Yellow Judge
My son put it together, it did work. He didn't use it more than twice but it was fun to put together. Our wall socket isn't straight so we couldn't put it on the wall, he was a little disappointed in that. An average wall socket with an even wall would have worked.
This product is very easy to install, just tape some wires together and snap it together. The book teaches a lot of useful skills relating to electricity, mechanics, and magnitism. As a product, it doesn't work to my satisfaction. You have to be very close to the reciever to use the remote control and if you dont have the freshest batteries, it won't work. I have found better results using any TV remote control over the included one. If you really want to use a remote control light switch, then buy another product. If you want to entertain yourself for a few hours and learn a few things, then buy this.
This was probably one of the coolest books i have ever bought but the book didnt give you clear instrutions. Once you got this light switch to work is was well worth is but i wish it would have had clearer instrutions.
The idea is really nice- being able to turn on or off your light via remote. However, the batteries run out very frequently, and you must press down the remote button about 15 times to be able to switch the light. I agree with the other review that mentions television remote controls working better than the one provided. Although the buyer learns about electricity, I would not recommend it. By the end of the first day, I threw it away.
