    Last year for Christmas, we bought the Snap Circuits Jr. SC-100 set for our then six-year-old son. The worked through the first half of the experiments on Christmas day! Obviously I didn’t have time to explain to him how they all worked, but the point is the instructions are easy to follow and produce entertaining results.
    This year, we knew another snap circuits set would be similarly well received. This Green – Alternative Energy Kit looked like a great option that didn’t repeat too much of what he already had. He loved it again and is eagerly looking forward to designing his own circuits that can combine parts from both sets.

    The product is very well packaged–the box it comes in organizes all parts neatly and securely without too much wasted space. The parts are all clearly labeled and easy to snap into place. It includes an FM radio, voltmeter, and a fan/windmill, which are all favorites. The biggest complaint I have is that the hand crank requires enough force to turn it quickly that it is easy to pop that part off of the circuit board. Keeping one hand firmly over the part while using the other hand to do the cranking usually keeps everything secure. Also, the photovoltaic cell doesn’t generate enough current except during a very sunny day (which is typical for a cell this size). That said, I would say this set is even more enjoyable than the first set and I would certainly buy it again.

    When I asked my son just now what he thought of the set and whether he’d recommend it to others, he said: “It is awesome!”

    I got this yesterday. For 8 and up. It is the greatest toy I ever had! It’s like LEGO, a new toy every day. The only thing is that you have to charge the batteries for several hours before you can start building. It is very easy to put together. The battery charger uses solar so we put in in the sun. I LOVE IT! Get it for your kid. Buy today, don’t delay!

    The Snap Circuits toys are wonderful. My son (just turned 6 last week) received the Snap Circuits Pro for Christmas. We liked it so much that he received the Snap Circuits Green kit for his birthday last week. He has enjoyed building snap circuits into actual items. The instructions are easy to follow. I like that the toy is educational, fun, and durable. I would highly recommend it!
