Toy Type AE Active Toy CO Construction Toy ES Educational Skills SA STEM / STEAM The Rule Your Room Kit gives your child the magic touch. With a handful of littleBits electronic building blocks and the brains in your head, your child can now transform any boring old object into an awesome, interactive invention. It's easy as your young inventor starts off with instructions. Then your child can close his or her eyes and point to something - and then make an invention out of it. Try a poster that jumps off the wall, or a secret box on the shelf that only your child can open. Your child soon has everything needed to defend his or her domain from intruders, make games from scratch, play a prank, or create the coolest room around. The Kit gets a child started with seven Bits, accessories, and a step-by-step guide to create eight inventions from the stuff that is owned. From there, level-up inventing with a challenge to create a unique contraption with the objects around. Your child will use problem-solving, engineering, and design skills to take the same challenge 50 times and make 50 different inventions. The included guide is filled with ways to personalize and customize creations, and empowers your child to use the Bits over and over again to create infinite inventions. Need some inspiration?
