We have been working on STEM/ STEAM activities for some time now. While I have the science, math, art and engineering activities pretty well situated finding suitable technology has been harder for me to incorporate. When we look for new toys we are always looking at what and how the kids will be learning from them. By introducing children to the fun of coding and puzzle solving with this colorful, programmable mouse with a build-able customizable maze we have introduced our technology. This toy offers a great way to introduce young children to science, technology, engineering, and math. Children program the mouse with easy push-button controls to follow their created maze and find the cheese. The Mouse lights up and makes adorable sounds setup is perfect for tabletop or floor play. My children love setting the maze up in different ways. Children experience STEM through hands-on activities and experiments while challenging them to think critically, solve problems effectively. While this toy is definitely ideal for ages five plus my three year old also loves helping his big brother and sister set up the maze and he really enjoys watching the mouse after it has been programmed go through the maze. I have also let me try coding just on a much smaller scale where the mouse only needs to be programed one to five paces. If it is nice and simple my three year old can feel accomplished and we can work towards more complicated coding.There are also two different kinds of cards that come with the Learning Resources Stem Robot Mouse Coding Activity Set. One type of card is a maze card that shows examples of mazes you can setup, they help to give ideas. My kids do prefer creating their own mazes. But it is also a learning experience to try and duplicate and follow an example. The other type of card is one that helps with the coding. The cards have the symbols for the coding patterns so you lay out each card in front of you so you can see t

I really love the concept of this activity, and my 4 year old son enjoyed learning how to program the mouse. I was really excited to see him learning and understanding the concept of thinking ahead and planning the steps the mouse needed to take. However, the mouse stopped working the first day that we got the product (we received this free as part of a Chatterbox package). We tried brand new batteries, rechargeable batteries, everything. The mouse lights up and makes noises, but it does not move forward in any direction any longer. For the price, I would have been really disappointed in this lack of durability. I was considering purchasing another mouse so that he could continue to use the kit, but at a price of nearly $25, I am hesitant to buy it and have it not last either. I don't know if we got a fluke or what, but it was a bummer.** update to add that Learning Resources has contacted me and promised to send me a new mouse, which was really nice of them and I applaud them for standing behind their products. Will update once we receive this new mouse.

Is it tough enough?

Comments about Learning Resources Code & Go™ Robot Mouse Activity Set:
This is a great idea for coding! I even bought a second mouse. However after just a bit of use my blue code and go mouse doesn't go straight. It goes in circles . something is wrong with the metal ball at the tip! Can't find ant warranty info. If I could return it for a working model I would be happy. The extra purple mouse I bought works great.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Reviewer received a free sample of this product
This game challenged my gifted 7 year old in ways I couldn't do on my own. The patterns and methodology behind his thought process was fascinating. It takes a lot to grab his attention, but this game of skill and thinking certainly did.

So much fun!!
Awesome Coding Pack
from STAMFORD, CT, United States
We love this set. As a mom to children 7531I really appreciate the durability of this product. Solid quality plastic. :) and the pieces are just big enough that I don't panic when my boys are on the floor coding the mouse and the baby is crawling around. Each time I pull this set out my boys play together for hours. They love it. They experiment, try new things, coach each other, and focus together which is amazing. I agree with other reviewers that the green square pieces do not easily slide together. It was cleverly designed so no matter how they go the pieces can connect to each other, but I think I would have preferred rotating magnets instead of hooks that are just finicky. As for the coding cards, it's a great idea but I wish I would have read the picture on the back from card 1 to encourage my boys to "write down" what steps they programmed instead of just remember. It took a few days stuck at more challenging mazes for that habit to click. But for a toy that gets them all cheering together, this is very successful. We have already purchased a second set to use for racing/larger courses this winter. I received this product for free in exchange for my honest review from House Party/Chatterbox.
Fun set for children
from SAINT ALBANS, WV, United States
This is a really cool toy. It comes with lots of floor and barrier pieces to create many different paths for the mouse. The cards are really handy for younger children to make mazes for the mouse. The floor pieces are a little too hard for my youngest to connect by herself, so this could make some children frustrated. I also wish it came with some little bags for the smaller pieces for storage, especially with the hole in the box. This is a great toy for multiple age children to play with together. This product was received for free from house party to test out with my children.
Lots of family fun
from SAHUARITA, AZ, United States
We were so excited to be selected for this Chatterbox program! My daugher is in pre-school, and she is very interested in learning anything and everything right now. She shows interest in activities and games that are what I consider to be above preschool level, and we already recieve monthly STEM activity boxes for her which she loves. The Code & Go™ Robot Mouse Activity Set did not dissapoint! We were all excited to open it and get coding right away! The pieces are simple and relatively easy to set up and move around, and the instructions are written clearly. I appreciate the quick start guide. It did require some adult assembly and instruction to get her started with this, but within 30 minutes or so she was having a blast figuring out codes for the "robot mouse". It is fun for our whole family, and is a particuarly good bonding activity for my "techy" husband to do with her. The two of them set up many race tracks before I could even finish cooking dinner. One piece of feedback is that at first my husband especially was very nervous about the floorpieces breaking. They seem a little challenging to put together and move around easily, and we were pretty sure if left to her own devices our usually careful but excited daughter would still probabable snap a plastic piece off somewhere. But, since we were given this toy to test, test it we did! For the rest of the evening we allowed her to move the pieces on her own and only helped if requested. Nothing broke! The whole time we have had this toy and have been using it we have left the setup up to her in this way without incident. Apparently it seems some thought and testing was given to this particular scenario one often faces with kids toys and games. Istill have to dock a star though because I feel like the floor/base pieces could use some fine tuning as to how they fit and stay together.The arches and purple maze walls ad fun color and interest, and the little mouse and its noises are adoreable! For an educational game this is really a fun idea, and I am ipressed with the quality and entertainment value for a wide age range.The guidance cards are great to have, but we are a "dig right in" hands on type of family, so we have found ourselves not using the cards so much and just making our ouwn adventures. For children who learn well with and enjoy flash cards, I can see them being a great gudeas they are fun and easy to use.I think based on what we have experienced with this toy, I would recommend it at full price. Hours of entertainment and bonding time will be well worth the small investment. I received a free Chat Pack to test and give my honest feedback on this product.
Great Intro to Coding
from PIKESVILLE, MD, United States
We received a free ChatPack to test the Code and Go Robot Mouse Activity. Let me just say that my 7 year old son was not disappointed!The set includes pieces to make different mazes, a piece of "cheese", and a cute robot mouse. The mazes were difficult to assemble at first but got much easier with practice. The mouse has large, simple buttons which are perfect for little hands. My son's favorite way to play is the more advanced way without the base pieces to the mazes. He really gets a kick out of programming the mouse to travel around the floor to get to the cheese!
Great toy for the budding techie!
from MARION, KY, United States
My five year old is very into STEM activities, and since my husband is an engineer we've been very enthusiastic about supporting and encouraging those interests. The code and go mouse is a great way to teach basic concepts of coding while still holding the interest of an energetic kindergartener. He has a blast completing the successively more difficult mazes we'd create, and he was so proud each time the mouse reached the cheese. This a great quality, very engaging toy, and our entire family enjoyed it. It's definitely one we'll be bringing out frequently!
Bonding Experience for my boys
from N SMITHFIELD, RI, United States
I received the Code & Go Robot mouse as part of a chat pack from Chatterbox...My boys (6 and 9 years old) had a great time playing with this. It was great to see them using it together. Set up was a bit tricky to get the squares to stay together but aside from that it was a breeze. Now I cant seem to get them away from Colby. =)
from LIVINGSTON, NJ, United States
Both of my kids (8&4) loved it! My 8 year old loved that she could follow the design cards and my 4 year old loved coming up with his own plan for Colby. They even worked together to se if they could get Colby to reach our cat! This was a great product that I would recommend to anyone especially looking for a great gift for preschool/kindergarten age children.
