The Ozobot is sure to delight and engage a child new tot programming. My 10 to 13-year-olds have loved using this and designing their own courses for the robot to follow. My six-year-old enjoys putting the Ozobot on the premade course.

Pros: 

  • fun for kids
  • easy to use
  • worth the price ($49.99)
  • works for a variety of ages
  • potential to grow with child

  • somewhat limited for robot

Conclusion:

My kids enjoyed these, I found them affordable and don’t really have anything I would want to change. For this reason, I am giving the Ozobot Starter Pack a 5 out of 5 stars.
