Botley the coding robot, intended for ages 5 and up and 2019 toy of the year, provides children with introductory STEM and coding learning opportunities. With his remote programmer, obstacle detection, and black line following capabilities, program Botley to traverse obstacle courses and help him along on grand adventures or use his detachable arms to deliver objects to friends and family. Botley’s interface is completely screen free, encouraging your child to learn and play off screen.
We have two different sets available: Our first, smaller, set includes the Botley robot, removable arms, a remote programmer, and 40 coding cards to help children visualize the direction they program for Botley. Place a hold on this set.
Our second set includes everything from the first as well as obstacle course accessories including cones, bricks, and flags. This set also includes puzzle-piece boards to use with Botley’s black line following feature. Place a hold on this set.
Botley robots are available to check out for two weeks at a time. No more than one robot at a time per family, please! Batteries are not included (requires 5 AAA batteries).
