The Circuit Stickers Starter Kit from Chibitronics is an interactive kit designed to introduce you to the world of paper circuits. Inside each Circuit Stickers Starter Kit is everything you need to set up simple LEDs, Switches, and Sensors with only a bit of knowledge on how electricity works and a little ingenuity! With this starter kit no soldering or sewing is required, simply peel each LED sticker and place them in specific areas designated in the included guide sketchbook and watch your creation glow.
Included in each kit are 30 individual LED stickers (12 white, 6 each of red, yellow, and blue), a 5 meter roll of copper tape to run conductive lines to your LEDs, two CR2032 coin cell batteries to power your circuit, two small binder clips for holding your battery in place, a swatch of conductive plastic to help create a simple sensor, a small piece of Z-conductive tape to help keep pieces in place without losing electrical connectivity, and finally a Circuit Sticker Sketchbook to provide you with an introductory guide to using circuit stickers.
Chibitronics has done an amazing job of amassing their knowledge base, as well. In the Documents section below is a link to their educational Learn page which is filled with step-by-step tutorials, instructional videos, beginning and advanced projects, and more!
Note: Due to the requirements of shipping the batteries included in this kit, orders may take longer to process and therefore do not qualify for same-day shipping. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.
Skill Level: Rookie - You may be required to know a bit more about the component, such as orientation, or how to hook it up, in addition to power requirements. You will need to understand polarized components.

I've been following the exercises in the book along with my 6 year old son, and he loves it. He needs my help to stick on the copper "wire" (which can be hard even for adults - with small fingers at that), but for the most part he can compose working circuits all by himself.
In kindergarten, he has weekly book reports where he has to list the author, favorite character (he chose the LED), and a drawing depicting the story. He was able to turn in a book report with a working circuit. +1
