Rating:                 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Recommended age: 5 year-old ++

Who would love this: Anyone who loves smart things! 

Meet Botley the Coding Robot from Learning Resources . At the time of this review, there is already a Botley 2.0 in the market with enhanced features, but today, we are going to talk about this original and first version of Botley. 

Why I love ❤️ this: 

(1) Coding in a Screen-Free Way. We don’t need an iPad or tablet, or any downloaded app. All we need is to key in the instructions using the remote programmer comes with the set. I like that the instructions booklet is easy to follow. Even my four-year-old can understand the steps and functions of each buttons quite easily. 

(2) Smart Robots: This is a smart robot with many obvious and hidden talents: it can follow the pre-programmed directions, detect and follow a black line, avoid an object when pre-programmed to do so, push things around using detachable arms, spin and turn around, and say “hi”. The robot is cute to look at, and keeps the kid entertained and occupied for a very long time. 

Where to buy this: 

The Creative Toy Store (Australia)
