The PicoCricket Kit has been discontinued. We apologize for any inconvenience.
A PicoCricket is a tiny computer that can make things spin,
light up, and play music.
You can plug lights, motors, sensors,
and other devices into a PicoCricket, then program them
to react, interact, and communicate. Meet the PicoCricket.
For example, you can make a cat and program
it to purr when someone pets it. Or you can make a birthday
cake and program it to play a song when someone blows out
the candles. See the PicoCricket in action.
The PicoCricket Kit is similar
to the LEGO® MINDSTORMS™ robotics kits. MINDSTORMS
is designed especially for making robots, while the PicoCricket
Kit is designed for making artistic creations with lights,
sound, music, and motion. Who's using the PicoCricket?
“The PicoCricket captures the LEGO spirit: it sparks the imagination, stimulates creative thinking, and engages children in playful learning.”
–Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen, Owner and
Vice Chairman of The LEGO Company
