This crate had the perfect combination of engineering and science plus creativity and color!
Figuring out the wiring and circuits seemed intimidating to my son, but seeing the end result with all of the colors was well worth it for him.
Learning about the electricity of color was super interesting. Plus the video tutorial was very reassuring to my daughter. Thanks KiwiCo for all of the RGB fun!
