Itty Bitty Buggy is Microduino’s newest STEM educational toy that has endless design possibilities and exciting configurations.

The Itty Bitty Buggy kit comes with a base Buggy plus four opportunities to build a sloth, a ladybug, a dodo bird and an alien. 

Want to modify one of the projects or create your own? Perfect! Itty Bitty Buggy is programmable in Scratch, Python or Arduino.

Each project is controllable over Bluetooth with our app (Android / iOS).

How does Itty Bitty Buggy work?

Itty Bitty Buggy is fun to build! The programming is easy to understand so even beginners and those new to the maker

world can create their very own Itty Bitty Buggy.

With programming instructions included, creating an Itty Bitty Buggy teaches kids the logic behind the function while

they are building and playing. The end result is two-fold: 

  • Learn how to build a versatile, exciting toy that can perform many functions.
  • Use and apply logic, and problem solving.

The programming skills they learn are mDesigner (based on Scratch), Python, and Arduino (C++).

Itty Bitty Buggy is truly an educational toy that lowers the barriers to STEM education.

Hardware
 
Features mCookie Series modules

Itty Bitty Buggy hardware is based on the Microduino’s mCookie series. Learn more about the mCookie series here.

Programming
 
Supports Scratch, Python, and C/C++ (Arduino). Buggy helps cultivate interest and logical thinking of programming,
and provide more opportunity for kids to learn and practice programming.
Drag and drop coding with mDesigner

mCookie series stackable modules can be programmed using drag-and-drop coding using mDesigner.

mDesigner is based on MIT’s Scratch 3.

Users will be immediately familiar with the standard Scratch interface, but with added support to control and

interact with our mCookie modules. This method is great for beginners learning to code.

Microduino uses Scratch 3.0
Python coding with mDesigner

mDesigner also provides the option of programming with Python.

Text based coding with Arduino IDE

mCookie series modules can be programmed in the traditional text based coding using the Arduino IDE

with added Microduino support. This method allows the user to access the full potential of the modules.

 

Projects

Buggy

A mobile vehicle controllable over Bluetooth with the smartphone app. The Buggy has 3 different modes: 

  • Remote control mode – manually control Buggy from the app.
  • Line following mode – Buggy automatically follows along a black line. Use the included map or draw your own!
  • Music mode – Buggy detects colors along it’s path and plays different notes accordingly.
Sloth

Sloth is the climbing form of Itty Bitty Buggy. It is capable of traversing objects such as shower curtain rods or

even a length of string.

Lady Bug

This Itty Bitty Buggy form is capable of walking and resembles a lady bug. It shares a common ability with

Buggy in that it can follow lines from the track we provide, or draw your own.  As with all the other projects,

Itty Bitty Buggy is controllable with the app.

Dodo Bird

An interesting curiosity — the Dodo bird is a flightless bird which has gone extinct. Re-animate the Dodo

with this form of Itty Bitty Buggy and watch its hilarious wing flapping motions!

Alien

It is unknown whether or not extraterrestrial aliens truly exist. But with this form, Itty Bitty Buggy takes on the

appearance of a bipedal alien. Don’t be afraid as you are in control of the Alien with your smartphone/tablet app!
