Never see any Philips Kit in Greece, but looks modern = no tubes

In Greece we have, or had, three companies making electronic kits,
the PSU kit with LM723  3-30V  3A did golden sales and still does.

Best present my parents ever bought me for my birthday. I was 13 back then in 1970 and remember astounding friends in school with such projects as the light to sound convertor. It really started my interest in electronics.

Philips "EE" electronic experiment kits.

This is a page with closeups of the components.. with the very impressiv(Hey its 36 years ago!!) LDR on the topp.

That is a modern one. I'm sure mine had glass OC71, OC45, and metal can AC127 and AC128 transistors.

I had an EE8 kit as a young lad back in about 1964 or so.

It came with an AF117 and an AC126 transistor, OA91 germanium diode, a bunch of resistors and capacitors, a little bulb with shroud a pot with knob a tuning capacitor, a length of ferrite rod (plus a pre-wound broadcast coil), a crystal/piezo earplug and a crude morse key.

I spent many a fond hour building (and rebuilding) and modifying the simple radios, flashing lights, water-level detector, morse key and other projects.

A wonderful way to get started in electronics -- do they still make such things?

Yes, I remember going through a few of those kits in the mid to late sixties. That was mind-blowing stuff at the time. I learned a lot from those kits and it started my hobby as well as my career I guess.  :)

I had one from Kosmos. Sigh! Those were the good old days.  :)

But I rember very well the EE 2007/08 from Philips. Always wanted to have one. It cost a fortune then.
