In the Maker Shed: littleBits Starter Kit V0.2

Looking for a simple, fun way to get your little ones into electronics? Check out the littleBits Starter Kit V2.0 available in the Maker Shed! littleBits are fun, intuitive, space-sensitive blocks that make prototyping with sophisticated electronics a matter of snapping small magnets together. Each bit has a simple, unique function (light, sound, sensors, buttons, thresholds, pulse, motors, etc), and modules snap to make larger circuits. Included in the kit are 10 color coded modules (power, input, output, and wire) that connect together to create number of electronics projects. The starter kit includes everything you need to get started, including a custom 9V battery and a screwdriver for adjusting the bits. Each kit comes packaged in an attractive, separated cardboard box with a magnetic (of course!) closure.


  • A quick-start instruction set.
  • A custom-made 9V battery
  • A 9V battery connector.
  • Custom plastic screwdriver
  • Separated storage box.

10 littleBits:

  • power

The Maker Shed is brought to you by Maker Media, the makers of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Faire, and much more.

Launched originally as a source for back issues of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Shed expanded rapidly to meet the demand for 'projects in a box,' otherwise known as kits. Now we have a little bit of everything for makers, crafters, and budding scientists, from Arduinos to sock monkeys to chemistry sets .
