Please take a moment to ask yourself honestly if you:

  • have a baby

  • are planning on having a baby

  • are interested in computer engineering

  • will be attending a baby shower in the next 1-6 months

  • have a friend that looks like they might have a baby

  • are planning to be interested in computer engineering

  • know a computer engineer that acts like a baby

  • skipped the first two days of CE150

  • are learning how to read

If you fall into any of these categories, then you should definitely get a few of these.

When my oldest was a year old, he would demand that I hold him in the air so he could flip the light switches. Each time he flipped the switch, he would jerk his head around to check the room and confirm that the lights had successfully toggled. He would have done it for hours if my arms had the strength.

This book is inspired by my sons' curiosity, and a hope that I might be able fuel that curiosity, and keep them entertained without having to suspend them in the air to toggle light switches.

Frequently Asked questions

If you're in the US, then yes. Books have arrived, and I am working through the backlog and shipping them out as quick as I can.

If you're in Europe, then yes. Books are scheduled to land in the Netherlands first week of December, and will be shipped quickly after.

If you're anywhere else in the world, then probably. Orders around the world just seem to take a long time to get to their destination, so I am hesitant to promise anything.

Yes. The book takes a CR2032 battery that is secured with a screw. And the battery should last 5-10 years.

If you can't get the AND page to light up. Try pressing both buttons at the same time.

If two of the internal pages are acting the same, then the most likely cause is that one of the holes didn't get punched out all the way. In which case you should be able to just punch it out with a pencil or something.

Otherwise, reach out to me via email or through the contact-us page and I'll get you squared away with a replacement.

It was a long wait, but it was well worth it.

I ordered right after the Kickstarter finished - so it took a while for the books to get into my hands, but it's been well designed and well thought out. The only downside to the clever way the pages are designed is that it doesn't work as well in the dark! (e.g when my little one wants to read 1000 books before bed)

I think it's a fabulous idea, and I'm planning on donating my spare book to my local library.
I'm sure this process was murder to go through to get books into our hands, and I'm so grateful you guys persevered!

Great beginner book

This is a very well put together book. It’s basic enough to understand…. Which is exactly the point. It will definitely be a favorite with the buttons leading to cause& effect discovery

What a beautiful project

Thank you for creating such a beautiful item. I know how hard it is to go from idea to product and I really appreciate you did not give up along the way. Well done.


Received today 1 month after dispatch and happily without customs. Beautiful! I regret not having purchased at least one more in the same order for when some of my friends have babies.

I'm looking forward for my 2 years old baby to come from kindergarten and read the book with him.

Love it

My husband and I are nerds who studied electronic engineering so this book is really for the whole family haha. Our son loves it so far and we are so geeked out about it. Thank you!
