What It Is
With the Connex Amazing Alarm System from Amazing Toys Limited, kids can learn the basics behind how the electronic circuits of an alarm system operate. The clock comes with easy-to-follow instructions on how and where to attach the different wires and place and attach its different components. And once complete you'll have assembled your own alarm-sounding siren with blinking LED lights. Disconnect different wires to turn off the LED lights or the motor's spinning feature of the alarm's siren. Further instructions are provided about the basic connections in the instructions guide.
Why It’s Fun
While most alarms feature sensors to activate an alarm, this one is manual, which in terms of the educational value, we think offers kids a bit more insight on how the system operates. And we think the DIY science behind the kit gives kids a sense of accomplishment once complete.
Who It’s For
The Connex Amazing Alarm System is for ages 8 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
Because you are dealing with circuit connections, double check that all the wires are connected correctly before you insert the batteries and activate the unit. Otherwise you can short circuit the device and damage its components.
Two AA batteries are required but not included.
