Snap Circuits is a line of electronic kits manufactured by Elenco Electronics and aimed at children eight years and older.[1] The kits come in a variety of sizes, offering a range of building experience for the user, and may include motors, lamps and speakers. The kits consist of a breadboard with prewired interconnections, into which the various components can be snapped to easily create a working circuit.

Snap Circuits has been praised[1][2] for exposing young children to elementary engineering concepts.

A line entitled Snap Circuits Jr., geared towards younger children also exists.
