Adafruit Gift Guide: Young Engineers

Close shot of two children side by side from just below their shoulders to just above the tops of their heads. Child on left is holding a circuit playground over  each eye with their thumb and index fingers. The back of their hands are facing the camera, covering their cheeks and mouth. Part of this child's face is obscured by the elbow of the child on the right who has their arms in the air and is dangling a circuit playground over each eye. The child's left eye is partially visible. This child is smiling.

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. Whether you're young, or young at heart, the Adafruit Young Engineers category is perfect for your all your electronics needs!
