Bunny Bright

Bunny Bright

The Bunny Bright electronics kit for children from the age of 5 and up is designed to teach basic electrical knowledge. Following the instructions of an adult, the children soldered the LED, a reed switch, a resistor and a battery holder onto a circuit board. After completing the board, the switch could be activated by a magnet, and the LED lights up. The circuit board was sewn into a stuffed animal; in the case of our project this was a stuffed rabbit containing the board with a carrot housing the magnet. When the carrot was touched to the rabbit’s mouth, its belly lit up to show it was happy.
