On October 1, we hosted a group of young inventors and their parents here at littleBits HQ for a special playdate and a sneak preview of our newest kit, the Gizmos & Gadgets Kit, 2nd Edition. We wanted to highlight two important milestones: our acceptance into the Disney Accelerator program and the launch of a huge update to the ultimate invention toolbox. So we invited parenting bloggers and their kids for an afternoon of inventing!
The real joy for us was being there right in what we call “the moment.” That moment – when the invention snaps together and the Bits power up. The moment a kid’s eyes light up when they realize they made that happen. The moment of pride.
Check out some of our favorite highlights from the playdate.
