About Makey Makey: An Invention Kit for Everyone! Have you ever played Mario on Play-Doh or Piano on Bananas? Alligator clip the Internet to Your World, and start inventing The Future.
Life of a Southern Mom had the opportunity to work with Makey Makey. I have a daughter who is too smart for her own good. She is only six years old and knows how things work better than most adults. I knew that when I had the chance to work with Makey Makey that it would be the perfect thing for her. The kit we received was the Makey Makey Classic. Now this kit contains everything you could possibly want to make. It does recommend for ages 8+, but my 6-year-old really loved it. I would suggest watching younger kids because the parts are small and, well, you are dealing with electricity so please monitor your child while they are inventing.
Let me tell you more about this kit. You start out by simply making a piano out of bananas. Then you start going into more advanced things to make, like game controllers, musical instruments and more! This is the ultimate kit for anyone big or small, boy or girl. From what I have so far noticed of this kit, the banana experiment is pretty easy and they slowly advance to being harder. I wouldn’t recommend this being for kids younger than 6. In the box you will receive the following: Makey Makey Board, USB Cable, 7 Alligator Clips, 6 Connector Wires, Instructions with Visual Project Start Guide, Online Documentation, and 20 Color Stickers. All of this can be used again and again and there are endless possibilities for how many things you and your child can create together.
If you would like to purchase, head on over here. For only $44.95, this box makes a fantastic gift.
