LittleBits Electronics Kits for Kids - from $15 @ JB Hi-Fi (Click and Collect)

250

Following mingofmongo's post on the LittleBits Korg Synth Kit, I've been on the lookout for more of these kits. Looks like JB has a bunch of them on discount, with the basic (but still cool) ones starting from $15 (were $79). Unfortunately, most are for click and collect (no shipping) but it might be worth trying your luck at your local JB even if click and collect is not offered. JB Hi-Fi in Blacktown still had a couple of kits over the weekend.

Crawly Creature

Bubble Bot

Night Light

Arcade Game

Also available is the Avengers Hero Inventor Kit for $69, which seems like a pretty good price, based on pricing at other stores.

    if you have no luck finding these, you can probably get equivalent parts from ebay etc for a few dollars.
    To avoid soldering, use a breadboard. Better, for older kids, start with a $5 Arduino Uno clone.

    Plenty of websites have simple project ideas for kids, so you don't need to know anything before.
