Editorial Review
Electronic Snap Circuits by Elenco is an award-winning toy for budding engineers eight years old and above. The SC-300 model includes over 60 parts for creating more than 300 exciting projects. With lights, sounds, motors, and more, you'll not only enjoy creating beeping games, but also learn about basic electronics as well!



Making a simple flying UFO took only a few minutes.

Create your own complex inventions using parts such as the fan motor, alarm speaker, and over 60 other pieces. What We Think

Real Electronic Parts
Electronic Snap Circuits includes real circuit components just like the circuit boards inside radios, televisions, computers, and other electronic devices. This set makes it easy for anyone to create simple electronic circuits and devices. To operate, you simply snap the electronic elements onto a plastic grid, and then connect them together with wire pieces that snap easily into place.

The SC-300 lets you build electronic devices such as a whistle chip, speaker, alarm circuit, LED, lamp socket, fan motor, and a speaker. Additional pieces can be purchased separately, or in different models, and they can all be used together to create larger and more elaborate projects.

Making Electronics Fun and Easy
The included instruction manual offers 305 projects ranging from a simple light switch to a noise-activated burglar alarm. We found the color-coded instruction manual clear and easy to understand, and we had no problems creating any of the projects we tried. The projects are organized by levels of difficulty, and each project teaches an objective such as "To show how electricity can only pass in one direction through an LED."

We definitely experienced a sense of satisfaction as we completed each project, and we definitely learned about electronics concepts. The manufacturer recommends the set for ages 8-108; younger engineers should be able to easily follow the diagrams for each project, but will probably require their parents to help explain how everything works. So a word of warning to parents: Brush up on your high school physics! Although the instruction offers some good information, we found that we still needed to brush up on the physics we learned years ago so we could understand concepts such as the difference between a circuit in parallel and in series.

Unique Learning Experience
Creating a flying UFO from "scratch" with rudimentary electronic pieces was highly satisfying to us, and we think Electronic Snap Circuits may well help young students gain and foster an appreciation for, and interest in, how electronics work and are built.

For students who are already learning about electronics in school, this set creates a hands-on experience that makes for more fun than reading about how these things work in a textbook. So don't be surprised if report cards come back with higher grades after playing with this toy.

Parent-Child Bonding Experience
The Elenco Electronic Snap Circuits would make a great parent-child bonding experience that is both educational and fun. As you work through each project with your child, don't be surprised when you, too, are learning something new and interesting. And after you've completed all the projects, you can create your own! The combinations are limitless!

Here is what people are saying about the Electronic Snap Circuits 300 Kit
4 Star Rating  "Big improvement over classic spring-terminal electronics kits" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User from Los Angeles, CA United States
I bought this based on reviews, and am very happy with it. It builds the same kinds of projects that the classic spring-terminal boards did (lights, buzzers, AM radios), but the snap-on grid is much easier to use. And it wisely makes it fun, fast: the second project is a very simple motor that sends a disk spinning in the air. My daughter loved it.

My only criticism is that the project book doesn't really try to explain what's going on. As a parent, if you have no background in electronics at all, you might not be able to explain what a circuit is, or why everything needs to be connected back to the battery. That won't hinder your kid's enjoyment, but it does put a damper on the educational aspect.

In terms of difficulty, if your kids can assemble one of the more-complicated Lego sets, she can follow these instructions.
 
5 Star Rating  "Absolutely Fantastic" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User
This product is wonderful!! We bought this set for our five year old son who loves to build. It is easy to use and is safe for him to work with independently. The instruction manual is straightforward with easy to follow diagrams. We could not be happier. He hasn't stopped playing with it since we received it.
 
5 Star Rating  "Best toy purchase all year!" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User from Charlottesville, Virginia United States
I bought this for my son's 7th birthday and the whole family has had a blast building tons of creations.We started with the simple ones and have moved on to some of the harder ones. He was so excited when he built a radio by himself that really worked. The pieces fit easily back into their tray so no pieces get lost and they are all in sight when building. Diagrams and directions are very easy to follow. The only thing I would have added is a little more scientific reasoning behind why it all works the way it does. I would highly recommend this as an educational yet fun toy for kids. It does say ages 8 and up but certainly younger kids (5-7) could do it with support. The pieces go together very easily.
 
5 Star Rating  "8 year old boy plays for hours" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User from NJ
bought it for my 8 year old cousin... he loves it and plays for hours... his father got into it as well. it's a nice gift
 
5 Star Rating  "Great toy" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User from Saskatoon, Saskatcewan
I gave this toy to my son for his 10th birthday and he says "it's genius" and "I'd like to warmly shake the hand of whoever invented this." This is a fantastic toy and my son has learned a lot from it about basic electrical circuits. He has spent hours with it. The projects are easy to assemble because of the excellent instructions. Someone needs to sell this in our city of Saskatoon!
 
5 Star Rating  "Great projects" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User
My almost 7 year old daughter loves to make these projects. Right now she definitely needs supervision, mostly for the explanations. There are 2 books of projects and once you understand the basics you can play around with designs yourself. I think that might be a year or so ahead for her. I know I have enjoyed playing with it.
