Lots of creative and smart play time By:
Product is good quality and is a great way to teach kids valuable skills like coding. Love the avengers theme.
Fun, Never-Ending Activities !!!! By:
I love that this kit teaches you so much about technology in a really accessible way and the activities from the app make learning about circuits really fun! I tried out the different activities with my friend and her kids and it was so awesome to see young elementary and middle-school kids understand how to assemble circuits so easily with littleBits !
Fun & learning at a value! By:
littleBits does it again! Last year I bought my 8 year old daughter the Droid Inventor Kit for her birthday and it was a hit! So much fun and I can feel good that she is learning while playing. That's why, when I saw the Avengers Kit from littleBits I knew we had to get it for her. I was not disappointed. The 'building' piece was a bit shorter than droid, which was probably good considering she got a little impatient last year, but the play time can go on for ever. So many different things you can do while learning about circuits and how to code. And, in true littleBits fashion, it encourages creativity by prompting her to create her own superpower. Obviously, it was to rewind life to get her out of trouble before it happened! Making a happy 9 year old this year!
Fun to build, easy to customize By:
I got this gift for my 8 year old cousin. He loves taking it apart and putting it back together and also loves coding new designs for the screen
This kit looks great! By:
I bought this for my daughter for Christmas but I couldn't help myself and decided to check it out. I'm impressed with how natural it feels to connect the different pieces together. There's an app that's required to use with it and it looks great as well!
Kids create their own hero identities—again and again! By:
The Avengers Hero Inventor Kit from littleBits is AMAZING. It’s filled with the tools that my kids need to create their own unique superhero gauntlet—again and again and again. All the Bits can be reconfigured depending on what kind of hero they want to be at any moment... and even better, while they take it apart and put it back together in new ways, they are learning robotics, circuitry, coding, and problem-solving. The product is sturdy, colorful, and most importantly, customizable. Amazing!
Costly By:
For bigfer kids. Very expensive. Smart tech.
Great Gift! By:
This is a present for a very creative child. I am so happy with this product line.
Huge hit at our house! By:
This was the first Little Bits kit that our kids have used and they loved it. Our 7 year old was able to get it set up with adult support and he loved getting to use the instructional video to use it. We bought a second Little Bits toy that our 10 year old was able to build entirely on his own. The inclusion of the app makes it fun and interactive for the kids.
STEM Activities Plus Real Play Value By:
Our household is no stranger to little bits, and this kit is one of their favorites. In truth, this is one of my favorites too.For starters, I thought the Iron Man arm on the box was just an illustration, and was surprised to find it inside the box (it serves as a stand for the gauntlet when the kid is not wearing it). Whenever I look at this thing I think "that's so cool". Unlike other Little Bits toys, which had a more Lego-like snap together construction, this kit was designed for active play, and after a week has held up well even with an enthusiastic 4 year old in the house.The core toy is a disk with a multi color LED display with a bluetooth connection that lets you program different colors, and even text. The disk has 45 LEDs that you can program individually in about 25 different colors. That's pretty awesome compared to my childhood when all we got were green foam hulk hands. There are other bits that up the interaction factor, including an accelerometer that changes the LED design as it moves and a light sensor that yields a similar effect. There's another sensor that makes superhero sounds.There's a special app just for this kit that walks through (in superhero fashion) the various activities and contains the bluetooth controls. I have found for my older 9 year son that the app is key to getting the most out of the kit. The Little Bits kits are relatively expensive, but for me the big selling point are the apps. On the other hand, my 4 year old was perfectly happy just getting to wear the finished product, running around with the lights and sound effects blazing.

Crystals By:
Giving this to a family member for Christmas. It looks like fun!
Great family-friendly gift idea! By:
Well-made and creative gift for science and nature-loving young adults.
A= By:
Great Gift
fun! By:
fun project to do with the kids. I could not get the grow stone out of the crystal, so I plan on using a drill (eventually). But they are pretty and the light idea is cool.
Must follow directions to a tee By:
Kids loved it, followed the directions and they came out great
We love this kit By:
When we bought this we thought it would be fun to have this activity with our grandkids and daily send thempictures as they grew. The crystal are lovely. One of the best, fun activity for an adult as well as for kids. You do needto help the kids.
End results are beautiful By:
I initially bought this for my niece but it was so tempting that my niece never knew about it 😈. It's fun and end results are pretty. Boil water, pour the boiled water in a bowl (exact water level marked on each cup), add the powder and stir until all powder is treated. Pour the solution into the cup, wait for 12 minutes and then drop the seed carefully into the solution. Place the cup in a dark area and keep it steady and untouched for 7 days. My end results are in the photos. Removing the seed is not that tricky, u need a knife and u need to remove the crystals forming around the seed edges. Once those are removed, stick the knife in between the seed and the crystal and gently remove the seed, crystal will be delicate at this time. Avoid cleaning the seed or exposing it to pressurized water directly when out of the cup.
So cool! My son loves it! By:
I bought this for my 4 y/o son who is always asking me to do experiments. We grew these crystals in a week and he (and I) think it’s the coolest thing. The night light display is actually very pretty. Great product!
