Robo Wunderkind! A Coding & Robotic’s set for kids!

STEM Toys! These are becoming more and more popular and I for one, am super excited to see more and more of them! As a child plays with STEM sets, they are playing as well as learning. My boys love to learn, they are like little sponges, soaking up everything that they can… Good.. or bad..! Ha!

When asked to review this, I was beyond excited!

We were sent the Education Robotics Set.

Description:

Ready for some more? Education Kit is the perfect addition to any kids – or classroom. With the added distance sensor, the builds become more functional and versatile, allowing the young explorers to easily grasp complex coding concepts like triggers, routines and conditionals. Build with your hands, apply your imagination to create Robo’s next task and use your brain muscle to make it work. Robo Wunderkind is the perfect combo of STEAM and fun, created by educators, engineers and designers for the endless hours of engaging play.

There are projects that you can create that are listed in the apps guide or you can create something on your own! Oh course my son wanted to wing it and figure it all out on his own! He created a robot and named it LJ, after his brother! Ha! It was really sweet.

Each piece has its own function and the start up booklet explains what each piece does. There is so much to this! As the child gets to use this more and more the more they will experiment more and more with the pieces.

Robo Code_3

There are two apps that you can use with the Robo Wunderkind sets. This one is the Robo Code app. You can find and download these apps from Google Play or the App Store.

This app let’s you code your creation. You can code really simple things or advance! Like I said, as your child gets familiar with it, the more they will learn and experiment! We started out really simple!

You can do all kinds of things here, sounds, movement, speed.. so much! We are STILL learning new things!

The Robo Code app opens the world of programming for kids. With its child-friendly design and intuitive coding process, this app guides children in learning 21st-century skills in a fun and easy way. Together with Robo Wunderkind robotics kits, it makes coding and robotics child’s play. Designed for iOS, Android, and Windows. Requires a device with Bluetooth 4.0.

Robo Live_2

Ok, so this is the Robo Live app. SO SO cool! I would recommend starting out with this before the Robo Code app. This is super simple to use and your child can get familiar with all of the controls and how everything works.

You can reposition the controls, add or remove controls, add sounds, record, name and more!

The Robo Live App allows you to set up a remote control interface to control your robot in real time. Play with your robotic friends by using drag and drop functions on the app’s dashboard, and control your robots’ actions, such as driving, turning, making sounds, blinking, and other. Designed for iOS, Android, and Windows. Requires a device with Bluetooth 4.0.

They have new building blocks coming out soon! Like a camera and an IR Blaster and Receiver! They also offer a start kit and an upgrade kit.

Check out more about Robo Wunderkind on their website.

The Education Robotics set retails for $249… I know this may sound like a hefty price, but it is worth every penny! I am very honest when it comes to price when I review products. This set is true to the labeling of “Robotics”. I can honestly say I haven’t seen a set quite like this. It’s so advanced, yet something kids can use, play and learn with!

This is what is included in this set:

8 Blocks:

  • Main Block
  • Distance Sensor
  • 2x DC Motors
  • Servo Motor
  • RGB Light
  • Button
  • Connector Block

Other parts:

  • 3x Wheels
  • 6x Connectors
  • Wired Connector
  • 4x Lego™ adapters
  • Charging cable

The set even has a tool that you use to take off the connectors, which is soooo cool! It’s so easy and simple!.

It also had LEGO adapters so kids can build something with LEGOs on these adapters and then can connect it to their creation! I mean.. come one..how cool is that?? It’s really like it never ends.. there is so much to this and I know I am probably going to miss mentioning something!

You can purchase these sets directly from their website or the Robotics & Starter sets can be found on Amazon as well.

Recommended age is 6+ which is spot on in my opinion. My oldest son just turned 6 and he had no problem playing and understanding this set.

There is also a fun cross word puzzle included too and you use this little colored coder piece to see what the letters are! How fun is that? They creatures have super fun names too! There are 6 to collect in this series.

Tilt the capsule and watch the ooze disappear! Soft, nacho cheese scented, slow-rising foam. Use secret decoder to discover and play the bonus word game. These elusive creatures have escaped from the secret lab on the outskirts of Smooshyville! Each capsule comes with a mystery nacho cheese-scented, slow-rising squishy Creature and Buddy, sticker, secret decoder, and collector’s poster with bonus word search

These would make great stocking stuffers! They retail for around $10 and can be found at Walmart.

TerraSect by Alpha Toys, A whole new RC experience! One of Walmart’s Top Holiday Toys of 2018.

RC cars, a classic toy.. am I right?

Well… this TerraSect is way more than just an RC!  Alpha Toys (The Alpha Group US) has created an insect like RC that can jump, tumble, room and zoom! Super easy to use, but wow.. can this thing do so much!

It is also featured as one of Walmart’s Top Holiday Toys of 2018! This TerraSect is also featured on a lot of other holiday guides!

We spent over an hour playing with the TerraSect. The boys thought it was so so awesome, they wanted to keep touching it.. ha.. boys! It literally rolls and jumps! It’s for both indoor and outdoor play. We really wanted to take it for a spin outside, but with the fall conditions (more like winter conditions but with rain ha!) we had to keep all of the fun inside.

My hubby helped me with the video for our youtube channel, and so glad he did! He has had many RC’s growing up and had so many ideas as to how to play with the TerraSect.

My hubby’s idea.. put it on his arm ha!

IMG_8050

Look at the TerraSect’s eyes! Ahh.. so cool! It’s super sturdy too! Like heavy duty! No lie!

 

TerraSect from Alpha Toys is available at Walmart, Target, Amazon and other retailers were cool toys are sold! TerraSect retails for around $25 – $35 buckaroos! GREAT price?? I was so shocked when I seen how affordable it was. This is definitely going to be on our holiday guide!

I heard that Target is offering free holiday shipping with a NO minimum purchase amount! So it you don’t have Amazon Prime, that is something to definitely check out.

  • Wild transformation: from vehicle to ball, back to vehicle again with easy to use trigger button
  • Indoor/outdoor use
  • 2.4 GHz control
  • Drives as vehicle mode super-fast!
  • Relentless rolling attack: TerraSect can flip itself back over and keep on going!
  • Light up eyes
  • TerraSect runs on 4xAA batteries and 3xAAA for controller (not included)

Want to see the TerraSect in action?? Yes.. I know you do! So here is our video review:

 

Just imagine what you can do with it outside!

That will be a whole other video that we will need to do once the sun decides to shine again!

Spin ‘N Saucer By Radio Flyer

Hello Dreamers!

YAY!! FALL IS IN THE AIR! I am so excited! (Hence the leaves in the picture! HEHE)

Spin ‘N Saucer By Radio Flyer. This thing is so much fun! Even Mommy B took it for a spin! If you are going down a hill on this make sure you wear a helmet and knee pads!

This was perfect to take to the park and small enough to fit in a small trunk of a car. This is totally an active toy! Zieke was super tired after playing on it for a while.

Watch this fun video!

Zieke actually at on this and ending up rolling down a hill! Luckily he wasn’t hurt! He kept screaming, “Let’s do that again”! Haha Mommy B almost had a heart attack! lol

 

A little more about us:

I have been a stay at home mom for about 2.5 years now. I actually do work part time from home which I am sooo thankful for. With this job I have learned ALL about social media, therefore, It has helped so much with this love of vlogging with my boys! I still learn new things everyday.

Well, I guess I should go warm up my cup of coffee (for the 2nd time lol) and start my crazy videoing, working, playing day!

Peace dreamers..

A little more about us:

During this hunt, Zieke was super excited about it, LJ.. well he is kinda in his own world most of the time.. LOL.. as you can tell my sister walked about with him most of the time in this video. (Baby A was with my mom). It’s amazing how different they are.. Love them for who they are though, even though it may be challenging.. I wouldn’t change it.

Thanks for all of your support dreamers!
