The components feel tough and durable, and are not flimsy so will stand up to being snapped together and unsnapped for a long time.

He didn't understand the workings behind it so trying to explain electronics and circuits to a 6 yr old was fun! The sees circuits go from a switch to circuits activated by touch, noise, water and light giving results in sirens, flashing lights, flying discs and even sound effects. All the components are fitted into their individual slots so that you can see at a glance what pieces you have. When choosing toys for children it's also important not only what we want them to learn, but also how we want them to learn it.If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our site, and will not be able to monitor its performance and make improvements. I was also pleased to see that – as well as this simplified way of identifying the components – they also have the proper electrical symbol on them too. By building a simple circuit and using the information in the book it shows how electricity flows and how opening or closing a circuit will give a result, in this case turning on or off the light.

But which ones will keep your young scientists excited and engaged beyond Christmas or their birthday?

She’s managed to expand some sets with further pieces to change the pitch of the sound that she made. At the moment, the biggest educational toy seems to be coding toys and I must admit we do have some.The snap together components make is so much easier for little hands to build fully working circuits independently. There are so many more complex things to try as you build confidence and infinite possibilities to test out your own ideas. It is just a blue T-shirt with a funny pixelated skeleton pattern on the front, you might think it does not exactly look exciting. For example, if your child loves playing with cars then why not set up some cones in the driveway and have them race each other?

The set was designed by the Royal Society for Chemistry so the numbers are real (no ‘Cool Ratings’ here) and players learn about the elements while enjoying the game. There are so many things to make with this set, one being the disc that flys into the air, and the radio. The John Adams Hot Wires kit cleverly boosts interest in experiments 2 and 3, after teaching the most basic (lighting a lamp) circuit in experiment 1.

All one needs to do is follow the full-colour step-by-step instructions to become an electronics wizard - the kit comes with all you need to build things such as a flying dist, a working radio with an automatic station, a lie detector, a burglar alarm, among many other projects. Simply follow the full colour step by step instructions to become your very own resident electronics wizard.

I am really impressed with as how you progress through the book the experiments get more challenging, adding in new components and more complicated designs. This really is good to get children thinking, learning and experimenting with electrics in a safe and educational way.
