> Super kid friendly. I would say they aimed it at a large age range and anyone can use it (even adults!), but it would be most appealing to ages 9-15 or so. My niece (5) was way too young to think about being interested, and my nephew was a good age for it. He's a serious gamer and this is different than his norm, but he also didn't think he was too cool to do it. He had interest and enjoys it.
> it's easy. The first steps are in a super easy to read/follow manual, just telling you to put the sensor together (there are only a few steps). After the sensor is put together, you install the app and begin the "coding" portion, in something that looks like a game. They give you different options on the "coding". So as a beginner, there's a graphic user interface (canvas) option that is fun, and you basically just drag and drop blocks that have commands on them that you can edit (for example - your building a light saber, so your choosing the color, etc) then you use the sensor to move your hand up and down to choose the size of the saber.. things like that. As your dragging blocks and making changes - it shows the changes your making, so that kids make the connection that they're editing things.
- Once you have surpassed this level and feel like your ready to move onto different and more challenging things, you can actually look at the java script behind what you built.
> Variety of things to do - There are "Adventure packs" and "coding challenges" and the company is releasing more all the time, so it should not get boring any time soon. Your doing things like, flying x wings, fighting storm troopers etc.
> Definitely Rated G - safe for all ages.
> Build Self confidence - Another great point: it's hard to fail at this. I can totally see it building self confidence for anyone who may need that. There are different levels of difficulty and anyone can open this up, built the sensor and successfully start interacting with the sensor to program it. This would definitely give a sense of accomplishment for some people, and they can continue on to learn harder things - or stick with the basic programming and get through all of the levels that way. It would indeed make a great gift. Having played it over the last couple of weeks - I would definitely be happy to get this for anyone between 9-15 who would be interested in anything like this. If your kid likes building things - it would especially appeal to them, but I can also see it appealing to kids outside of that traditional group too. I think if my niece were a few years older, she could have gotten into it, and they did a good job with the profiles - you build an avatar of yourself and there are many options.
1.) The app only works on a limited number of systems not including Samsung tablet. Annoying.
2.) It starts out fun and user friendly. However, joy and empowerment for your young coder quickly turns to intense frustration because the app FREEZES AND CRASHES CONSTANTLY throughout the game.
3.) The app keeps reporting that it is not connected to the PCB (hand controller disk) even though the iPad Bluetooth says it is connected.
In an hour of attempted play I was forced to restart the app at least 40 times. Certain tasks were impossible to move through due to permanent points of Freeze. The app code needs serious work.
The physical coding kit is great. It’s well packaged and easy enough for my 7 yr old to set up. She really loved this gift initially. For the physical kit I give it 4 stars. One small note is that once built the PCB turns itself on in the foam packaging because the power button is really sensitive. It will drain the battery when in storage which is annoying.
Overall, if it’s on a super sale you could consider purchasing this and just waiting a year for the app to catch up. My recommendation, don’t buy it at all until they do the work on the app that they should have done before launching.

It was really disappointing as this was a birthday present but no matter how hard I tried I could not download the required app. I followed the instructions to the letter but just ended up going round and round in circles.
Honestly, a waste of time, effort and money.
