    The kids are in love with Botley!

    My kids are 6 and 8, and like most kids, they’re overly attached to the electronic devices. I am always looking for toys that will engage them with a strong STEM component. They had been asking for a robot and I found this. It was more affordable than some of its competitors and I especially liked that it came with accessories you can use to build obstacles and paths. I really like that this doesn’t require a phone or tablet to work. This is a cute, little robot with a fun personality – it says “hi” as soon as you turn it on. It is brightly colored and says cute phrases. It is a great tool for teaching kids problem solving skills. The remote can be a bit of a challenge because the buttons aren’t labeled, but after a few minutes the kids had it figured out and Botley was rolling all over the house. My kids have been having a lot of fun with Botley the last few days and I’m sure he’ll see a lot more play in the coming months. This is a great STEM toy for kids 5 and up.

    Botley was a great gift for my 8 year old granddaughter. She was easily able to program it to run through a set of commands. She shared it with her 11 year old brother who was equally happy to play with it. Together they were able to program it to move through a maze and then park itself in a pre-set parking spot. Wonderful toy!

    Bought this to get my son off the tablet some. I figured something interactive was better than watching youtube videos. He loves it and plays with it several times a week. Its very easy to start out, and can get as complex as you want it to.

    This is a solid, well built robot that is designed to do one thing, teach kids how to do basic sequencing. My 6 year old enjoyed programming it a couple of times, but ultimately was disappointed that it didn't "do more."

    My daughter got this for Christmas and loves it. I don't know if it will teach coding but she is learning how to program the robot to move around the house. Keeps her busy for a few hours.

    My kid loves this, and I have found myself messing with it, he tracks lines on paper to follow, you can set up obstacles for him to do skies the limit for this thing.

    I bought Botley for my 8 year old grandson (and his Daddy) . It is right up his alley. From reading the reviews, I think it will be great Christmas present.

    This robot was not easily able to be utilized by my 5 year old. Also this was pricey.
