How many of us had one of these growing up. If memory servesÂ correctly, this model was the most popular. There was a 200 in 1 kit that came out about a year or two after this one. It was priced just enough in that my parents uttered the words “you think money grows on trees?”
I would try and justify why didn’t need the 200 in 1 so I would tell myself that I really didn’t need the last 50 experiments. I would also compare looks – the wood is cool, plastic looks cheezy.
While I never did get the 200 in 1 kit, I survived just fine. While my life took the path away from electrical engineering, who knows what influences the last 50 experiments would bring.
