Links Unlimited Adds littleBits to Product Line

Links Unlimited has announced it is the first company to bring the littleBits product line to the corporate market for gifts, incentives and rewards & recognition. littleBits is a fast-growing New York-based education startup that has created a line of electronic building blocks that use magnetic “bits” that snap together to turn “ideas into inventions, transforming the way kits learn so they can grow up to be tomorrow’s changemakers, no matter their age, gender, race, nationality or ability,” according to a littleBits company statement, which adds that up to 40% of the children using its products are girls, much more than the national average for technology-oriented toys.
Since its launch in 2011, the company says it has won more than 150 awards in tech, education, and toys, including The Toy Association’s 2018 Creative Toy of the Year, EdTech’s Cool Tool in 2018, CNN’s “Top 10 Startups to Watch,” and one of CNBC’s “Next List.” Over the past six years it has reportedly sold millions of kits in over 70 countries and is partnering with industry giants, including Lucasfilm, Pearson and the New York Department of Education, as well as being part of a Disney accelerator. The magnetic “bits” snap together with magnets, work with all other “bits” across different kits and are color coded to indicate its function—power, input, output, wire, etc.—in whatever circuit or device the child creates. There are kits designed for space buffs, music lovers, budding coders, fun-loving, family-oriented kids and Disney fans.
