My daughter got really into the tinker crate. Also she was having fun while learning so I think that is a win-win.

Review by Cheryl G.
I really enjoyed having a fun activity to do with my son. He was very interested in how everything worked, and it was something outside of the normal routine to work on together. It would've been nice if there were extra batteries included though.

Review by Jennifer G.
My nine year old son loved the project, undertook it all on his own, and was able to successfully and proudly complete the project. He loved being able to make it and show everyone what he made and how it worked. The project was very successful and I had a happy and proud child.

LOVE Tinker Crate!
Review by Jessica S.
We liked everything about this crate! But I especially love that the instructions include testing, so it's easier to find mistakes. My kids loved this one. This project was so much fun, and I love that it's all "real" stuff, instead of "kid" stuff. This is exactly what I wanted for my kids. Well done! Love love love Tinker Crate! I'm so glad we signed up.

Thank you, Tinker Crate!
Review by Cynthia A.
The crate is packaged nicely and has all of the supplies you need. The projects are very well thought out and promote learning and exploration of new ideas. The box includes a book with additional experiments and ideas that build on learning gleaned from the main project. We LOVE these crates and can hardly wait for the next one to arrive.

A New Favorite Crate
Review by Erin T.
This is one of the best crates so far :) We've actually been doing a lot with basic circuitry, so this was a perfect project for my son to get!

great bonding activity
Review by Andrea J.
I enjoy most the one on one time with my son. With this project in particular we liked experimenting with the ability to use more then one light with only one power source.
