    Purchased for Kindergarten Science fun February 18, 2015
    Reviewer: Melinda V.  
    This kit arrived in the mail at the perfect time, as our fourth grader was studying electricity. He was able to get more hands-on learning about circuits as his little sister also learned. Biggest brother (in 8th grade) enjoyed both the fun and being allowed the responsibility of helping his younger siblings learn and have fun while doing so. The buzzers weren't my favorite part, but the kids enjoyed making noise. The LARGE LEDs are great for smaller fingers and each child came up with creative ways, and creatures, to use them. Having to make the dough is a little inconvenient, but allows so much creativity.

    Saving for when he is older. Really Cool. February 19, 2014
    Reviewer: Torrie L.  
    Allow yourself planning and prep time. I really thought this would be a great Daddy/Toddler project. For some unknown reason our toddler is afraid of it. He does like the clay. Daddy and Mommy think it is pretty cool! Do plan extra time to make the clay and add the items to your shopping list that you may not have on hand (flour, cream of tartar or lemon juice) also if you have an allergy kiddo like we do you may need to modify to avoid exposure to wheat. The dough didn't quiet hold together as well but did work.

    So Clever! October 31, 2013
    Reviewer: Rachel S.  
    This is such a clever way of introducing this concept! We got this as a for fun extra thing, but now my five year old is going to use it for our homelearners' science fair this year! This is a safe, completely engaging, interactive product, we love it! I honestly found myself learning so much too! I think it's something we'll revisit for a few years, as I think the age range on it is really wide.
