  • My 10-year-old son is interested in electronics so I purchased this hoping that it would help him understand how a breadboard works. We worked on several simple projects using it and it was very helpful at first but the poor quality quickly became evident. I agree with most of the comments made in the other negative reviews – especially annoying were the numerous loose connections when using standard 22 gauge jumper wires!<br />

    In spite of the poor quality I still think it was worthwhile purchasing it for my son, but more as a teaching aid than as a functioning breadboard. It really did help him to understand how the connections are made, and once he understood that, he quickly began using it correctly. We still keep it around so he can explain things to his friends when they are experimenting but we no longer use it for breadboarding.

No public wish lists :(
