To say my littlest is inquisitive would be an understatement. He wants to know how things work. He loves to learn. But more than either of those things, he loves Star Wars! So anytime I can find a way to combine learning and discovering with Star Wars, I know I’ve got a sure fire way to bring learning fun to life in our home. Recently, he had the chance to try his hand at the littleBits R2-D2™ Droid™ and the Droid™ Inventor app and I have to say, I’ve never seen him so excited about learning, creating and then doing it all over again! In fact, he’s more inspired than ever to control his new Droid with challenges that spark creativity and allow him to customize brand-new Droids!

What We Thought of the littleBits Droid Inventor Kit
For us, the littleBits Droid Inventor Kit was learning fun at it’s finest! Assembly was super easy and the app provided “missions” to walk us step by step through the process of setting up our Droid and making it fully functional! I have rarely seen my son so engaged in creating and learning!
From the moment we opened the box and pulled out the parts, he was completely immersed in the experience of bringing his Droid to life. He carefully followed along with the steps and each time his Droid was able to complete a new task, his excitement grew!
While we are admittedly still completing missions and learning all that our littleBits Droid can do, I can say that I don’t see the fun ending any time soon! In fact, his Droid is the first thing he reaches for each day after school and I love watching him engage and learn and he teaches his Droid fun new commands!
This ready-to-assemble Droid from littleBits is the perfect learning toy in my opinion. I love seeing my son’s face light up as he completes missions and gives his new friend commands. I can’t imagine a more fun way to see his creativity bloom!
