Adafruit’s CRICKIT is a Swiss Army knife for maker projects. It’s got NeoPixel outputs, sound output, motor drivers, servo connectors, capacitive touch input, and high current outputs. You probably won’t need all this for any one project, but it probably has all the bits you need for many of your projects, so it’s one accessory that you can use over and over again. What’s even better is that it comes in flavours that can attach to Circuit Playground Expresses, Raspberry Pis, micro:bits, and any Feather-compatible board, so you can use it with whatever controller board you like.

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.
