The Stackinator

Turn on the lights with this game where the whole family can compete!

Duct Tape & Tube Flashlight

One of the most useful tools and earliest “electronic” toys any kid gets to play with is a flashlight. Learn how to build one and get electronics 101 in the process.

The Salt & Shakinator

How does salt respond to vibration? In interesting eddy patterns, of course. Check it out—then experiment with flour, sprinkles, or vinegar in oil too.

Mindreaderinator

Test your families psychic and electronics know-how with this simple game!

Personal Doorbell

Every kid wants a bit of privacy, and the sense ofrespect that a doorbell on their room can bring. Respect ‘em with littleBits.
