If you are outside of the U.S., check out the list of official resellers from KittenBot (manufacturer of Meowbit):

As @frank_schmidt mentions in several other posts, eBay can be your friend, too, if you’re so inclined. :slight_smile: I’m looking forward to picking one up soon! Thanks for letting us know about this excellent little device, Frank!

We bought 35 of them for our school through their taobao store. It’s a little cheaper but they may not ship internationally from there.

Assuming that some people here may have Micro:bit , the original BBC MakeCode device, you may be interested in a new 5x5 LED display called ColorBit by an individual who goes by the English name of Jumping Yang and I think lives in Shenzhen , China. This matrix uses his MakeCode extension and I have demonstrated its full color output on Adafruit Discord “education” forum. It is really quite impressive. Also, I show it on my MakeCode and Hardware channel on Youtube. I think this can be purchased in China but he is not really in business. I have several of these 5x5 Neopixel displays and would like to distribute them to friends of MakeCode with Microbits and who would do some kind of YouTube video review (like, just short, a minute or so) to help inform others about this. I give them away and I pay shipping to you. When the public shows a desire for it, he may start selling to us. He has several other MakeCode pieces of hardware in the works.
