Letting your imagination soar and your creativity go wild is not something we get to do as much now that we are adults. If only our kids knew just how good they have it. Especially when they have cool toys like the littleBits Droid Inventor Kit available to them. Kids can create their own custom Droid and bring it to life it with littleBits electronic blocks. Who doesn’t want to have their own droid?
littleBits makes a platform of easy-to-use electronic building blocks empowering everyone to create inventions, large and small. A couple of months ago, I was able to learn more about the littleBits Droid Inventor Kit and actually work on one with some of my blogging buddies while I was in LA. What we lacked in our decorating skills, we made up for in having fun.
With the littleBits Droid Inventor Kit your child(ren) get to create, play and invent.
What I loved is that you are essentially creating your own droid from scratch. Without even realizing it, the kiddos are incorporating Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM) into their playtime.
Once the droid is how they want it to be, they can also go on 16+ missions in the free app.
What’s great is that the fun doesn’t stop once it is assembled. You can continue to customize and reconfigure new powers your droid. Actually, they encourage that! littleBits has announced their littleBits Competition. Kids, families, and Star Wars fans —residing in the US, UK, and Canada – to share their own unique Droid creations with the global inventor community. Fans and families will be able to submit their own leading-edge Droid design creations, judged by Star Wars: The Last Jedi stars Daisy Ridley (the actress who portrays Rey in the current Star Wars trilogy) and Kelly Marie Tran (the actress who portrays Rose Tico in Star Wars: The Last Jedi) alongside Ayah Bdeir (founder and CEO of littleBits) and Kathleen Kennedy (president of Lucasfilm). Check out more info about the competition–and the cool prizes–here: https://shop.littlebits.cc/pages/starwars. Just be sure to get your entry submitted by January 10, 2018 for your chance to win.
