Snap Circuits

“Snap Circuits® LIGHT, along with the others on the Best Toys for Kids Award list, go way beyond the pre-programmed, ho-hum play of so many heavily advertised toys and gives kids play that truly challenges their imagination, creativity, and other skills,” continued McHugh.

Art Seymour of Elenco® says that what makes Snap Circuits® LIGHT unique is the play value which keeps children’s interest by integrating with their personal music player, like iPods, or any other MP3 player. The project will react differently for all children depending on there music choice. “This may not be the toy the TV commercials tell your kids to bug you about, but it will be one they play with over and over again. Rather than scripting everything for your kids, Snap Circuits® LIGHT lets them make up the play themselves,” notes Art Seymour.

Here are some testimonials about Snap Circuits:


To Whom It May Concern: We bought our grandson for Christmas the Electronic Snap Circuits Kit with over 500 experiments in the box. It is so much fun and a wonderful learning tool for our grandson. He is a special child with special needs, including mental retardation. He needs help, though 10 y/o, yet he was able to concentrate on this for much longer than he usually would on something. We built six projects at one setting yesterday. Quite a feat for this guy…



Good day. I wanted to let you know that I purchased your snap together circuit set for Christmas for my 11-year old nephew. I just got it yesterday. It is so very cool, if it wasn’t pre wrapped in cellophane, I know I would be trying it out first…I know that it will definitely get him well on his way to becoming an electrical engineer he dreams to some day be. A special thanks to all the people involved in making these great “toys” available today. We have come a long way from the old erector set… Happy Holidays.

Thank you for making such a wonderful educational toy/learning tool.

My grandson received it for Christmas and I must say it is the FIRST and I repeat First time I have ever seen anything hold his interest (other than Chess) for more than 20 minutes. He absolutely loves it, he will be 8 in March and is already wondering if there are replacement parts (just in case) or if you have a catalog he could look at other than on the Internet. The price was also very reasonable because he has one hundred dollar toys that he never touches. And for a product to hold his attention like this kit does for only 59 dollars is a BARGAIN!!!

Thank You Once Again,



My son received an SC-300 Snap Circuit kit for Christmas…

My son (age 9) LOVES this kit. This had to have been his favorite gift by far. He has been having a great time building and then modifying projects over and over. I am heartily recommending your product to everyone I know!

I purchased this gift for my son as a Christmas gift but found my daughter spent hours playing with this set. What joy! As a matter of fact, she is the one that kept making projects…

This is a wonderful thing for kids to learn about circuits and how the world around them works. Can’t say enough about how happy I am with the product.


I would also be interested in knowing how I could purchase smaller sets to use in a classroom setting. My children attend a charter school that would be very interested in incorporating circuitry into their science curriculum.
