I purchased this Elenco – Two IC AM Radio Kit (Amazon Prime) as a small project to do with my son Isaiah (age nine). It does not require more than an hour or two of assembling. The PCB pads are nice and large, allowing a fair amount of slop and use of too much solder. The parts are easy to place and generally robust. The ferrite rod was dropped and cracked in several places; we repaired it with a bit of hot glue.
