Circuit Playground Express
Circuit Playground Express is the next step towards a perfect introduction to electronics and programming. We’ve taken the original Circuit Playground Classic and made it even better! Not only did we pack even more sensors in, we also made it even easier to program.

Start your journey with Microsoft MakeCode block-based or Javascript programming. Then, you can use the same board to try CircuitPython, with the Python interpreter running right on the Express. As you progress, you can advance to using Arduino IDE, which has full support of all the hardware down to the low level, so you can make powerful projects.You can even use CS Discoveries to learn all about coding right in your browser!

Uncased USB Flash Disk / Memory Stick – 2 GB
Create your own custom USB key by crafting, 3D-printing, molding, or laser cutting an enclosure that stands apart from boring every-day sticks. The Uncased USB Flash Disk / Memory Stick – 2 GB is the raw innards for a longer-style USB stick which makes it very slim, but also it has a few notches that make it easy to mold or model.

It’s plug-n-play so it works great with any computer or microcontroller in the Adafruit shop with a standard USB Type-A port. This unenclosed/uncased version is great for hobbyists or students who want to design their own hardware / memory stick enclosure but otherwise acts like any other USB key

USB to 5.5mm/2.1mm DC Booster Cable – 9V or 12V Output
This cable is kinda fascinating – it has an integrated boost converter, so you can plug it into any USB port (from a computer, battery pack, etc), and it will give you a higher DC voltage! It’s a handy way to power a 9V or 12V device. Unlike our other ‘USB booster’ cables, this one comes with a fancy lil display and a switch so you can select between 9V or 12V output and the voltage will be indicated. You can draw about 1A from 9V setting or 750mA from the 12V setting.

The cable comes with a 2.1mm inner diameter (5.5mm outer diameter) DC plug, arguably the most common, but also includes a 3.5mm / 1.35mm adapter.

13.56MHz RFID/NFC Clear Tag – NTAG203 Chip

This is a clear 13.56MHz RFID/NFC Tag with an NTAG203 chip – often used for train/bus passes, information sharing, and contactless payment, but also found in other systems where a proximity card is desired. The tag contains a small RFID chip and an antenna and is passively powered by the reader/writer when placed a couple inches away.

These can be read by almost any 13.56MHz RFID/NFC reader, but make sure it can handle ISO/IEC 14443 Type A cards (the standard NTAG uses) as there are a few other encoding standards (like FeLica).

USB Type C 3.1 PD to 5.5mm Barrel Jack Cable – 9V 5A Output – 1.2m long with E-Mark

This cable will let you get rid of all those wall adapters you have stashed in the plastic bin in the basement. Instead of multiple wall warts with different power and current capabilities, this cable will convert any USB Type C power adapter with Power Delivery (PD) support into a 9V DC power port, at up to 5 Amps output!

Inside the cable is a PD sink negotiation chip. When plugged into a proper PD Type C adapter that can provide 9V it will chat with the PD source chip in the power supply and tell it “Hey please change your output to 9V thankyouverymuch!”, and ta-da, you get 9V out on the DC barrel jack.

dLUX-dLITE Red Skull Shape LEDs 5 Pack by Unexpected Labs

Sure, we’ve got all sorts of diffused bare LEDs in all sorts of colors and sizes. But have you ever laid your peepers on this spooky set of skull-shaped LEDs? These look too cute and charming and will look amazing for any magic- or science-themed electronics project.

Add that extra zing to your project with these handmade LEDs from dLUX-dLITE. Each pack contains 5 uniquely crafted LEDs. Liven up your PCB, add a hidden surprise, or just collect them all! Please keep in mind these are handcrafted, making each LED unique and slightly different in appearance. They are all beautiful! We recommend you run them a bit dimmer, by adding a bit more resistance than you normally would with a typical LED. It shows off the details much better!

These also come in a Green Succulent Shape, Blue Kitty Shape, Cool White Kitty Shape and RGB Rainbow Cat Shape

Adafruit ESP32-S3 TFT Feather – 4MB Flash, 2MB PSRAM, STEMMA QT

We’ve got a new machine here at Adafruit, it can uncover your deepest desires. Don’t believe me? I’ll turn it on right now to prove it to you! What, you want your very own soft serve ice cream machine? OK well, that’s not something we can provide. But we can provide your second-deepest desire: an ESP32-S3 Feather board with a built in IPS TFT color display. It’s got all the delicious creamy goodness features of a Feather main board, the comforting warmth of an ESP32-S3 WiFi+BLE microcontroller, and the crispness of a 240×135 pixel color TFT display. All that and it will even plug in nicely into a breadboard, terminal block wing, or Feather Doubler or even just stack on top of another wing.

This Feather comes with native USB and 4 MB Flash + 2 MB of PSRAM, so it is perfect for use with CircuitPython or Arduino with low-cost WiFi. Native USB means it can act like a keyboard or a disk drive. WiFi means it’s awesome for IoT projects. And Feather means it works with the large community of Feather Wings for expandability.
