Bring a Star Wars Droid to life: Droid Inventor Kit

This Christmas, spark creativity and inspire kids to get inventive with the Droid Inventor Kit from littleBits, a newly launched toy that enables kids to create and power up their very own mechanical Droid using electronic Bits.

The Droid Inventor Kit enables kids to create a Droid – including R2-D2 – and customize it in unique ways. Together with the free Droid Inventor app, kids can send their creations on 17 awesome missions! The Droid can also be reconfigured in new and unique ways, offering  kids fun in many forms – a gift that will bring joy far beyond Christmas.

‘We’ve created a gender-inclusive toy that celebrates kids’ own self-expression and ingenuity, while showcasing the same characteristics of imagination, grit and invention that are embodied in the Star Wars franchise. This is a Christmas gift that empowers kids and people to be creators, not just consumers of technology.’ – Ayah Bdeir, founder & CEO of littleBits

The Droid Inventor Kit includes all the components needed for kids to create their very own Droid. A free app (iOS and Android) completes the experience, providing step-by-step instructions and how-to videos. The app guides kids as they put together their Droid and control it in Drive Mode, Self-Nav, Force Mode, and more, making it the ultimate galactic sidekick

After mastering their Droid Inventor skills, kids continue on to challenges that spark creativity and inspire them to create unique new Droids. Each littleBits electronic block has a different function such as a power, motor, or sensor, which kids can use with their Droid in new and exciting ways. Included stickers and in-app missions encourage kids to customize their Droid using crafts or household objects, giving their Droid its own special personality.

The Star Wars Droid Inventor Kit retails for $159.95 and is available now.
