Most of the things we stock take a fair amount of hacking to make work. Some solder, hot glue and a bit of smoke. Sometimes our plans are extravagant and things don’t get properly finished in time even if they kinda still work.

 

But that’s fun right? The point is that hacking robotics and electronics can be complicated. If you are young or you want a present for a young child it can be overwhelming.

To help we’ve got a range of kits in from Elenco in the USA. These are high quality, well designed and come with awesome manuals that guide you building electronics circuits. Ideal for ages 8 and up these kits are an excellent way to learn about electronics. We even have  kit that incorporates a PICAXE microcontroller for a way into microcontrollers. No soldering needed and all safe voltages.
