This is an exciting new way to use your BBC micro:bit, without requiring crocodile clips which can be difficult for small people to use.

Also, this new approach allows the use of a single cable for most addons, instead of 3 crocodile clips

See 4tronix blog for detailed usage and programming information


  • Fittings for your micro:bit (micro:bit not included, unless selected)
  • Battery holder for 2xAA batteries permanently fitted (batteries not included)
  • Sturdy On/Off switch
  • Blue power indicator LED
  • White LEDs on all 3 inputs to show when active
  • The three Pins (Pin 0, Pin 1 and Pin 2) from the micro:bit are each brought to a new 3-pin connector as well as to a crocodile clip compatible terminal, so you can still use crocodile clips for your existing addons
  • Each new connector includes the signal as well as power and ground
  • Fast and easy to connect

Optional Extras:

  • BBC micro:bit with USB cable
  • 20cm connection cables

Gizmos - Purchase Separately (Not Included)
Note that not every Gizmo is compatible with the BBC micro:bit. Currently, only the Motor Gizmo cannot be used with micro:bit, all other Gizmos work fine.
Many Gizmos are already available and more are on the way. Each Gizmo connects directly to the Playground with usually one connection cable (Traffic Lights uses 3 cables, one for each colour). As with our Crumbs, the Gizmos are colour coded:

  • Blue - Digital Input (eg. Button)
  • Yellow - Analog Input (eg. Dial)
  • Black - Digital Output (eg. Buzzer)
  • Red - Analog Output (eg. motors)
  • White - Smart pixels ("Sparkles")
