Learning Resources Botley the Coding Robot Activity Set is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 227.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Won't buy again I used Botley in my class with 8yr old learners for team work and problem solving. They love it and so do I. The problem I have is that Botley does not turn 90 degrees. He turns at 87-88 which makes it difficult to complete a maze as he does not run in straight lines after turning.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as advertised This toy is fun just be aware it states to accept 80 commands we couldn't get ours to accept more than 40 we tried multiple times. I tasked my child with a simple task of going around an object and then back around backwards. This would minimally take 36 steps they couldn't do it so I said let me see if I can. Since I thought it was a little more steps than the minimal I programmed it with 45 commands to take it safe and not run into the object. It kept saying it had reached the end or too many commands. I am guessing they have it with two memory modules 40 commands each and you can only hit the second register with a repeat command which isn't 80 commands that is still only 40 with an option to run it again. This should be stated as I was thinking 80 commands could lead to some challenges but 40 really limits the replayability.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from One wheel won't turn. I ordered this set for my kindergarten class and after only a few uses one of the wheels will not turn. The wheel gets stuck on that one side and then Botley can't move. Fun while it lasted, but for the price it was very poor quality not to last longer than a few days. Very disappointed in this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Will not stop BEEPING!! Poor product. Poor unclear instructions on use and remote beeps whenever we try to play with it. We have to take the batteries out to get it to stop!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wish Botley existed when I was growing up So, I bought this for my 2 year old daughter who is already showing an interest in "tinkering" with things. She watches me change batteries in her toys and takes my screwdrivers and imitates what I do. So, Botley struck me as a no brainer. When I took it out of the box, it was everything I expected it to be. The directions were clear and concise. I learned how to use it quickly and showed my daughter how to use the direction arrows and to transmit the program. At this point she is not sending Botley through any obstacle courses (obviously) but she does like to randomize the direction buttons she presses and then watch the results. I have no doubt this will serve me well for many years to come. Especially since I enjoy playing with it too haha

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for problem solving! My 6 year-old son enjoyed learning how to use this right away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My son loves Botley My son loves this set! He is learning so much, so quickly about how to break down steps and logically plan out (code) Botley's actions. This was one of the most liked gifts I've ever given him.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 year old loved it Purchased for my 5 year olds bday. He loved it and so did my almost 7 year old son. It does take some adult time to read the instructions so be prepared to spend some time teaching, but overall a nice learning toy.
