Timberdoodle's review
Winner of the 2012 Best Toys for Kids Award from ASTRA
New from the Snap Circuits educational line comes Snap Circuits Light, winner of the 2012 Best Toys for Kids award from ASTRA because Snap Circuits Light goes "way beyond the pre-programmed, ho-hum play of so many heavily advertised toys and gives kids play that truly challenges their imagination, creativity, and other skills."

Integrate Your MP3 Player with Snap Circuits
What sets Snap Circuits Light apart from the rest of the Snap Circuits line is the unique way it integrates MP3 players (not supplied) with the experiments. Build the circuit, connect your own iPodŽ or MP3 player, and experience light in a whole new way. Adjust circuit design by simply snapping the pieces in other arrangements, then change your music and enjoy real-time experimentation with technology.

Tons of Experiments
But that is just the start. You can launch a glow-in-the-dark fan, build a resistor that controls lights based on air pressure, or put together a super-infrared detector. Since Snap Circuits Light uses many of the same snap-in color-coded parts as the original Snap Circuits sets, it is just as easy to assemble as they are.

In addition, Snap Circuits Light is packed with information about light--what it is and how it is made. Snap Circuits Light also includes a number of exclusive parts, such as LED attachments that are used to enhance the LED modules, a phototransistor that uses light to control the current, a miniaturized infrared receiver for remote control, a strobe that may drive an adult nuts but will provide your child with endless delight, a fiber-optic cable, a stereo cable used to connect your music device, and a very amazing part called a color organ which contains a tri-color LED that changes color by direct control or by audio input.

A Note for Snap Circuits Owners
If you already own a Snap Circuits set, you will find it helpful to know that while most of the projects are new, especially those pertaining strictly to light, fiber optics, and the color organ, there is some overlap. While duplicate projects have been given a fresh twist from their older counterparts, not all 182 projects will introduce your child to new information.

  • High-power fiber optics
  • Double strobe light
  • Photo infrared detector
  • Funky light & sound
