          Comments about RadioShack Electronics 101 Snap-Kit:

          My 3 year old son loves this and he gets very excited and runs to his mother and shows her when he makes something. It is fairly easy to teach him how to make things. I got it for him because I thought he was ready for something more challenging, I was really surprised at how much he wants to play with it.

            Comments about RadioShack Electronics 101 Snap-Kit:

            I got this and my 3 homeschooled children ages 16, 13 and 10 really like it. My 10 year old can build it by herself. Then I have been sitting down and trying to give a "cliff notes" explanation of why it works. My 16 and 13 year olds really liked it too. Good for all ages! Good project for a gift for a bed ridden person. Would provide lots of things for someone to talk about with them when they came to visit.

                    I am 15 and just received this gift recently from my father. I must say this makes electronic understanding very easy. All it takes is about 5 minutes of reading the manual and your set to start connecting. I would highly recommend this to anyone of any age either for understanding of electronics or just to have a fun time.

                    Good Toy for my son, but it has no instructions. I see the PDF Icon, but it is not clickable. I think I have the current adobe acrobat.

                      Our 5-yr old son loves this kit. We showed him how to do one project, one time, and from there he has built almost all 100 projects by himself. It is amazing...he plays with it everyday. We are ready to get him the 750 project set and remote car.
