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

The book takes a coincell (CR2032) battery that is secured with a screw. The battery should last 5-10 years. To remove it, you can undo the flap in the back, remove the safety screw, and then slide the battery out with a plastic tool or if you have really grippy fingers.

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.

Issue with Stuck Button

I LOVE this book, but unfortunately the red reset button gets stuck and then the book does not work properly. I have to be very careful on closing the book in a certain way as to not get it stuck. I do get it to work occasionally. Would've been a perfect rating otherwise.

Wonderful book!

Our 15 month loves this book! It has been so fun to watch her learn to use the buttons and learn how the buttons work differently. This book is very creative and designed really well!

Savannah Tedesco

My 17 month old son absolutely loves the book! It is great quality and is just as cool as I expected it to be. Customer service also rocks. Thanks!

Engineer-parents will love it!

As a Google engineer, I love that this book gives me a chance to share my excitement for technology with my toddler.

Great and simple

A half dozen pages or so with simple concepts and fun buttons and a light for kiddos to learn basic computer engineering.
