Very Impressed with this product
Bought it a few days ago as a gift for my nephew, after one of the Sales Reps at the local Marbles store provided a cool quick demo.
There was another customer who suggested that a kid will like it for an hour; but that a tetris like game puzzle will keep them entertained for a long time.. (which may be true, to the credit of the puzzle game..)
So I had seeded in my mind a little bit of doubt that my 9 year old nephew would like it for longer than 1 hour, considering that kids nowadays seem to have so many options, and short attention spans from excessive options.
Well I was very happy that after he played it with multiple times throughout the evening, he expressed that he “loved it, soo cool!”; with the color changing LEDs (“Make it red, like Anger from Inside Out!...”, to tight controls, cool new unique physical design that popular culture hasn’t seen much of yet (until upcoming star wars..), fast speed, app controlled, and even the quick to learn entry level script programming which I hope will drive his interest in science and engineering; have to say it’s a great product and purchase for him!
He nicknamed it R2D2.
The Future is Now!!
Great Jump Start Into Robotics!
