Got second-hand LittleBits last night!

Simon was up to a new challenge and spent the whole day building circuits. Even during his Chinese lesson. We managed to finish 5 projects today:

Breezy Buddy (a fan)

Bit Bot

Rotolamp (a disco lamp with a remote control to change it’s spinning speed)

Simon was doing most of the work himself (reading the instructions in English, assembling the circuits, pressing them on motherboards). The pressing bit required some help sometimes as well as securing the wires with tape. I made the paper templates, which Neva helped decorate.

She also made this cute evening video of the Rotolamp herself (she is singing a Russian lullaby, with modified lyrics):
