Create Working Electronic Circuits

Build 101 different electronic projects. View larger. Snap Circuits Jr. SC-100 Electric Bombing Game View larger. Create Working Electronic Circuits Snap Circuits comes with over 30 pieces to create 101 different electronic projects. The pieces, which include snap wires, slide switches, an alarm circuit, a music integrated circuit, and a speaker, snap together easily on the included plastic grid--no soldering required. Each piece is numbered and color-coded to make identifying them easy. These components combine to create working circuit boards just like the ones found inside televisions, radios, and other electronic devices.

Simple, Fun Projects Let Kids Learn While They Play

With its easy-to-follow instructions, Snap Circuits gives your child a hands-on education in how electrical circuits work to run the everyday devices that they're familiar with. They'll also gain valuable lessons in building and in following instructions. The project manual includes large color illustrations and simple directions for each project. The projects include a sound-activated switch, a musical doorbell, a voice-controlled lamp, a flying saucer, and a light police siren. With these projects, children will experiment with things like electric switches, integrated circuits, digital circuits, fuses, and the transformation of circuit sounds into other sounds.

Grow as You Go

Because the projects are arranged in order of complexity, kids can build on their skills as they progress through the manual. The lessons start out with a simple electric light and switch project that demonstrates how electricity is turned on and off with a switch. Further along, kids can put together a two-speed fan, create clap-controlled sounds, and more.

Design Your Own Circuits and Upgrade Your Kit

Once children have mastered several of the techniques introduced in this kit, they can use the components to experiment and create their own customized circuits and electronic devices. The Snap Circuits Jr. SC-100 can also be upgraded to the Snap Circuits SC-300, Snap Circuits Pro, or Snap Circuits Extreme with the purchase of a UC-30, UC-40, UC-60 upgrade kits, respectively. Kids will enjoy additional parts, manuals, and projects that'll take their kit--and their fun--to the next level.

This is such an awesome toy!, August 20, 2014 By Rebecca M. This review is from: Snap Circuits Jr. SC-100 Kit (Toy) This is such an awesome toy!! I love it because my kids are learning while they play. The set comes with a book full of circuit builds that have very user-friendly instructions. There is a little “helicopter” spinning top that flies off the board (very lightweight and thin so no issues with safety at all), a music speaker box, lights, etc. Depending on the way you build up the circuits, it can do different things. My 6 year old son and 8 year old daughter LOVE it and can play with it independently. My 4 & 5 year old nieces & nephews also love it but they need a bit of help with assembly. I cannot recommend it highly enough! Great for birthday presents (not too pricey!!) and also has been a fun thing to have in the car for road trips. Whole family loves the snap circuit! Preferred over video games!

Love It!, August 12, 2014 By Leah Doherty – See all my reviews This review is from: Snap Circuits Jr. SC-100 Kit (Toy) I purchased this for my 10 year old and was blown away by the interest that he along with friends have showed in it! They’ll even choose this over their favorite video games! I look forays to purchasing more kits from snap circuits!

This parent has a valid point about toy vs kit Not a Toy, January 15, 2007 By The Laundry Goddess Verified Purchase This review is from: Elenco Electronic Snap Circuits, Jr. Kit (Toy) A great EDUCATIONAL kit, but not really a toy. It took a little one on one time with my son (8yrs) to get him going on this himself. He’s proud of all the projects that he is able to complete. But it would have been helpful to know before hand that this set makes several different types of loud, IRRITATING noise. This kit does not seem to have the lasting entertainment value that other bulding toys have–my son likes to check off each project he has completed, and as he has completed most now…
