The mouse itself is very cute; the commands are easy to implement.
I did take one star off for a couple of minor annoyances:
-- the mouse doesn't always precisely execute each turn, which means it may end up going off course. It's not so bad as to affect the algorithm unless you have many-many moves, but it means the mouse can run into the purple walls when there's a tight turn.
-- whenever the mouse finds "cheese", it stops executing instructions, even if it had a further sequence programmed. I can see why they made it this way, but it also makes it impossible to program the "go there, get the cheese and bring it back here" kind of programs.
-- kids need to remember to press "erase memory" in order to program a new sequence. I do understand this choice though -- otherwise there would be no memory at all if you think too long between adding new instructions, and that would be even more annoying.
On the plus side, this is one of those games where the "puzzles" are not limited by the number of instruction cards. It's very easy for a parent (or for a kid themselves) to make up their own puzzles.
Our youngest one just turned 3, and he's still struggling with the concept of programming the mouse, but he likes it and is definitely getting some idea. Our next oldest is 8, and she's already programming (in scratch and trying out python), so this is "too simple" for her, but the mouse is cute enough to keep both her attention and her 11 year old's brother, and make them interested in playing with their younger brother.
On a funny note, our youngest was actually quite hesitant about touching the mouse at first (he was a bit scared of it). And even now, when it's running, he makes sure to get out of the way.
I bought this Code & Go Robot Mouse because on a snowy day I took my son to the library. With the building virtually dead, the librarian in the Children's section broke out a Primo Cubetto. My son lit up and played with it for over an hour. When I asked him what he was doing while I looking for books, he explained that he was coding and that he wanted a Cubetto. I had no idea he knew anything about coding, but I saw the Cubetto before and knew it was over $200 and probably would not get much use. So, after a search for a coding toy that does not make use of a screen, I found this Robot Mouse. This has the perfect combination of working with a robot and coding.
What's in the box? You get 16 green tile squares, purple removable walls, three orange tunnels, a cheese, a mouse, directional cards, and challenge cards. The idea is to guide the mouse through the "maze" to the cheese. The tiles snap together and the purple walls fit into slots between the tiles. The mouse has directional buttons on his back. He also has an action button, a go button, and a clear button. First you set up the green tile according to the challenge cards placing walls and tunnels as shown on the card. Then you place your mouse down as shown. Then you need to figure out how many steps and turns the mouse needs to take to get to the cheese. The directional cards help you keep track to program the mouse. You will need 3 AAA batteries for this.
So far so good! My son is still fascinated with coding. It's helping him learn directions such as left and right. It also helps with thinking ahead skills and patience. Now I only gave four starts because other reviewers have warned against issues with the mouse. I have been extremely strict with my son and he's not allowed to touch him (Colby) unless he's pushing a button to program him. The natural tendency in my son is to push, move, and physically play with the mouse. He just has to touch everything and he's a big car and truck guy so if it moves it has to touched. So, follow the manufacturer's and the other reviewers' advice and be extremely careful with it and you should be fine.
