150 in 1 Electronic Project Kit

These kits, do you remember them? Can you hear the sound of the wires as they shuffled on the cardboard surface, the creak of the springs as you inserted the wires, the crackle in the earpiece from slightly loose connections?

 

One of my favorite toys from the 70's. Shown here wired up as "The Big Ear" project: A high gain amplifier, using the speaker as a microphone.

 

Someone's scanned parts of the 1977 Radio Shack catalog This is the page that featured the 150 in 1 as a new product for 1977. There's a larger image on page page 154 of the 1977 Radio Shack Catalog.
