My son received this as a birthday gift from his grandparents. The reason they brought it was because my son is into science and he likes to do experiments. They thought this kit would be a lot of fun for him.
According to the front of the kit, this is suppose to be "science fun" with step by step illustrations.
I have to say this kit is really a disappointment.
My son wanted to make a telegraph. The kit has some supplies but we had to supply the batteries. That was not a big deal so we get everything we need. My son follows the instructions and the thing does not work. I look over his work to make sure it is all correct, which it was. I tell him to wait until his dad gets home and maybe he can help, since my husband likes to do that kind of stuff. Well, he could not get it to work either.
They decided to make a "radio" as in the instruction book. Yep, you guessed it they could not get that to work either!
It was very frustrating because my son was looking forward to making some of this stuff and getting it to work.
None of the inventions my husband and son tried would work. The instruction book really did not help and you only got pictures not words on how to put things together. I do not know if that was part of the problem, but this was not what we thought it was be.
I felt this was one big rip off. I am sorry my parents wasted their money on this. I am not sure how much it cost, but whatever it cost was too much.
Please do not get this kit, no matter what! It just leads to a lot of frustrations!
