These three Short Female Headers alone are, well, lonely. But pair them with any of our ItsyBitsy boards, and you’re in business!
These headers are particularly cute and tiny with a body height of just 5.0 mm they are the best way to minimize the amount of space your ItsyBitsy project takes up, but still maintain that flexible configuration. “Normal” socket headers have an 8.5mm body height so this saves you a whole 3.5mm (hey it adds up!) For ultimate skinniness, match these up with equally short male headers. You can use common 8.5mm-long male headers but to get them to sit flush you may need to cut the pins down by a few mm, so just be aware of that!

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.
