littleBits Gizmos and Gadgets Kit

(littleBits $199.95)

With this electronic app-enabled toolbox, kids can build 16+ “inventions” and use the app for still more. It’s like a 21st century magic kit that works! Kids will find clear step-by-step instructions for building a rover, a bubble bot, a prank package that opens to surprise friend, a spin mate sign, a rotolamp that will dance in the dark, a spin roller that flips as it rolls, an inchworm that crawls, a fan, a pinball machine and many more gizmos and gadgets. The toolbox puts electronic building bricks into their hands and provides all the guidance needed to build these and original inventions without the need for programming, soldering or wiring. Marked for 8 and up, we suggest that the younger range will need a parental coach for starters, but kids will soon be working on their own. For tens opening the box will be a thrilling start of a journey they can probably do with independence. We think 10 and up is the sweet spot for this gift. This is a gender free zone to be enjoyed by both boys and girls. A pricey but amazing STEM building toy for Tweens.

Ages: Tweens
