Assembled Drawdio fun pack – v1.1 in stock!

Drawpack Lrg
Drawdio is an electronic pencil that lets you make music while you draw! This fun pack has all the fun without the soldering. Essentially, its a very simple musical synthesizer that uses the conductive properties of pencil graphite to create different sounds. The result is a fun toy that lets you draw musical instruments on any piece of paper. This is the assembled version, for kits visit our kit page.

  • Runs on a single AAA battery for many hours (even ‘nearly dead’ batteries will work)
  • Use pencils, brushes, people, fabric, anything you want to make noise.
  • Ridiculously fun for all ages

The assembled Drawdio pack contains:

  • Assembled & tested Drawdio – no soldering required!
  • Large brush
  • Soft lead pencil + thumbtack
  • 2 x Alligator clips
  • 4 x Wire ties (the photo shows 2, but the kit has 4)
  • 12″ of copper tape

There’s lots more information at the Drawdio kit website Including a bunch of inspirational videos here. The Drawdio kit was designed in collaboration with Jay Silver based on his original design.

  1. Drawdio rocks! It was my daughter’s first electronics-with-soldering project:

  2. Is this version 1.2 because it is assembled or did the PCB change?

  3. jay, typo :( its been fixed!
