Description: Make music out of almost anything, just like tech genius, Bryden Bandweth! Complete an electrical circuit to turn bananas into a piano. Or use a flower, glass of water, ice cream – whatever you can dream up that conducts electricity -- and 4 other sound options to bang out more beats. #amazeblogs! Visit www.ProjectMc2.com for more ideas. Picking Up S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math): Circuit Beats works by using you and the objects you choose to complete an electrical circuit. A very small amount of electricity needs to flow in a circular path from the circuit board and its battery and back. By holding the ground wire in one hand, you are giving a return path for the electricity. By connecting the board to something that conducts electricity (like a banana) and tapping it with your finger from your other hand, you are completing the circuit and allowing electrons to flow through you! Product includes: • Circuit board with buttons to select from 5 different sound options -- piano, drums, guitar, cat meows or record your own! • 7 brightly colored wire clips to connect your bananas and other objects (bananas and objects not included) • Cat ear speaker headband to broadcast your beats • Sticker sheet to decorate • Requires 3x AAA batteries (included) • Ages: 6+ years

5 Stars By James on 1969-12-31 Mc2 Succeeds AGAIN! Not a cheap plastic toy...Fun, colorful, engaging! This is one of those toys that gives back to the whole family! Great for encouraging experiments, music, science and all the fun "gadgetry" kids thrive on! The package comes WITH 3 AAA batteries (already installed) in the controller (which is shaped like a video game controller!) Bright colors, GREAT sound through the kitty headset, stickers to decorate and easy to use. The wire that you use for "grounding" or holding onto, needs to have the metal portion on your finger tip for best connection. (Instructions do not clearly state this.) Overall, this toy is more than just a cheap plastic toy, and yes, it IS worth paying the money for. Just figuring out which fruits/veggies etc will conduct electricity so YOU can conduct music is an A+ toy in my book. The wires that connect to the actual controller need to be pressed in all the way firmly. If you choose to use 6 glasses of water, the sound back will change dependent on the amount of water in each glass (which means, endless possiblilities!) There is also a record option that lets you record your own voice/words/singing and play it back as music! My 8 year old loves this product. It seems like a toy that won't get old quickly and was built to last a long time. Make sure you have 3AAA batteries as back up....because this is going to be one of those toys they play with over and over again. Another GREAT creation from the folks at Mc2! Highly recommend. ***NOTE: Any of the cords may be used as the grounding finger! Doesn't have to be the blue cord!!!***
4 Stars By Avid Reader on 2017-01-22 Great Gift Our 10 year old granddaughter squealed with glee when she opened this gift. Within 2 hours, she began hooking things up. This series of interactive toys is a winner for her age group.

3 Stars By DaisyBrain on 2017-01-05 Just okay The recording feature is nice. We had a hard time getting the leads to function properly, or at least at the same time.
