My preschool son loved this robot! It took a while to unpack and identify all that was in the box and get everything started, but once the maps were out, it was great! My son enjoyed the music map the most and explored that for over 20 minutes! He is an active 5 year old, so this is amazing! The process, once he got used to it, was simple. Plan the robots path, press the buttons to enter the commands then start the robot on it’s path.
As an educator, i’d recommend this robot to preschool aged children for an early introduction to coding. This toy emphasizes early thinking and problem solving skills, sequencing, and a hands on approach to learning.
We liked the colors and and the maps. We liked watching it move the way we programmed it.
Children learn the basics of computational thinking while practicing visual-spatial skills, directionality, sequential reasoning, pattern recognition, patience, perseverance, deductive reasoning, logical thinking skills, and problem-solving.
