@NYC Toy Fair 2009 – a favorite each year, Snap Circuits from Elenco. We like these kits so much for teaching kids we have them in the Maker Shed too! The one pictured above isn’t out yet, it’s “green” alternative energy – the circuits are powered by: solar power, wind power, crank power, chemical/battery power and america power.
And… There’s also Snap-Micro. A snap circuit version of doing projects with a micro-controller, I couldn’t figure out the chip was, but once it’s shipping I’ll look it up.
