circuits described, but it's more his enthusiasm that's making that seem like too few) from a learning toys perspective is that the circuit building is great fun but he didn't always get the point the circuit was trying to make (what a resistor does, what a circuit is, etc). We did read him the text for most circuits, ask him what changed that circuit from the previous one, and other reinforcement techniques, but I'm not sure he absorbed much of that because he was hurrying to build the next circuit. That may be a product of his age too, as he's on the young end for this activity. The doing will teach him better than us reading the text to him ever could, but something to help convey the highlights like summaries of what we've learned from the last 10 circuits could be a nice thing to add. However, the lack of it didn't detract from his enjoyment one bit!

Love the Circuit board
Posted 8/21/2009 by Mother of 3 boys
Rating: 5

I bought this for my son's 8th Birthday. He saw it at a friend's house and loves it. All three boys (ages 4, 6 and 8) love to play with the circuit board and make things happen with electricity. It is just the right size, not too many pieces, but they can turn on a light bulb, ring a bell and make a fan go and their favorite, make the fan fly into the air and back down. My oldest son plays with it for hours.

Snap Circuits JR great gift for my 6 year old
Posted 7/19/2009 by Carl
Rating: 5

Snap Circuits Jr was a great gift for my 6 year old boy. I walked him through the first project and helped him follow the directions. He took off from there and did the first several projects in the book. I thought the written directions and pictures were at his level and he could figure most of the projects out. This is a great Summer Brain activity while his little Brother naps. He likes to show his accomplishments to the whole family.

great science project
Posted 6/9/2009 by Inhan Lee
Rating: 5

We found this product at the local science olympiad event. My boys (8 and 9 years old) both enjoyed so much that they wouldn't leave the table where it was used as an activity. I wrote down the product and ordered it as a prize for them to participate the science olympiad. My 8 year old boy was impatient to get it delivered and surprizingly delighted with the fast delivery from Fat Brain. I had to set a time limit for the boys to play with the circuits. After woking on several projects, 8 year old one was making his own circuit using copper wire: I had to warn him the wire needs to be insulated with other materials. He said "Still, I won't be electricuted since the voltage is so low". An extra feature I like about this toy is that it shows real shape of resistance, etc., so that I can teach them how to recognize them in the real world. Highly recommend it.

My son received this toy as a gift when he was 5-1/2 years old. He was able to follow the instructions with help. As he got older, he followed the instructions on his own and built his own circuits. The projects are fun and age appropriate. Some of our favorite projects were: make a light bulb turn on, make a siren noise, make it play the "birthday song", fly a disk, and draw circular designs. We have given this toy to many other kids (ages 6-8) as birthday gifts.

I bought this set for my children and also got it as a present for their friends and cousins. It was a big success. The set includes 100 experiments and gives a wide opportunity of playing with the circuits. Thanks to the special units (sound detector, music, ...) even relatively simple circuit can offer a big effect, something kids usually appreciate.

When my daughter's third-grade class started learning about electricity, I remembered Snap Circuits. I bought Snap Circuits Jr for my daughter so that her interest in electronics/electricity would continue and she could have some fun learning more about it. Her 13-year-old sister also loves Snap Circuits, and she and her friends spend lots of time building different projects. The pieces snap together easily, the directions are very easy to understand, and the projects are interesting and fun. This is a great product that both my girls enjoy. We'll probably get the larger set now so that we can build even more interesting electronic projects!

Even better than anticipated!
Posted 1/7/2012 by Mom of 3
Rating: 5

My 4 1/2 year old son is very interested in anything 'engineerish'. He loves puzzles, gears, things that you put together, etc. I was so excited when I saw this product, but was nervous I might be so excited for it that it would disappoint me in the end. Not so. It was probably his favorite Christmas present. Here is why I love this product: 1) User-friendly and intuitive. I picked up on how to use it immediately and was able to show my son with just a few circuits. He still needs a little help with where to start on the circuit board, but he can very easily see what pieces should be put where, and what needs to change if he does it wrong the first time. 2) Instant reward. My son could do some of the simple circuits to very quickly feel like he was really doing something cool (making the light go, the siren go off, the propeller fly away). Sometimes things that will hold his attention like this have such a long wait time between when we start and finish that, while he likes the result, it's a little anti-climactic at the end because it's taken so long. This is different, it probably only takes a couple of minutes from start to finish for the easier circuits. 3) Pieces are ergonomic and safe. I've heard others say that they had something similar back in the day and they had wires popping out, etc. This is totally safe, all the wires are covered well and easy to snap in. 4) Well built. I have also heard others say they bought a different brand of this same thing and it has a cardboard bottom that bends and eventually just falls apart. This has a hearty plastic bottom and the pieces are well built. 5) It keeps my son occupied with something that stretches his brain AND imagination. There's always something new to do, to think about, etc. I really couldn't be happier with this toy. My son wants to do something new with it the moment the last circuit is built!

My grandson's favorite gift from me ever
Posted 7/14/2010 by Barbara - GRANDPARENT
Rating: 5

I wasn't sure how well this set would go over or how sturdy it would be. Thanks to his scientist dad, my grandson is into science and electronics, so maybe that's why being under 8 was no problem. The first day we did many projects together; by the second, he was creating his own. He has spent the 6 days since receiving it playing with it first thing in the morning and last thing at night--and many minutes in between. The set is very sturdy; only the little fan seems as if it could be higher quality, even though it has to be light to work properly. Looking forward to buying him a more advanced set in the future.

Well, my sons opened this Christmas morning and put it aside. My 10 year old said he thought it might be "lame". When he opened it he was so excited to put it together and make the different things he spent 2hours sitting playing with it. The great thing is that his little brother, who is 7, sat right next to him and helped. It is such a pleasure to see them play together with this great toy. I know that they can use the knowledge they gain from playing with the circuits in Science class at school.

Bought for 6 year old twin grandsons' visit this summer. Beautifully packaged, clear instructions, durable materials. We and the boys LOVE this! I've worked with a children's museum as volunteer and know how frustrating the circuitry stations can be in terms of sturdiness of connections and wires that come loose from contacts. The design of the snap circuits and the clear, step by step (level by level) directions make success a certainty. For our guys, there was NO FRUSTRATION! Initially the boys worked with one adult to complete a project, but after 3 or 4, they were able to do on their own. I'm sure that we'll buy even more Snap Circuits for more complex projects as the guys mature.

Our 7-year-old grandson loved this toy! He made the first few projects with his Dad and then struck out on his own, learning about electrical circuits as he went. It sang Happy Birthday to the dog, flashed a light, sounded a siren. But the favorite so far: the flying saucer! which flew up over the kitchen table again and again throughout the day as he progressed through the book. He was still playing with it when we returned the next day. This is a great toy for fun, learning and creativity.

Our seven year old just loves this toy! Not only did he start racing through the projects, but in the first 48 hours he is already making up circiuts of his own. Very well constructed and easy to use instructions with great graphics allows kids to work on their own or with a parent. We will order the larger kit soon.

My son really likes this toy and his brothers were very anxious to have him give them a turn with it. After helping him with one or two set ups, he was able to do it on his own. The instructions were clear and explained the parts of a circuit. The only issue is the fan flies right off when the circuit is completed. Maybe it is supposed to do that, because Fat Brain sent me another one, but it did the same thing. The boys thought is was great fun to catch it. My son is 7 years old and this toy was very appropriate for him to use on his own.

I bought this for my 7 yr old daughter's b-day. I wanted a toy that would foster an interest in science and provide learning while being fun and rewarding- this toy does all of that. My 7 year old loves it, and her 9 yr old sister wants to play with it just as much. This toy is easy to use. The directions are simple for them to follow. They do not need my help to make the experiments work. They have both tried to build their own experiment. I will be buying another for my nephew in a few months on his b-day. Highly recommend this product.

Gave this to my grandsons, ages 7 and 9 for Christmas. They brought it to show me what they could do and seemed to enjoy it. I got the impression they had used all the features and found them fun to play with. Even their 5-year-old brother was proud to show me that he could make some things work. I felt that because of the limited number of options, this toy would not be one they would take out over and over again because they have so many toys, but I felt they really learned something from it.

My grandaughter played with snap circuits all day after she first received it. It fadded off with the busy-ness of her life and she uses it less now. She enjoys it immensely when she does use it though, and more to the point, she learns a great deal from it. It is a toy that I also enjoy "playing" with her and that is very important. (Tea parties can get a little boring!) I highly recommend this toy and the two of us are looking forward to the more advanced edition in the future.

Well made and lots of fun!
Posted 1/3/2012 by Anne N. in RI
Rating: 5

We got this for our five year old daughter as a fun way to explore electronics and build cool things. The parts seem well made and fit well together. The instructions are clear and all projects that we did all worked. It was fun for the whole family and I like that our daughter who is very much into pink girlish stuff was using the set by herself and proudly brought it with her. While it's recommended for older kids, it seems fine to use at an earlier age. The snaps aren't too hard and the instructions for the earlier projects are understandable at age 5 or six. Most of the projects are more challenging and require adult help or are for ages 8+. There are also descriptions on what each part does and how the set works that are interesting for older kids and adults. The only downside is that the instructions warn you not to create short circuits as it can break the parts. The instructions on what a short circuit is are limited and my physics knowledge is too rusty to judge. So this has put a damper on the kids just freely creating a set up with the parts. We've let them do it without the batteries but they'd love to see what would happen with a battery. Maybe when they understand they system better they'll be able to judge.

We purchased Snap Circuits Jr. for our 6 year-old granddaughter hoping it would spark her interest in science. The results are amazing, she is now absolutely enthralled by how electricity works. The step by step instructions are easy to follow, everything is color coded and labeled, and once completed the result is instant success. The complexity of the projects is incremental and builds on previous experience so the challenge of trying something new is not overwhelming. The quality of the materials is also excellent and will withstand lots of use. This turned out to be one of her favorite Christmas gifts.

My son (5yrs) is still alittle young for the toy, and does not yet read. He can still follow the diagrams and enjoys putting the projects together. Ultimately, he sees it more like a puzzle that has a party trick once completed. At this point, his attention is not held enough for him to occupy him along like leggos might, but we enjoy doing it together, and hopefully he will get more out of it further down the road.

I have given my 7 year old grandson Snap Circuits Jr. I did the first two demonstrations with he and his 5 year old brother. My husband has enthusiastically continued from there. I love the way each piece is numbered and has a home in the box. They do need help at this point, but this is set up so any adult will enjoy giving assistance. Each demonstration is a progression in learning and I foresee them growing into the additional parts and pieces available to expand this set. This is simplicity in learning.

My son had seen this toy last year and recognized it when we were sent one of your catalogs. He picked it out and I had my parents give it to him for xmas. He plays with the Snap Circuits and one other toy the most. He just goes back and forth from the lego set to the Snap Circuits and back again. I love it because it is a "toy," but he is learning and reading the instruction manual and using his brain. We may get the next level up next year. thank you for giving an alternative to all the mind numbing, movie related, and violent video game toys that are out there pushed onto these boys day after day. Our boys deserve better and your intelligent and fun toys help that.

Our son's goal is to get through the entire book but he's been setting up his own circuits too which is great! This was one of his favorite Christmas gifts! He loves the propeller and is so impressed with being able to get the lights on and to hear all the sounds he can make! GREAT PRODUCT!

My son (6 yrs old) picked this toy from a catolog with some encouragrement from me so I wasn't sure if he'd really like it. What a hit! Although he needs a bit of help to read each 'project', he got the hang of it right away and he has been doing his own circuits as much as following the ones in the the book. A great gift!

Our 6 year old son LOVES this game! It looked a bit daunting at first, but he took his time, followed directions and completed several of the projects with limited help from mom and dad. He loved the fact that he actually made something "work" which is a huge accomplishment for a 1st grader. It's a winner!

My son received this toy for Christmas and we have had a great time building the projects. It is an easy way to learn the basics of electricity (for both of us) and building parallel circuits, circuits in series, etc. My one complaint is that the product should include teaching material on the topics and not require you to purchase it online. Great educational toy!

My six year old loves playing with Snap Circuits, jr. I love it because, the directions and sample circuits given are easy to copy. My six year old is so excited to complete the circuits alone, and then show me what he can do. He feel so independent! He likes making the sirens, lights and fans go! Wonderful product that fosters independence.

I knew the Snap Circuits toy was right up my son's alley when I purchased it however I had no idea he would love it so much. It was incredable to watch him follow the directions to build a circut that lit a lightbulb and watch his proud face as he watched his accomplishment. Only then to disassemble it and move on to another project. This toy has endless possibilities, easy to follow directions that get harder as you learn to build your own circuts. I will be buying an advanced kit in the future.

My grandson is 5 and even tho the age on the snap circuits, jr said 8, it was something he could do with an adult. I am told the main reason is because the pictures are 2 dimentional not 3-D. He was easily able to follow the pictures to create the project.

We bought this for our five year old grandson and he loves it! The first thing he built by himself then he and my husband sat together and had a ball making one thing after another. It seems like the instructions are clear enough that a five year old can figure some of them out on their own which is good critical thinking. Our daughter likes it so much she sent a link to your website to a few of her friends that have young boys.

I bought this for my 5 year old daughter. When I received the shipment I was concerned because the box said ages 8+, but my 5 year old loves it. The instructions are clear, and my daughter can follow the pictures well enough to put the projects together herself with help from a grownup. She especially enjoys the alarm and music chips. As she gets older she will be able to learn more about the science behind it. This isn't a toy for every child. My 7 year couldn't care less about it. But a child who enjoys building with blocks and learning about electricity will enjoy it.

Our six-year-old first grade son LOVES this toy. He received it as a Christmas gift and has not put it down since. He is naturally very interested in science and chemistry. (He already has his own microscope and makes his own slides and performs simple chemistry experiments.) This toy was a perfect fit for him. At first we helped him build the circuits and now he is doing everything on his own. He is even inventing his own circuits. He is constantly playing with this and is always wanting to show us his latest new circuit that he has invented. I am already planning to take this kit into my fifth grade classroom when I am teaching about simple electric circuits. My students (10 and 11 yr olds) will have a ball with this.

With this toy, he can seel actual results of his efforts, and with over 100 items to build, he will never get bored with this. I highly recommend this, and when my other grandson gets a bit older, you can bet I will be buying this product again.

An excellent product. From what I have read the toy has recieved awards and I say they are well deserved. The toy is very well built. The pieces are very sturdy and really snap together properly. The instruction manual, which I personally believe to be the the most important part of the toy, is very simple and easy to use. By following in order the different projects that can be created you learn step by step the basics of electronics. Overall we are very happy and indeed impressed with the quality and ingenuity of the product. I would definately recommend it, and do plan on moving on to the more advanced versions.

I bought this as a Christmas gift for my nephew, who is going to be eight in a few weeks. He called me yesterday to tell me that he had already put together 17 circuits - all by himself - and thought the gift was "really cool" - his words, not mine. My brother (his father) then got on the phone and told me that as soon as my nephew opened the box, he started putting things together and was completely enthralled with it for hours. It is definitely a hit and I'm already thinking of expanding the set he got for Christmas with an additional purchase for his birthday.

Excellent Toy for Tinkering Minds!

Rating: 5

My son is 8 and has a love for science and mechanics in general. He LOVED this toy. Out of all of his Chrismas presents, he said that this one was his favorite, and has asked for one of the bigger Snap Circuit kits for his birthday. This gift was very age appropriate, the diagrams in the book are extremely easy to follow, and he loves being able to learn and tinker with some of the basic fundamentals of electricity. This product is sturdy, labeled well, easy to use, and gets 2 big thumbs up from me and my son. Many of the experiments aren't exactly super cool and action packed, but my son could care less. He just loves the fact that he can build the circuits and they work. He was thrilled about learning the principles behind the more mundane activities, and being able to produce the effects for himself. Don't get me wrong, there are plenty of cool activities in the book, as well. After he did several diagrams and got the fundamentals down, he started designing his own circuits, and he LOVED that! I highly recommend this toy; it's well worth the money! Great toy at a great price; excellent value!

My 6 yr old son and we walked him through doing the first 3-4 projects. Not only did he get the hang of it and enjoyed seeing how electricity flows and makes things work, but as was probably the intention, it spawned other questions about all the gadgets involved - the fan and siren and light bulb. His dad played with it more than he did that first day! It is a fantastic toy, well worth the money. He hasn't stopped playing with it. The only thing I'd caution is to watch out for toddlers getting hold of these parts. Not only is it dangerous for them, but if you loose a part, you won't be able to do a lot of the projects. I'll be researching how to get spares as my 6 year old is still learning about being careful with toys. I have already recommended this to friends and family.

It's great to see my grandson using his head, hands & his imagination. I like the idea that he is learning while he is playing and he doesn't even know he's learning. He will, I'm sure, be enjoying many more hours of educational play. He will use, many times over, what he learns, from just this one toy.

"The best Hanukkah present ever"
Posted 12/17/2009 by Laurel Crown
Rating: 5

I purchased "Snap Circuits Jr." for my 9 year old son for Chanukkah. It arrived within a few days along with a few other things I ordered for my son & daughter (despite an email message from Fatbraintoys.com that it might be delayed due to bad weather). My son has been playing with it nonstop since he received it 3 days ago. He's built many of the 100+ designs in the manual as well as experimenting himself with different arrangements. Once he figured out the basic mechanisms, he started building on the basic designs, modifying them to test out various hypotheses. He's constantly calling me over to where he is playing to show me what he's built and to explain how they work and why different things are happening. He told me yesterday that this is "the best Hanukkah present ever." My only complaint is that the presence of this product in our home has hindered our ability to get out the door to school in the morning (smile). This is a wonderful open-ended toy for a child who is curious and capable of experimenting once given some basic instruction.

Homeschooling Parent

Rating: 5

My children and I absouletly LOVE Snap Circuits Jr. As soon as we opened the package, both my 8 year old daughter and 5 year old son were immediately excited about it. We sat down right away and built the first three circuits. They were fairly easy to do and the directions were clear. My son, even though he is 5, is extremely interested in it and wants to make his own projects. Due to the chance he could ruin pieces of this set, I have let him know that this is a toy that has to be done with an adult. I am sure this toy will be even more fun for him once is is older and able to read the directions for himself.

Fantastic Toy!
Posted 1/7/2008
Rating: 5

My 6-year old son is very good at building LEGO sets, but once the spaceship is assembled, the challenge is over. Some LEGO sets fall apart easily, or are too fragile for a 6-year-old's idea of fun. This set offers him and his 8 year old cousin a set of projects that are built following simple diagrams, and ALSO fun to play with and improvise. They built a fort then built an alarm for it with snap circuits.

Great Toy!
Posted 1/7/2008 by CH Griffin
Rating: 5

My eight year old son really liked this toy from the the first time he saw it and spent quite a bit of time creating different circuits, although he had never heard of the toy before and it was not on his must have list. He plays with it often. He is learning a lot about electronics and how to complete the circuits to make the bulb light up, or have the police siren sound, etc. The toy comes with a book containing 101 pre-designed projects, or the child can design his/her own. I would highly recommend it for children 8 years old and older, and especially potential and budding electronics techies. Parents, this is one toy that you do not have to spend hours putting togther before your child can enjoy it.

Our 10-year-Old Nephew's

We bought this as a gift for our 10-year-old nephew who has every toy under the sun. After he opened the Snap Circuits Jr kit, he sat down and played with it all night. (His 8-yr-old brother looked longingly at the kit and said he wished he could build with it too.) During our dinner (and well after), he'd build the different projects and proudly show them to us. He thanked us over and over for this gift and said it was his favorite. It was such a hit with our nephew!

Nice Kit, Quite A Leap From The Old Electronic Kits
Posted 12/30/2007 by Mark
Rating: 5

I grew up with the traditional electronic kits. With the tangle of wires, the little metal springs to fuss with, and so many broken circuits. You could never find the wire that wasn't quite touching the spring. This kit is a total re-think of electronic kits. The snaps are really the trick.

Snap Circuits Jr. A Giant Hit

My 8 year old son loves to build things. I thought he would be interested in the Snap Circuits, and I was right. He spent hours building as many different things as he could. (I appreciate that the volume on the noise-generating projects was quite low). He only stopped when it was time for bed. This is sure to generate more interest in how things work.

What An Awesome Gift For A Busy, Brainy 7 Year Old Boy!

My 7 year old son is enjoying building different "inventions" of Snap Circuits Jr. When he's not following instructions, he's beginning to attempt making his own. The quality of the product is great. The packaging and storage is fantastic as well. I especially like that there are other kits and accessories that can be added onto the existing product. I only wish that it were made in USA and that the instructions would explain why and how something is working. Rather than just instructions to put it together. Regardless, it seems like a toy that will last a long, long time!

Great for science-oriented 7 1/2 yr

Rating: 5

The father of our 7 1/2 yr. grand-nephew, who likes science and experiments with electricity with his dad, says, "He can't stop talking about it or thinking about it." So I guess he's kind of obsessed with it. It actually helps get him out of bed in the morning, since he wants to make things as soon as he wakes up. At school he was drawing pictures of circuits he wanted to put together.

My 8 year old grandson smiled from ear to ear when after a few minutes with this kit, he produced a working alarm. He was able to work independently with the excellent diagrams. He had such a good time that we had trouble getting him away from it. Soon he was asking for more information about why and how it all worked. We got to introduce him to some science terms that responded to his curiosity. This is the kind of toy that makes gift-giving a satisfying experience for every parent and grandparent.

I purchased the Snap Circuits Jr. for my very active nephew. I wanted something that would motivate him to sit still and use his brain. Snap Circuits Jr. turned out to be perfect. He loves it so much that he takes it everywhere with him, even to bed! He's especially excited that he's getting away with playing with electricity,something "naughty". My sister thanked me for finding the perfect gift. Now shopping's a no-brainer for her. She's already ordered one for another little boy's birthday party.

A Lot Of Fun
Posted 12/18/2006 by Adam Tavares
Rating: 5

I bought this for my nephew's 7th birthday. He wasn't too impressed with the packaging, but once I started playing with it he showed interest. After I put together the UFO circuit, (the product comes with a booklet with dozens of circuits to get you started), and the propeller spun off the board and 8 feet into the air - he and his friends got all excited. I left them alone at that point to work out the circuits together. I was impressed with the design. The pieces are easy to handle. The directions are simple enough to follow for younger kids because of the grid board. My nephew likes the game Battleship so I compared it to that game and that was enough to get him started. When one circuit that accomplishes two things, spins a propeller and lights a bulb, wasn't doing either, one of my nephew's friends managed to deduce it was because the small lightbulb wasn't in its socket properly. While they don't realize it they've seen evidence of serial circuits, so if the concept is ever explained in the abstract to them they'll have this experience to relate to it. It's a great toy. It's educational but it will also get played with without parental intervention. It's simple enough for a 7 or 8 year old to snap together a simple circuit but its real value is generating that sense of awe at how it all works, and the fact that they were involved with making something awe-inducing really gets them excited.

Fantastic toy. My 7 yr old got this and loved it. I told him he could get the next size up when he had completed this. He worked solidly on it (even in my car and while I was at the gym) and in 24 hours had completed it. Of course, now I have to buy the larger model. Outstanding.

Excellent Learning Toy

My two boys love figuring things out, and they love Snap Circuits. They can build most projects without my help (ages 7 and 9). And they have learned quite a bit about basic electronics by experimenting and modifying the circuits. It has been a great learning toy for us.

Circuits A Snap
Posted 10/30/2006 by Howard C Smith
Rating: 5

As a child, I fondly recall having a mess of wires, batteries and small light bulbs and such. Figuring out how this all works became part my lifelong understanding of how things work. I was seeking to recreate that experience for my child, and I found it in this item. My 5 year old daughter (below the minimum recommeded age) has assembled a light and flying saucer. After just a few sessions, she understands the nature of a curcuit, and can troubleshoot when her assembly does not work. There is a lot for both me and my daughter to learn with this. It will keep teaching us for several years. My only wish is that there were a variable switch included (to dial the light or motor speed up or down.)

My 8 year old opened this gift today and spent almost 2 hr. building the circuits. My 13 year old kept leaving his homework to see what was next. Even my 16 year old will learn and enjoy going through the circuits (albeight a good deal faster and with greater understanding of the clearly defined objectives).

This is a great toy for kids interested in exploring connections, circuits and electronics. Our son has played extensively with raw materials such as wires, connectors, lightbulbs and switches, and he's always enjoyed them. The downside has always been that his creations, while functional, are a tangle of wires and components. Snap circuits allows for a much more organized design and faster construction, allowing him to try many new things more easily.

Very well made. Highly educational. I was worried it would be too "scientific" for my 7 year old, but he can play with it with no adult help (although it's hard to get my husband away from it). I would highly recommend this toy for a child who enjoys building and is interested in how things around him/her work.

We gave this as a gift to my son for his 8th birthday. He just loves it. Since it snaps together it is something he can do on his own just by following the simply diagrams. However, he likes me to read the details of why it's working or possibly not working. This is a great tool for any child that likes to build. I'm sure in the future he will want some of the larger Snap Circuit projects.

Our son received an electronics kit for Christmas. Either fortunately, or unfortunately, he wore it out fairly quickly. Therefore, we wanted to get him another kit, but yet wanted one that would last longer and provide more experiments. In researching the various science kits on the internet, we found this one. The quality and type of experiments are great. He loves it and can use it time and time again without the worry of wearing in out like the last one. This is a wonderful kit at a great price and the quality seems to be superior to anything else on the market!

My son chose this gift using birthday money. He absolutely loves it and has been able to build and create many of the activities in the book. The book comes with over 100 ideas and the directions are simple enough for a 7 year old to follow. The snaps fit together easily, making this toy very suitable for the age. The book also gives some explanation as to how things work and why. This is highly recommended for kids who love science and want to learn more about electricity and electrical circuits.

We purchased this item as a gift for our 9 year old son. He was easily able to follow instructions from the book. It didn't take him long to make his own combinations of circuits. The pieces are good quality and we like how the box is made to fit the pieces so they can be put back easily. We are sure he is going to ask for the "Pro" set for Christmas so he can make more things.

I ordered Snap Circuits Jr. and Snap Circuits Pro at the same time, both as gifts for my team at work (We're a Systems Engineering Organization). They were immediately opened and played with and we all really enjoy them. The Jr. by itself would probably not hold adult attention for as long (in terms of weeks of play) as the Pro set, just because there aren't as many things to build. It's well constructed and well designed, and with the booklet we were able to get instant gratification by building cool things that we didn't necessarily understand. I do believe people will spend time thinking and talking about how the more complicated circuits work, which will be good for team-building and also good to broaden their knowledge of technology.

Snap Circuits Jr. is an excellent introduction to circuits with a puzzle-like quality. Once started, kids will want to perform several of the experiments in a session. Works best if used on a hard flat surface, like a table or countertop. Liked it enough to order a second one and donate it to our kids' school!

Our granddaughter is 2+ yrs old and received this as a Christmas gift. This is the gift she goes to most frequently, even though she has many,many new toys to choose from. She experiments with different styles and colours, but seems to keep coming back to the ones that work best together. She is particularly interested in the hats and shoes. I highly recommend this for any little girl. She doesn't seem to want to use the stands, but they may be a variation that catches her attention down the road. Toy is well made, no rough edges, will stand up to years of use.

This was a Christmas present for our 8 year old grandson. He has a very creative engineering type mind and loves legos; designing his own creations all the time. We thought this might be a good complement to legos and we were right. By the end of Christmas Day having already built all of the items in the instructions, he was beginning to design new circuits of his own. The next day he was still enthusiastic. We will definitely be helping him increase the size of his collection of parts to build more circuits with future purchases for presents.

I bought this as a gift for our neighbor that turned 5. My concern was that it would be too hard or the 5 year old wouldn't be excited because a character wasn't on the box. But, my concerns were totally incorrect! He was excited and has played with this numerous times over the week since receiving it. Right now, his parents do sit with him to help and get him started, but it is something he can grow into more and learn as he gets a bit older. My daughter is turning 5 in a few months & this will definately be on my "wish list" of ideas for her birthday or Christmas.

My 7-year-old son loves Legos, but I wanted something with a little more depth. I like Snap Circuits because the pieces connect with genuine snaps, like on your clothes, which allows the electricity to flow. He's a little young to read the descriptions in the manual of what's actually happening, but he loves making the circuits and hearing all the noises and seeing the lights.

I bought as a gift for my grand daughter, a birthday present and it's not until Feb 4th. It's still wraped so I can't answer these questions yet, only that I liked the concept and it could expand her 5 year old mind doing creative things. She likes to dabble with anything that runs on batteries or likes to put puzzels together and she's very good at putting together adult version puzzels, so this should be right for her with a little help from me.

Rating: 5

Quality is awesome..directions very easy to follow...highly impressed...bought for a 6 year old...adults also had a great time playing with it...I bought it because it is something he can play with while in a wheelchair as he is having surgery in March. It is the perfect gift, he loves it and so does his sister. Of all the toys he received for his birthday this is the one he is most interested in...loves to make the "helicopter" fly

Bought for a 6 year old boy. A little above his level, but makes for an outstanding parent-child project. I'm sure he will be building on his own in no time!

My 9 year old discovered that his braces conduct electricity using this kit... Oh the wonders of science! :) It's a really great kit. If your kid can follow Lego directions, this kit is perfect for them.

The Snap Circits are wonderful. They are easy to put together with a parent and help explain electrical concepts in a fun way. Because they are fairly quick to do, my son will often ask if we can build one in the ten minutes downtime before we go somewhere. He can explain how electricity needs to have a "bridge" to flow over and more. It's a great toy.

Our kids are 3, 4, and 7, so we played with this as a family. The two older kids really enjoyed doing the projects with us and enjoyed listening to us as we explained how and why things worked. All the kids were able to take part in reading the "map", finding the correct parts, and placing them in the correct place.

While I haven't yet given this toy to my nephews, I have utilized it in the classroom as a Science teacher for second and third grades. It is a great way to demonstrate electricity and illustrate creating a complete circuit. My students always wanted to play with it when we covered electricity. I can't wait for my nephews to try it out this Christmas!

Very detailed, but easy to understand. My 7 year old grandson had no trouble, with supervision, using it. Perhaps the fact that his father is an electrical engineer helped, but I think that some luddite like myself could use it with my grandson.

This was a gift for my 9 year old son. He loves it! We have a similar product at home already, but is not snap on; you have to connect wires. Connecting wires is difficult and, if it is not done correctly, just frustrates and bores the child. To be honest, I had some difficulty getting the other item to work. This snap together circuitry is wonderful. He was making noises and lighting lights within the first 15 minutes of opening the box. I wish we were able to afford a larger set because I know he would really enjoy that. Thank you for bringing Snap Circuits Jr. to our attention and the "magic" that it allows my son to make. P.S. He was showing his cousin his new "toy" and told her she could try it out, but he asked her to make sure to put it back neatly in the box. He must love this item because he doesn't usually care about how things go back into the box!

I recently purchased this toy for my 4 1/2 year old son. Yes, he is younger than the recommended age but it was referred to us by a friend who has a son with similar interests to mine - one that loves all things mechanical and likes to figure out how things work! He now loves his "electricity set" as he calls it. We of course can only allow him to play with it under our supervision, so he often begs for it all day (that is both good and bad!) He loves trying the different "experiments" and it has even helped him with numbers and letters since I have him retrieve the parts I need (which are labeled with numbers and/or letters.) I hope everyone has as much fun with this as we are!

My 6 year old nephew opened the box and created the first circuit (switched on a light) in just a few minutes. My 17 year old son sat down with him and they worked out 3-4 more. It was so much fun to see the concentration and then pride when it worked. A great success!

This is a great introduction to the principles of electric circuits. It comes with easy to understand directions, including samples of a variety of circuit plans to follow and a list of Don'ts as well. It includes connections for a light bulb, alarm, fan, and door bell, which keeps it interesting. Two AA batteries are needed are not included. Parent supervision is important till they get the hang of it.

Very well built. Captures the "cool factor". Seems to need an Adult with basic knowledge of electricity to explain the "why it works". That's a good thing. great time bonding and keeps them off the video games.

I am a trainer in experiential education who always looks for great educational toys for my friends' children. Snap Circuits is amazing!!!! If you want to offer your child an exciting alternative to video games, this is the toy! What could be better than a toy that offers a hands-on learning experience that is fun, fun, fun!!!! Snap Circuits is a top notch choice. Multiple project suggestions encourage children to develop their imagination and explore new ways to interact with their environment.

Our son wanted toys concerning science that allow him to conduct experiments. So I of course searched around Fat Brain Toys and found 3 different types of toys in this genre and though all were great Snap Circuits Jr. was by far the most enjoyable for our son as he was able to following the steps by himself and produce amazing results. We love it and most importantly so does he!

We gave this as a gift for a 7 year old boy. According to his mom, it has become his favorite "toy". He took it to school when he was the star of the week and all the kids thought it was really cool. We purchased the same set for our 7 year old daughter for the holidays. I'm sure she and her younger brother will really like it.

Cousins of recipient (about same age = <6 yrs) as well as younger brother (<5 yrs) are just as interested and I will certainly get something similar for them too when their birthdays arrive. Furthermore of value is that this game served well because the family undertook a very long trip back to their home country (South Africa) and the toy was small enough to entertain him and his younger brother on board! Good show! Thank you
