There's no better way to get your kid started with electronics than the Adafruit Young Engineers category. These kits, packs, and toys all offer introductions into the world of electronics for aspiring engineers.
Check out our complete line of Circuit Playground Plushies based on our popular YouTube series that's designed to get your kid telling you what a capacitor does instead of asking. Or check out our line of GoldieBlox - one of the best ways to encourage girls to explore STEM fields.
A number of Adafruit's beginner kits are also perfect for engineers of all ages. We carry kits like the Drawdio - which turns your pencil into a theremin through conductive tape - and the ever-popular ARDx that, with your help, can get anyone programming Arduinos at a very young age. Whether you're young, or young at heart, the Adafruit Young Engineers category is perfect for your all your electronics needs!
