Just a quick note that the CircuitPlayground Express is awesome. My five year old daughter and I spend the afternoon using MakeCode
and exploring the extensive features and sensors built into the board. I just ordered some additional boards so we can explore the IR functionality and get the boards to “talk”.
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.
