littleBits $89

littleBits is an excellent way to introduce young people to electronics prototyping sans soldering and without the danger of accidentally frying components. Each bit has a unique function (light, sound, sensors, buttons, pulse, motor) and you simply snap them together magnetically to create larger circuits. No soldering, no wiring, no programming — just snap and play.
