AdaBox 003

I decided to purchase a monthly STEM kit subscription for my son Alex to work on, Tinker Crate. , I also signed him up for a monthly cooking kit subscription, Raddish Kids. He really enjoys both subscriptions, and looks forward to them each month. The success and enjoyment of his subscriptions drove me to look into ones I could subscribe to for myself.

That’s how I came across Adafruit‘s quarterly AdaBox subscriptions. They contain curated products from Adafruit, unique collectables, and exclusive discounts. This week I received my first box 003.

I was impressed with the quality and care taken with the presentation and packaging. Inside, here’s what’s included:



  • Photo Cell
  • Diffused RG LED
  • 10k Potentiometer
  • Piezo Buzzer
  • 10K 5% 1/4W Resistors
  • 560ohm 5% 1/4W Resistors
  • Diffused 10mm Red LED
  • DIffused 10mm Green LED
  • 12mm Tactile Switches
  • SPDFT Switch


A couple of collectable’s I gave to Alex:

  • PCB Ruler
  • IoT cloud pin

That’s it! I’m looking forward to diving in

    4 weeks ago by ejstembler Loved the Croquetas De Jamon, Catracho, and Toffee Pudding! Alex loved the medium-rare Catracho tenderloin too! And Yana loved the grilled octopus with sour cabbage slaw. We met the chef afterwards. She brought us these tiny Alfajores cookies. Alex asked her what is was, she told him he'd like it. He licked a cookie suspiciously and told her, "There's something wrong with this chocolate. It's too sweet!"
