The robot hat comes un-decorated, but with all the sticker to decorate and googly eyes. I thought that was a fun extra activity! My kids loved it. The hat is adjustable for all head sizes.
The mat is simple, but sturdy. It is a little slippery, though, which they do state in the instructions. We had it on our dining room floor, but will probably do it on the carpet next time. Instructions are super simple and easy to follow. You have a set of "level" cards, that each time a player is up, you follow for that turn's set up. So whatever that card says you place particular tiles down, like the stop and star tiles, in the particular spaces. There are other tiles that you place like, circuit boards and such, that are spaces you cannot go. So you have to get from start to stop without touching those "forbidden" spaces. So you lay down arrow tiles as you go to get to your stop space. So, you have to problem solve to get from start to stop and which way the arrows need to point.
My kids loved it and it was fun and simple! We didn't use the timer, but I think it might add to the excitement to "beat the clock!" It's a great concept for a game and I love how visual and hands on it is. And it's cute and fun!
First, there is a crown to decorate as a robot while parent reads the instructions.
Then you place the mat on the floor, set up green, red, orange and purple cards according to the task cad, give the kid a stack of big arrow cards, and have him go from green card to the red card, going around orange obstacle cards and stepping on the robot cards. To go they have to lay the arrow cards pointing in the direction they need to go next. It is pretty simple. They also included timer so if more then one kids are playing, they can see how much time they needed to finish the path, since they cannot play at the same time. Timer can count up and down and it beeps when the time is up.
The game is not actually teaches coding per se, but it is makes kids aware of sequencing, and following directions if they choose to repeat the path, and to problem solve.
To succeed, they must be able to figure out a solution in the correct order. If they make a mistake, they have to start over. Very simple, but also effective at teaching this basic coding concept.
The challenges are best completed in order as the complexity of the challenges builds on the previous challenge.
I like that there is plenty of walking, bending, picking things up, setting things down, balancing, spatial reasoning, etc. And the best part is they actually ask to play this game so it is a hit.
Thanks for reading. I hope this review is helpful!
