Make Your Toys Talk!

This month, KitHub brings mmmagic to kids across the nation! Toys will talk! Wizard wands will sparkle and fizz! (Or make pig noises—you decide.) Gramma’s rocking chair will roar like a rocket chair! All thanks to the wonder of switches and the ingenuity of kids at play. This very cool kit—designed for us by Eric Rosenbaum of MIT’s Lifelong Kindergarten—lets kids turn cardboard, foil, and tape into electrical switches, introducing them to the cause-and-effect fun of pairing simple actions with their favorite sound effects. 

Here are just a few projects you can do with this fantastical kit:

* Add sound effects to anything
* Our sound module lets you record your voice (or any sound) and add it to your project
* Build a switch to trigger the sound using cardboard, foil, and tape
* Make your own magic wand that plays a sound when you tap someone's head
* Add a "belly button" to your teddy bear that giggles when you press it 
* Make a sensor for your chair so sitting on it triggers a toot sound 
* Add crash sounds to cars, disco music to your dancing shoes, blastoff sounds to your rocket
