this year's Creative Toy of the Year Award! That is not surprising since the toy was in short supply during December due to the high demand. The droid was included on TTPM’s “Most Wanted Toys Holiday 2017” list, and it also won top awards from Heather’s Pick, Toy Insider, and the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio. It was also one of the best sellers in Walmart and on Amazon. The Star Wars Droid Inventor Kit enables kids to custom their droids thanks to multiple controllers, authentic sounds, and craft materials! The droid can do anything, and the creator can control it by using an app. The possibilities are endless! This toy challenges the kids’ creativity and allows them to use their cognitive skills to solve problems and invent. LittleBits believes that playful techniques are valid educational methods. Congratulations!
