You can’t bake a cake without flour, sugar, and baking soda? Cream cheese? Muscadet? Ok – to be honest we don’t do much cake baking. But we do light up a TON of NeoPixel LED strips! They’re everywhere – from our Firewalker LED Sneakers to our FloraBrella – and we can’t think of better essentials to get you started than these Adafruit NeoPixel LED Strip Starter Packs.
With very minimal or even no soldering you’ll have a super glowy strip obeying your every command!
Note: The 5V Trinket shown in photos is not included! You will need this or another type of microcontroller to control the LED strip. We recommend Arduino UNO, Adafruit Metro,Trinket 5V or Pro Trinket 5V but many other microcontrollers may work if they have a NeoPixel or WS2812 library available. 5V logic and power is required.

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.
