Playground for BBC Micro:Bit - Starter Kit

This is an exciting new way to use your micro:bit, with addon components, but without requiring crocodile clips which can be difficult for small people to use.

Also, this new approach allows the use of a single cable for most addons, instead of 3 crocodile clips

This Starter Kit Includes:
  • Playground for Micro:Bit (Micro:Bit is optional extra)
  • 4 x Connection Cables
  • Traffic Light Gizmo
  • Dial Gizmo
  • Buzzer Gizmo
  • 2 x Flame Gizmos
  • Prototyping Gizmo

Features:
  • Fittings for your BBC micro:bit (micro:bitnot included, unless selected)
  • Battery holder for 2xAA batteries permanently fitted (batteries not included)
  • Sturdy On/Off switch
  • Blue power indicator LED
  • White LEDs on all 3 inputs to show when active
  • All Micro:Bit Input / Outputs are brought to croc clip compatible connectors so you can continue to use existing components
  • Each new connector includes the signal as well as power and ground
  • Fast and easy to connect

Other Gizmos - Available now
Many Gizmos are already available and more are on the way. Each Gizmo connects directly to the Playground with usually one connection cable (Traffic Lights uses 3 cables, one for each colour). Note that the Motor Gizmo is not compatible with micro:bit.
As with our Crumbs, the Gizmos are colour coded:
  • Blue - Digital Input (eg. Button)
  • Yellow - Analog Input (eg. Dial)
  • Black - Digital Output (eg. Buzzer)
  • Red - Analog Output (eg. motors)
  • White - Smart pixels ("Sparkles")
