This is such a cool gift with a great story from Tim Bartlett to his daughter:
My grandfather built a panel of light switches from WWII surplus for my dad as a toddler, and my dad built a panel of buttons connected to indicator lights for me. So now, I’ve built the Model C, a set of light switches for my daughter. It’s easier than holding her up to play with the house lights.
