Learning Resources Code & Go Robot Mouse Activity Set Review – Popular products years ago were the jigsaw puzzles. You had to put them together, figure out which piece went where and with this you were introduced to puzzle solving at an early age.
In today’s technological world not many children like taking the time to put jigsaw puzzles together. They would rather have something that is electronic, will move around and make noises. So to introduce them to puzzle solving and coding the Learning Resources company has introduced the Learning Resources Code & Go Robot Mouse Activity Set. It has everything a child could want in a toy and makes learning and solving puzzles fun for younger children.
Children love brightly colored objects so the Learning Resources Code & Go Robot Mouse Activity Set has many different colors, all of them bright and engaging. The mouse in this set has several buttons on its back that allow a child to program which way the mouse will go. This is an introduction to puzzle solving because a maze comes in this set and children have to maneuver the mouse through the maze to get to the cheese.
Now, this maze can be taken apart and rearranged to give children hours of fun because they have to change how the mouse moves through each maze. There are two speeds on this mouse and it will light up as it is moving around, not to mention it also has sounds. Every child likes noisy toys so the sounds are sure to delight them.
Now, this mouse can be used on different surfaces, tabletop, on the maze grids or on hard flooring.
Another skill the Learning Resources Code & Go Robot Mouse Activity Set promotes is coding. The way it does this is with coding cards that can be laid down to create a step by step path for the mouse to follow. Building the maze is fun and easy. A child can create their own maze or they can use one of the included flash cards with a maze already on it and follow the instructions to create it.
The mouse can be programmed to do up to 40 steps so that it can find its way through the maze to the cheese. Another mouse can be purchased separately so that children can race each other through to maze. Having a challenge to beat a friend in a race can be encouragement for children to try harder to figure out which way to have their mouse go.
The Learning Resources Code & Go Robot Mouse Activity Set is a great product that makes learning different skills fun for children ages 5 and up. To make the mouse run you will need 3 AAA batteries. The price for this product is not really high at $39.79 (as of 10/27/2016 at Amazon). Every child will enjoy playing with the Learning Resources Code & Go Robot Mouse Activity Set while at the same time they will be honing skills that can be put to use as they grow up.
