Circuit Maze
Circuit Maze safely teaches complex concepts of electricity in a creative and entertaining way with a series of circuit-building logic puzzles. Select one of 60 cards, then place the shown pieces on the board to complete the circuit and light up the beacons. Circuit Maze puts the principles and concepts of electrical circuits right into your child’s hands. Simple and advanced circuitry concepts are explored, such as series circuits, parallel circuits, series and parallel circuits in combination, and parallel circuits in bypass. Reasoning and logic skills coupled with how electricity and electrical circuits work makes Circuit Maze a wonderful introduction to electrical engineering.

    ”My kids just loved the challenges of the Circuit Maze. I have found them spending a lot of time working on the challenges. With each challenge, I know it requires them to think about how to make the circuit work. You can practically see the wheels turning in their heads as they work on each challenge.”

    Enjoyable

    My daughter enjoys completing the Circuit Maze challenges, which are great for introducing her to electrical circuits while boosting her critical thinking skills.

    We love smart games and decided to mix it up with this.

    This is pretty cool because it’s a smart games that introduces the science of electrical currents. My child loves it. My only complaint is that the tiles pop out pretty easily and this interrupts the current and solving the puzzle. The lights will flicker if the contacts don’t precisely line up. I wish it wasn’t so touchy, but overall it’s a good one.

    My 6-year old daughter is very interested in electrical circuits and puzzles. This has just the right amount of challenge to it. She has loved working the puzzles and asks to play frequently.

    Fun!

    My son loves this game! Unfortunately, we have one light that just won't work. I suggest trying the most difficult puzzles to make sure it works before you introduce it to your children. That way you can avoid any disappointment if it doesn't work correctly. I hope my case is an outlier. Other than that, it is a game that makes your child's gears turn!

    Bought this as a birthday gift for a very mathematically gifted 8 year old boy who wants to be an engineer like his dad someday. He loves it! I rely on Timberdoodle's recommendations for the perfect gift for all our friends' children and they always deliver!
