This gift is packed with value to educationally occupy and entertain your child these holidays. Even better, with your Creative Kids voucher, it doesn’t have to cost you a cent.
The bundle includes close to $160 in value, but you can purchase it with your $100 NSW Creative Kids Voucher at the checkout.
The Amazing Annoyatron
The Amazing Annoyatron is the fun way for kids to learn about electronics and coding. With 20+ cool creations they can build (and re-build) plus free add-on projects, your kids will enjoy creating new projects and pranks whilst building their STEM skills.
Your child will receive a unique invite to 4 exclusive live-streams with the creator of the Annoyatron. Michael Nixon will walk through a number of exciting inventions with the kit, provide personal help and support as well as a question and answer session at the end.
Meet the world’s coolest coding kit
Fun, educational & undeniably annoying
The premise for this kit is simple: what if learning about coding and electronics wasn’t boring? With The Amazing Annoyatron, your child’s eyes will light up as they build new inventions, tweak them, and grow their coding superpowers.
Packed with countless things to create and endless hours of fun
Over 20 unique inventions can be built and re-built with The Amazing Annoyatron. It’s a blast to assemble and test them all, and they can then be customised to make them even better (i.e., more annoying).
What you can create
The burglar alarm you don’t remember installing. The rooster you never knew you had. The chirping cricket you can never find. Plus many, many more.
Bits and pieces and so much more
There are 31 electronic parts and components included in the box. We’ve got things to make noises. Others to trigger them. And we show kids exactly how to put them all together!
What you’ll find in the box
- Code-able Brain Board
- Mini ‘buzzer’ Speaker
- Distance/Motion Sensor
+ even more!
Fosters STEM skills critical for tomorrow’s jobs
Coding is all about logic, knowing which order things should happen in. You can’t whisk an egg before you crack it – code has similar patterns.
Our kit encourages kids to experiment and make each invention their own. We show them what different bits of code do and how to change them up.
There are endless ways to use The Amazing Annoyatron. Kids will get inventive disguising their creations and pranking friends and family.
With tech, things don’t always go to plan. Coding errors can yield hilarious, unexpected results but are also powerful learning opportunities.

The Amazing Annoyatron has been featured in countless shows, magazines and publications, in addition to winning multiple awards.

Frequently asked questions
When we named this product, we knew there’d be questions. Here are some of the most common ones we’re asked by customers.
The Amazing Annoyatron is best for children aged 9 or above. The inventions require your child to be able to read and write in order to follow along. It’s still a fun activity for younger children, especially if they’re tech-savvy, just expect to help with most of the steps.
We generally get this question from engineers and people with past coding experience. Our activities work with C++, but don’t worry – kids aren’t writing entire programs from scratch. We supply ‘starting code’, then guide users through changing different parts and parameters.
No. Inventions are powered by your computer, so no batteries are needed. If you want to use inventions untethered, you can purchase and use a 9V battery with the supplied clip. A USB power bank also works.
With the kit, there are a few inventions which can make reasonably-loud noises, the ‘Burglar Alarm’ being one example. However, we have instructions on how to fix the volume if that’s a problem. The noise is pretty harmless, and most of the inventions are annoying but quiet.
Yes, even though it sounds like some marketing ploy. The entire product – including packaging, graphics, instructions and video – were created by EduKits’ founder when he was just fourteen years old. If you’re interested, you can read more about his story.
