Wooden Torch Kit
We give you a precision lasercut wooden kit and the electronics you need to build a fully functional, durable wooden torch. This is the most common birthday present choice in our kit range and is recommended for ages 9+. It will take between 1-2 hours to build this kit depending on the child’s confidence level and ability.
“I am actually using these as gifts for two boys in the family. One who missed out on a birthday due to Lockdown, and is hard to buy for. I thought these were the coolest idea.” (Veronica)

Features of the Wooden Torch Kit
Kids gain confidence by making a torch that really works and they can use.
Kids learn STEM skills hands-on as they see how a battery works and learn to recognise real electronic components.
We aim for high standards of quality when designing our kits. These have not been put together for "a quick buck" but for a successful, fun and truly educational experience.
We make our kits here in NZ and choose sustainably harvested eco-plywood. Whenever we can, we choose natural materials. This includes our packaging. See more in About Us

You Will Need
You will need 3 x AA batteries, quality PVA glue and a Phillips screwdriver.
We suggest a small screwdriver with a 2mm head.
This torch will go for approximately 20 hours BUT it isn't uncommon for kids to leave one going for a day or so! That's why we also suggest rechargeable batteries such as the Eneloop brand available for places such as PB Tech and Mighty Ape.
