from San Antonio, TX United States
Ben, who is 5, and I started Monday morning on this kit. I asked him if he knew how Simon worked, and he surprised me. His mom had let him play it on her fancy cell phone. We opened the package and looked at all the little parts. The instruction booklet is very well written and goes step by step with clear explanations. Ben helped put components in the holes of the circuit board, the I soldered them, and he clipped the wires. He likes working with the magnifier to see what's going on. He looked through the magnifier with me while I soldered some of the parts. I showed him how to insert the batteries correctly (look for the plus sign). The kit went together without a hitch and worked the first time! Grandma, look what we made! Thanks for a nice, well-designed kit - an easy one that a youngster can help build.
