The Makey Makey-Compatible Starter Kit has all the bits and pieces you need to kick-start your projects. If you are new to Makey Makey then perhaps check out our tutorials, we have some great tips for beginners and advanced users.

This kit includes:

  • 1x Makey Makey-Compatible Board (any "Makey Makey" type boards at this price point, anywhere on the internet, are just compatible boards based on the open source design. If you want an official Makey Makey, we have those as well - buying official goes a long way to support the team behind the origin idea)
  • 1x USB cable
  • 10x Aligator clip leads (allows you to connect to almost anything!)
  • 10x Pre terminated male-to-male wires (handy for connecting your Makey Makey to shields or electronics)

Need lots of gear? Checkout our Educators Pack - a bulk collection of parts to suit classrooms and workshops.


Note - the board in this kit is a derivative of the open hardware product "MaKey MaKey" and is not the official version. The official MaKey MaKey is a collaboration with Jay Silver and Eric Rosenbaum). We also sell Sparkfun-made MaKey MaKey kits which support the team behind the official MaKey MaKey and their future innovations. Makey Makey is a registered trademark of JoyLabz LLC.

Customer Reviews

  1. Review by Paul verified purchaser

    Great service - sent same day. Works just like MakeyMakey should. Simple and easy. (Posted on 15/06/2017)

  2. Review by Louise verified purchaser

    Has everything you or your junior scientists needs to get creating. Linked directly with the MakeyMakey website and works very well with Scratch. Ships quickly. (Posted on 30/03/2017)

  3. Review by Alicia - Makey Makey verified purchaser

    This seems to be the same kit as the original Makey Makey however it doesn't have either a package label or an instruction booklet. This would have been helpful, especially as it was given as a gift. There's no direction to a website for instruction either. All of which would have been helpful. (Posted on 28/12/2016)

  4. Review by Cameron verified purchaser

    Excellent little kit for beginners, plugs straight into any computer and many creative projects you can do. Only minor downside is the plastic covers on the alligator clips are too slippery. I just pull them back. (Posted on 19/12/2016)

  5. Review by Karen verified purchaser

    Starter kit was exactly as expected. Great product and cheaper than other places. (Posted on 5/12/2016)
