These kids of mine, they love to travel and they love to learn. When I had the chance to check out of the Shifu Orboot Educational Globe I was absolutely going to do it. I knew that the kids would be super curious about all the locations on the globe and what they could do with it. I was not wrong. Andrew took to it right away. I think partially in part to the fact that he had lost iPad privileges earlier in the day, but because Dad had to do this review he was able to be near an iPad. The other part was that he is a naturally curious kid and playing learning games is something that he enjoys. The Shifu Orboot did not disappoint. Take a look at the Orboot in action.
Exactly one year ago I posted a review of the Cue Robot from Wonder Works. Wonder Workshop sent me that Cue Robot for free to review and play with. They asked me to tell you all about the new features. So, what better day to give you my honest opinions of the updated Cue Robot then a year later! There have been some updates to share with you on this amazing little robot with personality. Four personalities, actually.
One of the new updates to the app is that all of the Cue Avatars are now free. I think they used to be $5 each. Each of the personalities are distinct and have different names. There are avatars Charge, Zest, Pep and Smirk. Each of their personalities are fun in their own way. We enjoy them all but I think that Eva likes Pep the best.
Cue can do so many things. You can drive Cue around like a remote control toy. You can chat with the Cue Avatar via text using the Cue App. You can code Cue to do simple as well as complex maneuvers. It is a great little robot to use to learn the basics of coding. You and Cue can also go on little missions together. Finding treasure and so much more. In the video below we are searching for treasure.
