    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 Crumble (Crumble is optional extra)
    • 4 x Connection Cables
    • Traffic Light Gizmo
    • Dial Gizmo
    • Buzzer Gizmo
    • 2 x Flame Gizmos
    • Prototyping Gizmo
    See our blog for detailed usage and programming information

  • Motor Gizmo for Playground with Wheel (Crumble Only) (GIZMOTOR)
    Motor Gizmo for Playground
    (Works with Crumble Playground. Does NOT work with BBC micro:bit or Raspberry Pi)

    The Playground system is an easy way to connect from Crumble to useful Gizmos

    The Motor Gizmo provides an easy way to connect a motor with a wheel. Simply use one of the connection cables to connect from the Playground to the Gizmo. On the Crumble use the Motor 1 or Motor 2 output. You can then control the speed and direction of the motor very easily.

    This Gizmo uses a high quality metal-geared motor than runs at 80 rpm nominally at 6V. Using the 4.8V battery, you should expect maximum speed to be about 1 revolution per second.

    Use two Motor Gizmos to make your own robot!

    Options:
    Select a Yellow Wheel or Lilac Wheel

  • Fire Stick Gizmo for Playground - 8 Smart Pixels (GIZFIRE)
    Blaze Gizmo for Playground
    (Works with all types of Playgrounds)

    The Playground system is an easy way to connect from Crumble or BBC micro:bit to useful Gizmos

    The Fire Stick Gizmo provides 8 "Smart Pixels" in a line that can be used by raspberry Pi, or Crumble (as Sparkles), or by BBC micro:bit (as neopixels). Simply use one of the connection cables to connect from the Playground to the Gizmo

    This Gizmo also has an Output connector to allow you to chain it with other smart pixel Gizmos. Note that the Crumble will only support 32 pixels in total (so 4 x Fire Stick, or 4 x Blaze or some combination).

    Crumble Getting Started Guide

    The Crumble is an easy-to-use programmable controller. It can drive 2 motors forwards and backwards at variable speeds. It has 4 IO (Input/Output) pads which allow connections to switches, LDRs, low power LEDs and so on.

    Basic Connections

    The Crumble has been designed to encourage tinkering, using ‘croc leads’ for quick and simple connections. Pads allow terminal blocks to be fitted or a direct solder connection made, while the larger 4mm holes make an easy target for conductive thread and needle.

    Crumble with croc leads

    The Crumble software runs on PC, Mac and, in the near future, Linux (including the Raspberry Pi). Inspired by MIT Scratch, programs are simply built by snapping blocks together on screen. Sending a program to the Crumble is almost instant, allowing rapid experimentation.

    The Crumble can be extended with digitally controlled full-colour LED, called Sparkles. Additionally, several expansions board (Crumbs) are also in the works.

  • Sparkles Baton - A chain of 8 Sparkles for Crumble (SPRKBATON)
    Sparkle Baton
    A row of 8 full-colour LEDs (“Sparkles”), on one PCB, with croc-clip friendly connections at each end.

    The colour of each LED can be set individually by the Crumble and the “power-in” and “power-out” connections at each end mean the batons can be chained together, with up to 4 batons controlled by 1 Crumble

  • PIR Sensor Crumb Digital Input for Crumble Controller (CRPIR)
    PIR Sensor Crumb for Crumble
    (Digital Input Crumb)

    This Crumb is fully compatible with the Crumble Controller and makes it easy to use Croc Clips to show Digital (On and Off) inputs or use them to control LEDs or Motors.

    This Crumb has an infrared sensor module with high sensitivity to changes in IR levels - ie. moving people. You could easily use it for an intruder detector, or challenge the children to reach out and press a Button Crumb before the PIR Crumb detects them (they will have to move very slowly!)

    Fruit not included!

  • DC Motor Crumb Analog Output for Crumble Controller (Version 2) (CRMOT2)
    Motor Crumb for Crumble
    (Analog Output Crumb)

    This Crumb is fully compatible with the Crumble Controller and makes it easy to use Croc Clips to control the speed and direction of a small DC motor.

    This is metal gear motor (size N20) with a nominal speed at 6V of 80rpm.

    Because of the gearing, the motor turns at a speed of about 1 revolution a second, depending on the speed setting on the Crumble. This is a nice speed for little hands to work with - not too fast!

    Wheel included. Select either yellow or lilac

    NB. Version 1 of the Motor Crumb is no longer available as the motors are no longer manufactured
