littleBits

littleBits is a series of electronic colour coded building blocks designed to simplify the  complexities of electronics. With a magnetic snap together joining system, cleverly designed to ensure each building block can only be joined one way, it provides a simple yet effective way to get the children inventing from not only day 1, but minute 1. As simple as you like and as complex as you can imagine, hours of fun learning for everyone.
