Adafruit's Circuit Playground show to teach kids about electronics with cute components

Adafruit already welcomes newcomers to do-it-yourself device culture, but it still assumes a certain amount of comfort with coding and soldering. The shop now wants to accommodate the most basic of beginners by starting a children’s web series that teaches electronics. Circuit Playground will provide activities, songs and stories that put a friendly face on engineering, in some ways very directly: many of the shows will involve big-eyed characters (and, naturally, corresponding toys) like Cappy the Capacitor. Although the series doesn’t start until March, it could be vital to a generation of kids growing up immersed in technology — and ultimately create a larger customer base for Adafruit in the process.
