What can I create with this kit?
Get into the holiday spirit with this moving festive bell (manufactures code MK122). Made out of 83 LEDs in yellow, red and green this bell switches between two sets of LEDs giving the impression of moving from side to side. The 104 parts come together to create this great kit for Christmas or other celebrations.

What can I learn with this solder kit?
Practise soldering and learn about electronics and circuits with this kit which uses resistors, capacitors, transistors, and LEDs to create a fun and festive bell. Learn how they are connected in a circuit and get practical experience soldering them to create the moving bell.. You can even experiment with the way you wire the LEDS to see what difference it makes to the moving image.. This kit requires a soldering iron and solder and may require wire cutters.

How easy is this kit to solder?
Simple to solder, this bell solder kit is ideal for beginners learning about electronics. And building the kit’s only the beginning. You could also create a display (not included) for the bells to protect the electronics or stamp your own mark on the kit. It runs off a DC 9-12V power supply and comes with a battery holder for a 9V (PP3) battery (battery not included) and a power jack for a mains or car adapter (not included).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Animated Bells This proved to be a simple circuit to build. Care needs to be taken when soldering in the components, particularly the LEDs. Fortunately my project worked first time although I had a dry joint on one LED. The effect looked fantastic, particularly when we turned the room lights down. I can definitely recommend it for the amateur constructor although youngsters may get bored halfway through soldering the LEDs. There are a few more Christmassy projects too - try them out, I did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ding Dong - Let the fun begin as Christmas approaches Bought three bargain priced kits for UK and overseas grandkids for Christmas, having successfully built two before. Some soldering skill needed in places but reasonably straightforward to assemble. 83 parts to solder, and care is needed not to overheat joints or solder pads can lift. Bit disappointed with that... Units worked first time and "swinging bell" is eye-catching. Kids love them. Another great Velleman kit!
