For those who fear soldering... Please, have someone teach you.
Just having someone teach and letting you solder a few joints will give you the skill. $20.00 for a reasonable soldering kit and a few minutes with someone else to guide you and you'll have a life time skill and tools.

LED circuits are even easier than electronic kits. At Maker Faire events they teach kindergarteners how to solder. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_wWcuGRFM9I

There are a lot (too many) learn to solder videos on You Tube. Some of the posters solder worse than my kid did two weeks after he learned - when he was nine.
