They still do, some even still come in a case. There are also Arduino and RaspberryPi kits.

I used these growing up: 130 in one

This one is out of stock, but there are others around the 50 dollar mark.

Electrical engineer here...if you want to get into micro electronics and digital circuits (and you're a total beginner) go pick up one of those kits for kids. There are some that are very helpful for teaching you the basic of circuits (Ohm's Law) and stuff as well as helping you troubleshoot simple circuits. You don't want to jump right in with a fx generation, oscilloscope, DMM and try to make a complex circuit using ICs and MOSFETS and stuff as you'll just get frustrated and confused (as well as damage/destroy components).

You really don't want to skip the basics. Even in college we all ended up destroying so many resistors and chips while bread boarding things that we actually ran out of some components and some of us couldn't finish our labs.

It's a great and fun hobby to have with a great community of very smart people (especially if you get into things like Arduino, Raspberry Pi and stuff).

TL;DR: Learn the basics, get a child's electronics kit and go from there. Work up to all the other things.

Edit: I had something like this as a kid: http://www.amazon.com/Vintage-Sports-Cards-MX-906-Electronic/dp/B00005K2SY/ref=sr_1_69?ie=UTF8&qid=1412357116&sr=8-69&keywords=beginner+circuits+kit

Well... that's a big question. I would start by getting a book on basic electronics, learn how to read a schematic, then buy a simple 1001 electronic experiments kit learn a bit about the fundamentals, then, probably try a very simple DIY synth build, or do some Circuit Bending before you attempt a build of this magnitude. You might also want to play with an Arduino, those are lots of fun.

An electronics learning kit like this one always interested me. I've since played with electronics as an adult and I'm sure I would have loved that as a kid.

I like your idea, but IMHO this is what you use to get your kid into electronics:

It worked for me.

It's easier than ever to get into electronics these days. Make Magazine (actually, O'Reilly) publishes a wide variety of books, including starter books on electronics and simple computer circuits.

Also, Amazon sells some kits for folks who want to get their feet wet (tho wet feet aren't a very safe way to work in this field). This one is meant for teenagers who are probably younger than you are, but it will take you to the right part of Amazon:

If you're working from a book rather than a kit, you can order parts, even in ones, from suppliers like Digikey.com For orders under $25, they charge an extra $5. Even so, they're much cheaper than Radio Shack. Also, look up Sparkfun Electronics and their collection of books, kits, and free online projects.

At the minimum, you'll need a multimeter (volts, amps, ohms). Check ebay for these. A soldering iron is a useful tool, but a cheap one can be more trouble than it's worth. Better to use a solderless prototyping board (see Amazon or Digikey) at first.

I think much of engineering is like that...it's insane what they expect us to learn in 4 years. I had to take a circuits course, and then my dynamic systems professor happened to be an EE, so most of our crazy-long homework sets and exams involved circuits. Our CAD course was a two-hour class each week with homework that would take everyone hours to complete, but it only counted for 1 credit. All 4 of my chemistry labs were 2 credits each, but they were 9 hours per week in lab, plus all the time it took to study for quizzes and write lab reports. I actually talked to the department chair about that, and he told me that he knew the labs should be at least 4 credits each, but they couldn't make them worth that much or they'd exceed the amount of credits they were allowed to require for graduation. So they left them at 2 credits despite the time and workload being so staggering. It was like that across the board. Hooray for technical majors, right? I guess this explains the high level of depression and dissatisfaction among students majoring in engineering or science.

I hope you're already seeing the light at the end of the tunnel (and might I add it's pretty neat you're the only other BME I've met on here, and you're a girl--yay!).

Also, this conversation reminded me of one of my favorite toys as a kid. XD

Get something like this to learn the basics:
http://www.amazon.com/Vintage-Sports-Cards-MX-906-Electronic/dp/B00005K2SY/ref=sr_1_1?s=toys-and-games&ie=UTF8&qid=1313696934&sr=1-1

The various parts in there will be useful when you start breadboarding stuff.

and this to learn soldering:

You might have a local hackspace where people would be willing to help you out if you are having trouble with the soldering.
