Make a Twinkling Neopixel Parasol #ElectronicHalloween
This parasol will shield you from the fierce rays of the sun, and protect you from the dark, fearsome things of the night — from the Adafruit Learning System
Neopixels surround the parasol’s edge, giving a beautiful, customizable twinkling glow to its bearer. Learn to easily choose color palettes to go with your outfit for the evening, or stack up hundreds of different palettes for a light show that lasts all night without repeating.

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.
