    My career in electronics started at the age of 5 with a Radio Shack 150-in-one electronics kit--very much like this one. GREAT way to start kids down the right path!

    Wow that Electronic Playground brings back memories. I had Heathkit model back around 1968 or so, spring loaded contacts. I learned a lot from that kit, glad you've revived it with a new kit.
