Philips Electronic Experiment Kits in the various forms of the EE-series
(via the Cartoonist)
Science! Technology! Your Friend Electricity!
I remember mucking around with these kits as a tweenie.
Not the Philips ones though. T'was some Brit outfit like Branners? - vaguely connected with Meccano in some way as I half remember.
Anyway the big breakthrough was discovering how to deliver mild electric shocks to an unsuspecting sibling. "Just hold this for a second, thanks."

A qualifier. "unsuspecting" at first.It got quite Pavlovian after a while.

I think I was the unsuspecting younger sib in our family. My brother had an Electronics kit - but it was the chemical set that was to be feared.
I preferred the milder sport of engineering crashes on his train set.
