Value for Money
- January 9th, 2022Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Amazing!SE25 |I would recommend this to a friend!This is an absolutely incredible toy. My son just turned 6 and I would describe it as completely appropriate to his age - he can use it without my help and is enjoying it so much, both doing the suggested builds and programmes or just messing around. The whole thing is so well thought out and intuitive: even just the fact the app can switch between programming with icons or with words depending on age and reading ability is brilliant. The stories and builds in the app are very engaging and show children how they can use the different building materials and programming instructions in a very accessible and easy way. It makes for a really satisfying introduction to programming - even though it was way, way more than I would normally ever spend on a birthday present I haven’t regretted buying it.Play Experience5.0Value for Money5.0Was this helpful?55LEGO® Education SPIKE™ Essential Set
