Chirp chirp! Make this delightful sound-making plush toy with the Sew-Your-Own Owl Kit and GEMMA plush toy guts kit. This simple circuit uses a tilt ball switch to trigger GEMMA to play a sound on the small speaker. You can program your own circuit to make other sounds too, so you can even mod a plush toy you already have!
This is a beginner level sewing and soldering project. This tutorial has detailed photos for each step of circuit assembly and installing the circuit into the toy, and the owl kit comes with detailed printed instructions recommended for slightly experienced stitchers as young as eight.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
