  • Overview

    The littleBits Droid Inventor Kit empowers your kids to create their own Droid — including R2-D2 from Star Wars — and bring it to life. Using littleBits electronic blocks and the free Droid Inventor app, kids can teach their R2 Unit new tricks and take it on more than 17 missions. Then they can expand their inventor expertise and reconfigure their Droid to give it new skills, or design any Droid they can dream up. The kit comes with everything kids need to build and customise R2-D2 straight out of the box.

    Initial assembly is easy with in-app, step-by-step instructions on iPhone or iPad that explain how to build a Droid and how to control it in drive mode, self-nav, Force mode and more. After mastering their Droid Inventor skills, kids move on to challenges that spark creativity and get them inventing brand-new Droids.

    Highlights

    Comes with everything to create and control Droids, including the battery, stickers and extra accessories

    Easy step-by-step, in-app instructions help kids quickly build their first Droid — then challenge them to expand their inventor skills by building new custom Droids

    Enhance your Droid’s abilities by incorporating any Bits or kits from the littleBits collection — they all work with each other

    Kids can teach R2-D2 new skills and send it on more than 17 special Star Wars missions

    Each electronic block has a different function (motor, sensor, speaker, etc.), so kids can reassemble R2-D2 in new ways and transform it into any Droid they can dream up

    Stickers and in-app missions help kids get creative — inventing their own R2 unit with crafts and household objects and giving it a unique personality

    More than 20 authentic R2-D2 sounds from the Star Wars films provide an excitingly realistic experience

    You can configure littleBits electronic blocks and Droid parts in different ways to create brand-new Droids.

      My nephews loved this!!

      I bought this for my twin nephews' 10th birthday. They loved it! It was so fun for them to step into the role of an inventor and explore building something! Lik I bought this for my twin nephews' 10th birthday. They loved it! It was so fun for them to step into the role of an inventor and explore building something! Like most kids these days, their lives are increasingly about video games, cell phones, the internet, etc. I was so happy to find them a gift that incorporated their love of technology with some real-world application! I recommend getting this for any budding engineers, or die-hard Star Wars fans.

      Toy of the Year

      This is not your average R2. It is so much more, I was lucky enough to get early access to the product, and I must say, my 9 year old daughter fell in love with This is not your average R2. It is so much more, I was lucky enough to get early access to the product, and I must say, my 9 year old daughter fell in love with it. She was so proud when she finished building Artoo, that she parading him around the house, in the kitchen, laundry, and even took it to bed. Can't wait to try the missions

      Star Wars & STEM in the box.

      This a neat little droid (not too small though - great size) that incorporates the marketing / popularity of Star Wars, as well as proving a great introduction This a neat little droid (not too small though - great size) that incorporates the marketing / popularity of Star Wars, as well as proving a great introduction to STEM based learning and Robotics. Kids can personalise / customise the look which will keep them interested and is easy enough to use to get them going, but lets them develop as well. It's a great toy. Mums & Dads will be happy to help out as they can relate to the character and it does some cute stuff. A great gift idea!

I can see Dad and the kids putting theses Droids together - a great family project achievement.
