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
