Now with coding! Kids can now create their own Droid and bring it to life using littleBits electronic blocks! With the free Droid Inventor app, kids can control their Droid, give it new abilities with easy block-based coding, and take it on 22+ missions.
From the Manufacturer
The Droid becomes a loyal sidekick kids can customize and make their own. It comes with stickers, and ideas for household items that help the Droid take shape.
With littleBits, kids get creative as they engineer new Droids. They can reconfigure their Droid in new ways to give it additional abilities or make it perform new tasks with in-app controls or coding.
With just the wave of a hand, kids can guide their Droid like they’re using the Force.
Droid-driving is easy with in-app controllers including a joystick, sliders, and tilt mode
The Droid can detect obstacles in front of it and change course like it has a mind of its own.
Kids can learn (or level-up!) their computer science skills with 6+ new missions. They’ll use easy block-based coding to perform activities like escaping the rebel base or changing their Droid’s personality.
Describe your products in 3 words.
Simple. Playful. Powerful.
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
It's the result of months of brainstorming with Disney and Lucasfilm. Our mutual goal was to get all kids, especially girls, involved in STEM/STEAM. Everyone loves Star Wars - it was a no-brainer.
What makes your product special?
This isn’t a pre-made toy. Kids use their brains and their hands to create their own Droid from scratch. They form an emotional bond - I’ve never seen so many kids hug a littleBits invention before.
What has been the best part of your experience?
We worked with the best storytellers in the world at Disney. They believe in our mission, and we’re part of a movement getting kids to use their imaginations and invent the world they want to live in.

A little bit about my son - He is part builder, part basher. Has enjoyed lego kits, but also enjoys playing call of duty with me, and shooting darts at his sister with his Nerf Gun. He is 11 years old, and shares an iPad 2 hand me down with his sister who is 8.
Now about the kit:
- The package is awesome, looks super premium and worth far more than $100
- The SW music in the app is so cool, we had goosebumps
- The app looks authentically Star Wars, and the instructions are 3D videos as opposed to old lego instruction booklets that I’m used to
- The R2 D2 takes about an hour to make, and we did it as a family which was really fun.
- We made some mistakes, and it was interesting seeing how my son and daughter came up with solutions to those mistakes
- They were really proud once they had built the whole thing, and strangely started asking me questions about the drivetrain in my car, and how that relates to what they just built.
- After you make the R2D2, there are “missions” that teach you how to break it down, build something different, leverage different sensors to make his head turn, force drive, fist bump, drawing etc that was super cool
- The customization element was heaps of fun, we got a white sticker sheet that allowed us redesign our droid, once we had finished with the blue sticker version.
- I would love to buy additional sensors, but Amazon doesn’t seem to sell them, and the app doesn’t appear to support it.
- The stickers are a little difficult to put on
- I would love more missions? Little Bits?
- R2 D2 doesn’t travel that well so make sure you buy a carry case, or disassemble him if you go anywhere
This kit has the kind of value or longevity as a $400 lego kit, but with so much more. I was genuinely impressed with how my kids were applying the things they learned in the build experience, to everyday things, all while having so much fun. They were explaining how a light switch, bluetooth, dc motor etc work in cars, houses and other items. My only regret is that there aren’t additional add ons or complete kits for us to purchase to keep their curiosity going. This product will sell out this year, I’d be snapping one up before it does.
The assembly of the droid is great and I enjoyed watching them use their problem solving skills to put it together. Unfortunately, once it's assembled there's a limited amount of things you can actually do with the droid. The app, which we used on both iOS and Android is pretty limited and could use some work. There is no function for custom coding this droid and we found that once assembled, our kid's interest in the toy really went by the wayside.
Great idea, but I'd like to see littleBits take this to the next level, and do some more work on the app.
