Check out this thoughtful review from Best Buy Canada:
Botzees is a cool, creative way to introduce coding to your kids. Expand their STEM skills with this a robot that can be built and rebuilt into four different functional models and controlled through an app. The coding app is compatible with both iOS and Android devices and simple to use, so kids can easily program and play with their creation.
What are parents saying about Botzees? Here are some posts from real parents on social media, giving their thoughts on Botzees. Parents and kids tested and played with Botzees, now you can get the scoop on this top tech toy for kids holiday gifting.
Botzees are a fantastic STEAM toy for budding builders, artists, engineers, coders and programmers. With recognition from CES Innovation Awards, National Parenting Center, Purdue University and Parenting Product Awards (just to name a few!) this is sure to be an educational holiday toy hit!
Botzees is a augmented-reality building and coding kit by Pai Technology, intended for ages 4 and up. The set contains 130 pieces including a main control block, ultrasonic sensor block, digital servo block and a variety of building pieces as well as a USB cord and instruction manual. Use of Botzees also requires the app “Botzees AR” available on the Apple App Store or Google Play store. The player connects their mobile device to Botzees through Bluetooth, and can then interact with the robot through the app. Once in the app the child can choose one of four options: Play, Build, Code, or Control. The Play option presents users with an adventure-style series of 30 building and coding puzzles, designed to show new users how to build their first robots and teach them basic programming concepts, so they can command their Botzees bots. The Build mode uses the camera on the user’s mobile device to display building instructions on the screen in augmented reality, walking the user through the process of constructing a number of different robots. The Code mode allows the child to use drag and drop block coding to create a short sequence of actions for the robot to follow such as turning in a circle, flashing colors, or making a noise. Lastly, the Control mode lets the child drive the robot using forward/backward, turn, and speed controls, a great way to test their vehicles before they start to write code for them.
Botzees is an excellent toy for young children interested in robots, building, and coding as it is easy to use and enjoy. The building directions are very easy to follow, so even young users would have no trouble following along. Children are also able to use their imagination to design their robot however they would like encouraging creative thinking and design. The coding portion of the app is very simple to use and an excellent way for young users to grasp basic coding concepts. The control option is a fun way for children to see their robot in action while also working on spatial reasoning skills. Overall, Botzees is a fun, educational toy perfect for a child interested in robots.
“Building the robot is hands-on, there is room for creativity to make your own creation, and it is just a fun kit. I think families of young children will really enjoy this one.”
“Great for educators to have in the classroom. Students will not only enjoy, but they will learn a lot while building and interacting with Botzees.”
“Once built, using the app, it’s great that your child can control the robot and have it move around.”
“It lights up, makes noises and is overall very fun and exciting to use.”
“The app is easy to use as well.”
