Ozobot : Robot for Kids
My son is 6 years old and loves anything that has to do with science and technology, so he was really excited to be able to review Ozobot. He loved how small it was, and that he could start playing with it the second he got it out of the box. Everything is included in the starter pack to get your child color coding right away. It is easy to get going, just press the button on the side, and your Ozobot is ready to go.
Learning how to control Ozobot was easy. We used the activity pages and markers included in the starter pack, but you can also use regular paper and red, green, blue, and black markers. With the help of the quick start instruction booklet he was able to draw some codes and watch his Ozobot move based on the code he drew. He had lots of fun creating the codes and seeing how the robot responded. Watch our video below!
The Ozobot is appropriate for his age and a toy that he can grow with as he learns more about coding and by using Ozobots apps and web-based games. The possibilities are endless.
Playing with Ozobot allows children as young as 6 to make independent decisions via random logic, get visual feedback with multicolor LED lighting and “dress” their robot with various protective skins. It’s intelligent gameplay, the type of toy that will benefit children with cutting-edge skills. There are so many ways to expand your horizons with Ozobot.
The Ozobot is a perfect holiday gift because it is educational and fun! This robot promotes social interaction, computational thinking and confidence building through play and interactive games. I know we cannot wait to create more code for ours!
The Ozobot is available at Barnes & Noble and Toys R Us.
