Snap Circuits Jr

Snap Circuits Jr is definitely one of those toys that you want to tell your friends that your kids are playing with. (Which is exactly what I am doing here. Yikes!) Its just so educational and non-screeny and interesting.
A practical introduction to basic electronic circuits, it is actually pretty cool. Robust, easy to use, the separate pieces all click onto a board and if you follow the diagrams in the instruction booklet, you can make lights flash and alarms go off and more. If you have a child who enjoys following lego instructions, they will like this. If you have a child who likes fiddling with things (like your phone or computer), they will like this. But probably not break it!. 

Like it says on the box, from ages 8 to 108 is good for this one. Although I'd modify that by saying it will work fine from when a child can read confidently. Six and up probably.

P.s. The price of this on fluctuates a lot. I paid £20 sterling, but its now £27. So I'd put it in my basket and keep checking, the price will probably go down.
