Circuit Playground – Featured at Digi-Key.com @Digikey @makerio #circuitplayground
The folks at Digi-Key have a great showcase featuring Adafruit’s Circuit Playground! They do a great job of walking you through the hardware and the instructions for getting it set up.
Also tune in every weekend to Adafruit’s live channels to check out the series we are currently running in partnership with Digi-Key — Maker to Market! Which tells the story of Circuit Playground, from conception to production.
Also check out Circuit Playground on Maker.io, which is Digi-key’s new resource for makers.

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.
