My son is 7yo (in Y2), he was learning about electrics at school so we got him this as a present. He hasn't had time to make the car or boat yet but has really enjoyed making basic circuits to light the lightbulb or start a fan. The pieces click together really easily for different combinations of circuits. Some of the instructions are aimed at a higher age group but I think the kit is suitable for all ages because each child will understand it at their own level.
This is going to be a Christmas present so ive not had a go with it yet however having had a look i have to say it looks great, well constructed with nice clear instructions and a decent size for children not too fiddly ot small. The service was excelent and the delivery timely. I found this product after my child saw a snap electronics kit advertised on the tv it was over twice as expensive as this kit and didnt have a clear goal so i was pleased to find spotty green frogs kits having a working car or boat at the end will really help to keep focus for my 8 year old. Im looking forward to having a go with this after christmas and would like to thanl you for your great service and sensible pricing.
Bought this as a birthday present for my nephew and if my children also say they want one I know it's going to be a success!
