Fantastic all-round service.






Bought as Christmas present for my 9 and 11 yr old. They absolutely love it and have been experimenting with all sorts of circuits, having great fun along the way. Enough in the pack to keep them busy for a long, long time.




Very absorbing. Grandad loved it as well!


Great product, price and fast delivery.


It was good to teach science, but I regret that it could not compete with the iPad or notebook, both of which soon took over his interest.


This was a present for my nephews and they absolutely love it!


Our 9 yr old grandson was straight into it (up to exercise 200) but he sees it more s sort of Lego where you copy the illustrations. He hasn't yet understood the principles behind it. Nevertheless he is very much enjoying using the kit and that's the main thing


I bought it as a gift for my 11 yr old son and he is veryinterested in electrics. He loved it. I myself find it very interesting. The experiments are very nicely presented and kids learning so much as they are having fun. Even my 8 year old daughter love doing experiments on it. Really happy with the purchase. It was very nicely packaged and delivered earlier than expected. 5 stars from me!


This is a fantastic set for any child- it kept our 11 year old busy for not only Christmas Day but Boxing Day as well!


Kit arrived promptly. Our grandson was delighted with the set and was able to follow the instructions and build things unaided. Brilliant Christmas present for a ten year old.


Great product. My kids loved it. Would be great if you could add a 3V/6Vpower supply. Would be a more eco-friendly kit then.


This is a really excellent product, hardly a toy and full of opportunities to learn. However the comprehensive instruction book has a serious mistake re experiment 20 in that the diagram shows dangerously wrong connections although the text is correct. The company has acknowledged the mistake and says it will correct the book but you should check that a correction is made in any sold through you. I am a highly qualified engineer FIET.


Don't know. Purchased for grandson.


My daughter loves it, and has spent hours experimenting.


Our grandson was so pleased to be able to show us how it helped with his school curriculum


Really exciting for grandson, compatible with earlier purchase, superb
