This totally rad, educational play kit will stimulate the mind and excite the ears. The 13-piece boxed set contains everything you need to build your very own mini axe guitar! The experience will teach your kiddo about basic circuitry and currents, and allow them to observe how to apply that knowledge to making music. Each kit contains: 6 strings, 4 plastic connections, 1 piezo pickup, 1 amplifier module, 1 speaker, and carboard pieces for the amp and guitar body. It is as fun to put together as it is to play, and offers a hands on way for kids to pick up important STEAM skills. What’s more, it’s a great entry point for learning about more complex topics like music production, sound engineering, sound waves, and electronics. A truly superb gift for the kid with a curious mind or a budding Jimi Hendrix. Suitable for ages 8 and up
