TOP WINNER 3 YEARS+

Learn the basic principles of coding with this programmable robot. An easy-to-use remote enables children to program Botley to move forward, turn right or left, reverse, avoid or detect an object, make a sound, create a loop and repeat a sequence. It comes with a stack of accessories to create obstacle courses: cubes, cones, flags, two balls, a goal and detachable robot arms that allow Botley to move objects.

Testers Say

‘Botley makes abstract concepts concrete and gets children excited about coding. Our four-to-eight year olds enjoyed plotting mazes and (without realising it) using their logic to programme Botley out of some dire situations.’
