We didn’t start out in the toy business, but we’ve always been in education. In fact, our first products were convergence generators built by engineers for television repairmen, and our first customer was an education provider. While our focus today is to bring fun into learning about electronics, one thing hasn’t changed: We still love engineering. We believe engaging minds in the excitement of building a real electronic device or a real working machine —no matter how simple—will never go out of style.
We still produce quality electronic instruments and test equipment, and we remain dedicated to creating affordable, safe and easy to use, educational toys that allow kids of all ages to use both sides of their brains and above all else, to Learn by doing®.
Family owned and operated since 1972, Elenco is located in the Chicago suburb of Wheeling, Illinois. We are proud to call ourselves the makers of the award-winning SNAP CIRCUITS® brand.
For 20 years, SNAP CIRCUITS® has been the go-to toy for teaching electronics, engineering and more. SNAP CIRCUITS® are endorsed by K-12 educators globally and used in schools, libraries, museums, after-school and homeschool programs, STEM and Maker programs, and at home.
Many of today’s rising leaders in science and technology learned the basics of engineering by creating and inventing with SNAP CIRCUITS® as a child.
