Children's age influences the selection of the best robot to play, experiment and learn with. If it is too simple and does not represent a challenge, they will get bored quickly and if it is too complex they will lose interest.
Age categories are only a guideline because the evolution and interests of each child varies wildly. But you can use it to assess the different options in robots, kits to learn programming and STEM toys. We hope it will serve as a frame of reference for choosing the best robot or robotic kit.
We have grouped the robots into three age groups
- Robots for 3-5 years old.
- Robots for 6-9 years old.
- Robots for 10 years and up.
