littleBits Base Kit
What is littleBits?

littleBits makes an opensource library of electronic modules that snap together with tiny magnets for prototyping, learning, and fun. The winner of countless awards from Popular Science, Crain’s , Maker Faire and more. littleBits consists of tiny circuit-boards with specific functions engineered to snap together with magnets. No soldering, no wiring, no programming, just snap together for prototyping, learning and fun. Each bit has a specific function (light, sound, sensors, buttons, thresholds, pulse, motors, etc), and modules snap to make larger circuits. Just as LEGO allows you to create complex structures with very little engineering knowledge, littleBits are small, simple, intuitive, blocks that make creating with sophisticated electronics a matter of snapping small magnets together. littleBits are mistake-proof and every module & kit we make can work with any other module & kit allowing you to grow your library of littleBits and create even more possibilities.

What’s in the kit?

The Base Kit is our introductory collection of littleBits and perfect for kids and younger makers just getting started with littleBits. Kit includes: DC Motor, Buzzer, Light Sensor, Bargraph, Button, Dimmer, Power, Wire (2), Bright LED, screwdriver, 9-volt battery + cable, 20+ page instruction/project booklet

10 powerful modules

Base Kit is our introductory kit and best suited to children and younger makers just getting started with littleBits. It comes with fun modules like the DC motor (add motion to a creation!) and the button (action is just a button push away). You can add onto the Base Kit with any other bit modules or kits in the littleBits library to expand the creative possibilities.

Mistake-proof building

littleBits connect with magnets making connecting them mistake-proof and easy. Modules are color coded to make circuit assembly easy. It all starts with Power (blue modules). Input modules, like a button, are pink. Wire modules are orange and let you connect different modules together. Output modules like the DC motor are green.

DC Motor module

Featured module: DC motor

Each littleBits module is powerful in their own right. In the case of the DC motor, it rotates a shaft when you send it an ON signal. It even has a switch to set the direction of rotation! It also includes the motorMate– an accessory that makes it easy to attach wheels, paper, cardboard, and lots of other materials to the motor. Try attaching various items to the DC motor to make windmills, cars, helicopters and more.

Button module

Featured module: Button

The button is a classic: big, round and springy for comfortable pressing! Push to turn your creation on, and release to turn it off. Snap a buzzer in place after your button to sound out signals in morse code!

Light Sensor module

Featured module: Light Sensor

The light sensor measures how much light is shining on it. It has two modes: “light” and “dark. ” In “light” mode, the more light shines on the sensor, the higher the signal it sends out. In “dark” mode, it’s just the opposite – the signal increases the darker it gets. You can use a screwdriver to adjust the sensitivity. Use a bargraph to see how it’s working!

Buzzer module

Featured module: Buzzer

The buzzer Bit is just what it sounds like: it makes a noise that you just can’t ignore. It buzzes whenever it gets an ON signal. Try using it to make your own doorbell or alarm!
