Snap Circuits Bric: Structures
Solving the age-old problem of combining plastic building bricks with electronics, this kit provides 75 adapters to attach Snap Circuit components to any brick structure! Combine the best of architecture and electronics to integrate gear-driven drawbridges, lights, sounds, and more into your favorite plastic brick structures. Includes 20 Snap Circuits, 25 each of three different brick adapters (1x1, 1x2, & 2x2), 140 building bricks, and an illustrated project manual.
Kids can use their imagination to combine SNAP CIRCUITS®with ordinary building bricks and make endless combinations of construction and circuitry. With patent-pending, Bric-2-Snap technology, kids can wire up their brick builds with SNAP CIRCUITS®lights, sounds, moving parts and 3-D circuits to invent almost anything and make it go!
Kids love to create and invent from what they have at home. Instead of just building a structure, now kids can learn how to build the circuit that makes the lights on a skyscraper illuminate or that makes the gears on a drawbridge move! Elenco's team of engineers has come up with a great way for kids to Learn By Doing®and be creative with their everyday, building bricks. There's no limit to what kids can create with SNAP CIRCUITS®BRIC: STRUCTURES!
20 SNAP CIRCUITS®component parts
75 Bric-2-Snap adapters
Over 140 fully compatible building bricks
Full-color, easy-to-read project manual
Award-winning SNAP CIRCUITS®products teach kids to have fun learning electricity, engineering, circuitry and more. SNAP CIRCUITS®features building components with snaps to assemble electronic circuits that function like the printed circuit board found in most electronic products.
For ages 8 and up.

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!
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
