Fun inventions made fast
LittleBits is a system of circuit building blocks designed to help you realize your ideas in no time.
Traditional circuitry has a lot of barriers between an idea and an invention. You have to plan and draw the circuit, get a silicone breadboard, and painstakingly solder a bunch of wires and components to it.
LittleBits reimagines the system with modules that magically snap and stay together, so your inventions instantly work.
Solder is harder to use than it is to spell. Lucky for you, you won’t need it (thanks, LittleBits)!
Each module in the kit firmly connects to the next using a pair of rare earth magnets. The pair’s polarity makes certain that you connect the modules the right way every time and complete the circuit. They’re strong enough to stay together, but you can still pull them apart again to add more modules or repurpose them for a new invention.
This is the remix!
In addition to ease and speed, magnetically connecting modules have another advantage. You can disassemble earlier inventions and reuse the parts for something new. Create a bubble machine, turn it into a car, then take the whole thing apart and make a wireless security alarm.
How to be an inventor
Starting off with an open set of unlimited possibilities can seem intimidating, so LittleBits Gizmos & Gadgets includes a book filled with clear instructions to give you a start at creating twelve inventions.
Each of the full-colored project instructions also includes a way to repurpose the invention to make something new. Once you’ve used the guide to show you the power of each module, it’s time to take the training wheels off and make something entirely new.
Gizmos, gadgets, and more
LittleBits Gizmos & Gadgets includes a collection of fifteen modules that convert battery power into electricity, switch it on or off, move it from here to there, and use it to make something happen.
Forty-eight accessories help you add in other elements from off your shelf (like Lego bricks, paper and cardboard, and even Tiny Hands) to make your inventions more creative than ever.
Question: What age group is this appropriate for?
Answer: The manufacturer recommends LittleBits Gizmos & Gadgets for ages eight and up.
Question: Does it have enough material to make all the projects at once?
Answer: There are practically an endless number of ways to use LittleBits to create new inventions, which isn’t possible to do at once with the included modules. You will need to re-purpose parts from some of the gizmos in the instruction manual to create other gadgets in the same manual. However, you can always put them back together again.
