You asked for them, now they’re here! The breadboarding wire bundle that we include in the Arduino starter pack are now available seperately! The breadboarding wire bundle is a pack of 75 flexible stranded core wires with stiff ends molded on in red, orange, yellow, green, blue, brown, black and white. These are a major improvement over the “box of bent wires” that are sometimes sold with breadboards, and faster than stripping your own solid core wires. Makes breadboarding super fast. Available now in the Adafruit store.
Approximately 75 wires in a mix of colors
55 short wires 4.5″ (120mm) long
10 medium wires 5.5″ (150mm) long wires
5 long 7.5″ (190mm) long wires
5 x-tra long 10″ (250mm) long wires
Breadboard not included

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

If someone can find me a DIP equivalent for a 74AC11074D, I’ll buy a bundle!
I don’t do surface mount…not yet. and the board is laid out for DIP
A bundle of breadboarding wire that is…..
I got a bundle of these from some sort of educational place a while back… worth their weight in gold (almost)
Now… what the world needs now, are little plugs/junctions that you can use to connect them together.
Soldering is the Command-Line-Interface black-hole when it comes to kits etc. Normal people are frightened of it. You need four arms to do it etc. If there was some cheap and easy way to plug wires together, then…
… well, I would buy them and I’m not scared of soldering. I just like plugging things together.
Scratch that. I found through hole parts at Mouser. Don’t count digikey having everything.
