    Wow! It’s much better than I expected., March 2, 2007

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    I’ve been an Amazon customer for years, but this is the first time a product stood out enough for me to write a review. I bought this for my 8 yr. old daughter and I figured my 6 yr. old son could use it later.

    I was very hesitant, because there aren’t a lot of reviews and it’s expensive.

    Well, we’ve had it a few days and my daughter has been playing more with “Secrets of the Master Magician: An Apprentice’s Manual”, which I also bought at the same time (another great gift). My daughter is interested in this and it’s easy for her to put things together.

    My son is obsessed with it! It’s similar (for him) to the Lego creatures he puts together. He needs a little help from time to time, but he can certainly follow the very well laid out diagrams. So far they’ve created an FM radio, a scifi noise maker, a sound detecting space noise maker thingy, a propeller that spins and flies into the air, a seven segment display, a volt meter connected to the solar cell. After connecting the solar cell, I realized my son thought the solar cell would come on like a computer screen or TV! After explaining it and putting my hand over it; now they both know what a solar cell does.

    – There are 5 books of experiments.

    – Each project has a nice simple color picture of how to connect all the components.

    – All components are clearly marked.

    – The diagrams are a top view. Since the connections are layered on top of one another 2 and 3 deep, it takes a little figuring as to what’s on top and what’s on bottom. It’s easy for an adult. It’s part of the “puzzle” for the kids. After we put a few together, they both got it.

    – The pieces seem sturdy enough and snap together easily

    – There is great assortment of parts to create lots and lots of very interesting projects.

    – My kids love the projects. I’ve been very impressed.

    – It has a cable that you can connect to the microphone port of a PC sound card. I haven’t played with this. There is software, it looks like you can turn your PC into an oscilloscope. Looks interesting. There’s a whole book for these projects. I just saw the cover, so it’s likely that there’s even more to it.

    My kids are learning a lot with this. While they are putting things together, I can explain how these different parts work. There are lots of opportunities to take the project and modify it by replacing parts, change a light out for the speaker, etc.

    For example, my son put the 7 segment LED together. I wasn’t impressed. I was hoping to put together a counter, but it just connects each segment to ground to turn all the segments on. There are 750 projects, so maybe there is a counter project. Regardless, my son was fascinated. He changed all the connections manually to count from 0 to 9. He changed the main power resistor to see it go brighter with a smaller resistor and dimmer with a bigger resistor. Lots of implicit learning going on. I pointed to the microwave display and said, “See, that’s how it works!”

    Fantastic gift for curious kids, August 7, 2007

    Despite the price tag, I bought this as a birthday gift for our highly intelligent, 10-year-old budding engineer, who was always complaining, “I’m bored.” (Plus, he dismantles everything else he gets, therefore breaking it, so we thought, “Why not get him something he’s supposed to tinker with?”)

    Within minutes of opening the box, he was snapping circuits together and creating cool experiments. Every 10 minutes or so, he returned with a new “invention” and within an hour announced, “This is the BEST GIFT EVER!!!” He still loves it and enjoys trying different configurations. For his brother’s birthday celebration this weekend, he had it perform “Happy Birthday” to everyone’s amusement. There seems to be no limit to its applications, and my son is excited about learning what it can do.

    I cannot recommend this kit enough. You will not regret shelling out a little more cash for the 750 kit if you have a computer and want to encourage your child to use the computer for something other than playing games and surfing silly kid sites. We’re sure Joey will eventually lose various pieces, but there are so many possible configurations, that won’t render the product useless when it happens. Don’t hesitate — you won’t be disappointed!

    What a GREAT learning toy., January 9, 2007

    Hammer Head (North Wales, PA USA) –

    I’ve been looking at the Snap Circuit sets for several years now and finally purchased the SC-750 for my daughters 9th birthday. I was a bit worried she was too young for it but found that was not the case. She’s already built the voice recorder, FM radio and doorbell projects and had a blast playing with each of them. The projects are really simple to build (I only helped with the first one) by following the detailed instructions and well marked components. She came home yesterday, did her homework and went right to Snap Circuits and began building another project (much better than watching the TV). I look forward to using the computer interface so we can actually learn (together) about electronics. I suspect this is one of those rare toys that that will not gather dust on the shelf.
