Learning Resources Botley the Coding Robot Activity Set is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive and easy to use! This toy is great for the creative child that is sick of building blocks or playing with dolls. Botley is like a real robot friend. I got this for my daughter who was turning 6 years old. We love how he talks, and the remote is easy to use. There is so much to do with this robot. You can make it move blocks, go through obstacle course, follow black lines (even make your own!). It's wonderful you can do simple movement and problem solve to detect objects and turn around in a circle. It does take some time to read the features with my child but she got the hang of it right away. She will be able to grow with this robot and pass it down to her younger brother. This is the future for kids and I'm glad there are STEM toys like this to teach our children.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great introduction to coding My 7 and 9yo kids love Botley. They have enjoyed making the robot move around and my 7yo son quickly discovered the "secrets" to make the robot do fun extra tasks. I can't wait to see what more they do with the robot when they have more time again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interactive and fun! My kids loved opening the box to see Botleys face. They love the little sounds Botley makes as they play. My more advanced kids caught on with how to code right away while my lower kids needed more assistance. This got my kids involved and thinking and everyone wanted a turn!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite coding product for elementary students! Having Botley the Coding Robot Activity Set in my classroom has brought coding to life for my K-5th students! The packaging for Botley was one of my favorite parts. There is a Velcro door that opens up to see Botley for the first time before you even open the box. Every time I started to "un-box" Botley for each class I teach, there were squeals of excitement to get to see him for the first time. That sneak peak into the box totally got my students engaged and excited to open the box and try coding with Botley. All of the components of the activity set were nicely organized and easy to arrange back into the box when we were done. After a quick scan of the activity guide, we were ready to start trying out all the features the Botley Activity Set had to offer. Students as young as kindergarten were able to start programming Botley right away. As a teacher who teaches from grades K-5, I really enjoy how Botley can grow and become more complex as students increase in their coding skills. He is able to be ready to go for kids who are just learning their directions and how to put coding steps into a sequence. But he is also ready to follow loops and if/then commands from students who are building more complex algorithms. I am always looking for the best products that will best serve the age range I teach, and I could not be more happy to see the versatility that Botley has to offer. I also love that this is a screen free product. Students get to see immediately the results of the coding sequence they input into the remote programmer. They can celebrate when their coding sequence accomplishes their goal or work together to problem solve and adjust in the moment as needed. So far soccer with Botley is my student's favorite coding "game" to play. Botley has quickly become the most beloved material in my STEM classroom and I can't wait to see how my student's coding skills continue to grow with this product!
