If you’re looking for a great STEM toy that makes coding easy for kids of all ages you need to know about Elecrow Crowbits. Easy to use, versatile and affordable it’s everything we love in a STEM toy!
What is Crowbits?
Crowbits, created by the open source company Elecrow, is a new and innovative STEM toy that teaches kids coding. These magnetic and programmable LEGO compatible electronic blocks are designed to teach kids aged 3-14 coding and engineering skills in a fun way.
My son loves coding and programing and he really enjoyed the Crowbits design and how it works. It was fun to play with it and create different things and the best part, of coarse was that he was able to program them all by himself.
5 Reasons Why Crowbits is A Fantastic Toy For Kids To Learn Coding
I’m always looking for toys that will teach my kids about coding and STEM in a fun and easy way. That is why I’m so excited about the new Crowbits from Eletcrow. There are a few things that make the Elecrow Crowbits really stand out from other STEM toys out there. Here are some of the key features:
These magnetic, programmable, electronic blocks have a unique design that makes it so easy to snap them together. They are also LEGO compatible, which is a huge plus as this extends the ways in which kids can play and build with Crowbits.

Crowbits are packaged in a series of kits. From a basic kit which is ready to play right out of the box and is ideal for preschoolers and kids with no coding experience to the more advanced kits that are perfect for kids who already have some coding experience there is something for every age and every level.

Lets kids learn coding in a fun and easy way
I also love that even if you have kids of different ages or that are at different coding levels Crowbits is fun for everyone.
Crowbits uses its own kid-friendly visual programming software called Letscode which is based on Scratch coding language. You just drag and drop the block-based coding which makes it so easy to learn coding. Crowbits also supports multiple open-source platforms
Encourages creativity and thinking outside the box
Because there are endless possibilities in terms of how many projects kids can build, Crowbits is a toy your kids will not get bored with and that can grow with your kids.
Beyond the 80 programmable electronic modules kids can also use Crowbits along with LEGOs, cardboard and other materials you have at home to create endless projects. I love toys that let kids use their imagination and creativity to create and think outside the box. Crowbits really fosters creativity by being so versatile!
