Review Highlights:

Botley teaches basic coding (sequence and loops) and logic through play. The lovable robot develops creativity, sequential and conditional reasoning, patience, perseverance (grit), visual-spatial processing, logical thinking skills, problem-solving, deductive reasoning, and so much more.

Botley introduces children to computer and robotic programming at an early age, giving an academic edge over peers. The toy does not require an app or smart phone, which is refreshing and makes it so much more accessible and kid-friendly. All the coding is done via a durable remote control with only nine buttons. Simply key in the sequence of events (directional arrows) and then press the big green button to watch Botley go. Obstacles also come with the toy that encourage more advanced play as Botley can be programmed to handle conditional scenarios based on whether it detects an object or not.

The instructions are a quick read and easy to understand. Botley has already provided days of play-based learning in our household and we are excited to delve deeper into the robot's hidden features. Learning Resources even provides additional classroom activities for Botley on their website such as teaching Botley to draw a shape, deliver the mail, and even add and subtract.

We loved that there was no screen or smart phone involved while learning basic logic. We loved how engaging this little robot can be! Botley has become a part of the family.
