littleBits Smart Home Kit Review

You may remember our first post featuring the littleBits Deluxe Kit, which we love!  In fact, my oldest son in particular fell in love with littleBits and begged for the Smart Home Kit.  I contacted littleBits to see if they would be interested in another review and they said yes!  We were sent this kit to review in exchange for this blog post and our thoughts about it.

What exactly is littleBits?

littleBits is a simple way to learn and invent with electronics.  There is a vast module library and the modules snap together with magnets so it’s impossible to make a mistake. The library has over 60 modules and growing. littleBits kits come with individual Bits and detailed, step-by-step instructions for building your very first inventions.

The littleBits system is modular so every Bit works with every other Bit in the library!  There is tons of info on their website!

 

When the Smart Home Kit arrived, my 13 year old son was thrilled.  The other kids like it too, but this one was mainly for PacMan.

Even I didn’t really understand why he wanted it so badly, but he explained it to me {well, he tried}.  He had spent loads of time on the littleBits website researching the kits.  He actually begged for the One of Everything Collection, I laughed. The Smart Home Kit was the main kit he wanted and he has had so much fun with it.  It also combines with the Deluxe Kit we already had, so he is now able to create even more!

His favorite features of the Smart Home Kit are the following…

    Don’t ask me what each of those snazzy things do, I have no clue.  I am so not an electronics gal but am so glad he loves this and knows what each one is and why he loves it!
    One of his projects I snapped some photos of, a timer! he just loves creating and messing with stuff like this.  My husband really likes this too and is so thankful we now own these sets.
