We’ve got two more limited edition enamel pins in the store! We won’t have these pins for long, so once they’re gone, that’s it! Get yours today!
First up, Blinka Ouroboros!
The ouroboros is a compelling, allegorical symbol appearing in numerous settings of Greek, Egyptian, Hindu, and Renaissance ancient world mythologies. Translated to “tail-devourer” in Greek, the ouroboros represents repetition, renewal, and the eternal loop of time.
Just like CircuitPython. Wait, what? No, really! Hear me out. Python is an interpreted language with the ability to interpret itself. This means we get cool stuff like eval() and lambda(). Heck, you can even build a Y combinator, the function that can create recursive functions. How’s that for eating your own tail?
But these enamel pins won’t last long, so get yours today!
Next up, Nimbus the Friendly Cloud Entity!
The Internet of Things can be in all the things! Nimbus the Friendly Cloud Entity is here to help you learn how to connect everything you need and nothing you don’t. No gloomy, overcast skies here! The possibilities are endless, especially since the technology’s advancing almost every day, with Adafruit at the forefront of innovation.
If walls could talk. If fridges could email. If toasters could tweet. If garbage cans could blog. If sinks could post stories. If stoves could code.
Whether you’re making projects with Feather Huzzah, or cobbling IoT beginner kits like the Microsoft IoT Pack, Nimbus will make all your IoT dreams come true (from anywhere!)
This little cloud’s cute smile and warm embrace will shine brightly over your maker work. Let Nimbus be your new meteorological amigo and pin Nimbus to your jacket or messenger bag with its sturdy butterfly clasp!

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.
