I love it! It's useless and whimsical. It tickles my funny bone. I had a little trouble with stripping the ends of the smaller wires, but I am a total novice. I'm sure with practice and the proper tool, it would have been simple.

Great little kit! All the parts were included and following the instructions was easy. Great kit for some easy electronics. Perhaps an explanation of how the circuit works would be a cool addition!
