Building your own electronics is very fun and a good way to get a better understanding of how electronic gadgets work. Hobbytron has a kit that has all the stuff in it that you need to build your own working 1930’s replica radio.

The hard stuff is pre-wired to make the build easier for younger kids just beginning. Assembly consists of plugging in various components like the antenna and ground wire and making final tuning adjustments to get the radio working.The kit also includes different coils that allow you to receive transmission from different frequencies like AM and shortwave. A set of headphones is included as well so you can listen without disturbing others in your home. The radio is powered by 8 AA batteries.
