  • 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.


    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
