Good educational toy ,excellent condition on arrival


Once again Grandson delighted. I am sure it will be really helpful & fun learning for him.


The set has certainly aroused an interest in "Science" in my 6 year old grandson. It is well constructed and the experiments are easy to follow with a bit of help from Grandpa. The first power pack did not work due to a blown fuse which was difficult to diagnosewithout careful reading of the manual. Spec for fuses not easy to determine and replacements not readily available in local shops. Otherwise well pleased with the product.


Great fun and entertainment for 7 year old-and his dad! A part was faulty but I was able to phone Brightminds on a Sunday afternoon and the part arrived 3 days later.
Excellent customer service!




We bought this for our 6 year old grandson. He loves it and I think it has potential for years to come. It says eight year and over on the box and obviously he cannot read the instructions yet. The instructions look great but actually they area bit advanced and the early projects are not very exciting. A section in the instructions that just shows how to make some fun things for the younger ones would be great - rather than trying to teach them electrical theory from the start.




Lots of uses and easy to follow instructions.


May be the best thing I've ever bought for my 7 year old daughter!




My Grandson( and his father) very pleased with it


Got this set for my 6yr old for Christmas. He loves to build and craft and I thought this would be a change to Lego etc. He loves it! He has played with it with daddy and independantly and the spinner and happy birthday circuits are favourites so far. Daddy was a disappointed that some important functions are hidden in boxes. He would have liked to be able to see those too to help explain how things work, when our son is a little older.
Great product. :-)
