LittleBits Star Wars Droid Inventor Kit
An exciting build for Star Wars fans. From the moment you and your kids turn on the app and the Star Wars-like music comes on, the smiles begin. The kit includes everything needed (including the battery) to make the most popular droid ever to land in our galaxy. No, the phone pictured in this beauty shot is not included. You do need your own phone or i-pad to build and use the the droid. But, with this kit, R2D2 comes to life in the young inventor’s hands!
As always, littleBits’ step-by-step directions are clear and beautifully executed on phone or i-pad. The big clear parts of R2D2 come together with ease and the magnetic electronic blocks stay in place better than in earlier kits and without need for soldering. Included in the kit are plenty of stickers to make R2D2 or any other droid they can imagine. Once it’s built, the droid can be activated with controllers on the same phone or i-pad app. Kids can also set up the droid with an intruder alarm, and record and deliver messages. They can also teach their personal droid to detect obstacles in its path. R2D2 has a variety of endearing sounds. Although its head does not move as out tester wished it would, this is one of the best building sets of the season.
