Great robot and program logic,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: LEGO Mindstorms NXT (Toy)
This is my first robot set so I really have nothing to compare it to.
Navigating the NXT is simple. You can program straight from the NXT or download files you build with the computer software. The sensors work as advertised. The programming logic blocks are simple to use and allow for advanced programming. Editing and saving files is easy so you do not have to continuously connect to the computer. Bluetooth people should be especially happy.
I decided to start easy with Spike. The kids, age 5 and 6, love to help build and play with the robots.
The instructions for building and programming the robots pictured on the box are in the software that you load form the cd.
- Good quality
- Easy to use but can make complex functions
- data cables can be a pain to manage
- need to get a way to organize the pieces such as a tackle box
I highly recommend this set. Probably best for 12+ age group.
Note: the books for NXT are not out until December/January. The ones available are for the older set. Also, you need 6 AAs.

Best way to organize Legos: Stanley Pro Organizer. They have removable compartments that are PERFECT. They are unfortunately hard to find, but Wal-Mart and Target have been carrying them.
