Break Free is a new, suspense game from Yulu, part of a whole new line of games called Spy Code.

LittleBits Inc.

Ages 8+


This kit comes with everything you need to start creating your own Star Wars droid from the ground up. From the moment you take the kit out off the box and download the free Droid Inventor companion app (available for iOS and Android devices), kids are immediately learning the fundamentals of circuitry building as they piece together the brain of your droid. Kids start with the basics, learning, as with any LittleBits kit, the tools of the trade, from how to connect the battery, power on your circuit and the function of each bit. There are many missions and new powers to tackle once your Droid is built. Then you can rebuild and reconfigure your droid to test new powers. The opportunities for play are endless.
