Cubelets Curiosity Set

The Cubelets Curiosity Set contains everything your child needs to begin learning the fundamentals of robotics. Parents were effusive in their praise and excitement over this educational kit that stimulates young minds and helps them develop new ways of learning. The set comes with multiple “sense” cubes, “think” cubes, and “act” cubes, As well as a Bluetooth “hat” which connects everything so that they can all work together in the creation of unlimited constructs. Your kids are in complete control of how and what they build. Theres really no right or wrong which thrilled testers. The instruction manual is extremely well-written and simple to follow. First, it walks children through the basics and explains how each of the cubelets work. Next, it walks the child through the building of a simple robot using one type of each cube. The cubes connect via strong magnets and the results of the individual robots and what their capabilities are is all dependent upon how they are connected. Once kids start seeing how the cubes work together, parents told us they could see the light bulbs going off in their children’s heads. They eagerly began expanding and building other simple robots. Since the kit has connectors that are compatible with Legos, the next step after programming is bringing their Legos to life! The aforementioned Bluetooth hat seamlessly syncs with the mobile app, allowing children to control the robot remotely. The AI of the app immediately senses if kids re-create the robot in a different configuration, taking less than 10 seconds to reconnect. These cubelets can be used at a fairly young age, since they are so well made, so you dont need to worry about a younger child damaging them. As they grow older, the cubelets will help develop their critical thinking skills as they gain a more in-depth understanding of robotics. A note from testers to other parents: Be prepared to help, work with, and encourage your child on their robot building journey and along the way you’ll have a blast too!

HOW IT WORKS

A Seal of Approval review involves a multi-step process conducted over an eight-week period.

Parents and children, experience and review submitted products and services either already released or coming to market.

Participants fill out questionnaires for each product or service they test. They score based on 13 levels of criteria including quality, appeal, design, price, packaging, directions, desirability, stimulation, replay factor and more. Results are based on both statistical averaging and comments received by testers.

There are three testing periods each year:
