Category Description for SCIENCE FUN (GIFT):

Make personalized gifts for all of your relatives! Each kit includes paper templates and markers so kids can draw and color pictures to show off their artwork, commemorate special events, or even try their hand at portraits of relatives (always a hit!). When the templates are colored, simply send them to the manufacturer, where they will transform them into a plate or snack tray. The items are dishwasher-safe, and the quality of the finished product will last for years to come as evidenced by several of our plates, from as far back as '88. The Individual kit includes 5 paper templates, markers, and the processing cost for one item. The Teacher Kit is of better value if you are making multiple gifts and includes 50 paper templates and markers (no items are prepaid in this kit). Processing costs per item range from $4.95-7.95 with a reasonable shipping cost. Just send in your completed artwork and your personalized items will be sent back to you in 10-12 business days (longer during the holidays). These are sure to become treasured family keepsakes!

Category Description for Electronic Snap Circuits:

These easy-to-use circuit kits are composed of over 30 easy to snap "blocks" of all necessary electronic components, similar to those used in Switch On!. An impressive number of projects can be made using these parts, including an electric light, a sound activated switch, lamp and fan, two-speed fan, laser "gun." police siren, clap sounds, blinking double flashlight, motor sounds, strobe lights, motor-controlled lamp, lamp/speaker/fan in parallel, pencil alarm, touch motor, bomb sound, simple water alarm, and many, many more projects and games. Each project is listed in the booklet, and featured in a half-page layout which includes a full-color diagram of the finished setup, objective, and directions. The parts are all labeled on the diagram, making it easy to set up the project, and the directions include an explanation of how the circuit works, so maybe after the thrill of creating their own laser "gun" or water alarm wears off, they'll come back and actually figure out how it works. A fairly detailed orientation to the parts in the kit and their functions, safety guidelines, parts checklist and a troubleshooting guide are all included at the beginning, so students can complete the projects safely - and get a lot more from the kit than just "making cool stuff." Looking back from beyond college, I definitely recommend any child looking to the science route in college to play around a bit with one of these kits - it honestly does make understanding circuits and charges at the college level a little easier. This is definitely too fun to be "science!" A Dr. Toy 100 Best Children's Products Winner. - Jess
