SmartLab ReCon 6.0 Programmable Rover Review and Giveaway...

We recently had the chance to review the ReCon 6.0 Programmable Rover from SmartLab Toys.
About the ReCon 6.0 Programmable Rover:
"The Programmable Rover is a toy, a robot, and a tool for learning. A child programs ReCon 6.0 to navigate specified courses that can deliver a treat to a pet, surprise a family member with a personalized message, carry a soda, guard a bedroom, or just dance. NO COMPUTER REQUIRED!
Get to know your ReCon Rover with the spiral-bound Owner’s Manual, which begins with guided projects, but builds to more advanced operating techniques to get your Rover rolling! This cleverly crafted guide concludes with room for taking notes and charting one’s own adventures. Rover-related sound bites­ help to expand a child’s world beyond the play experience."


What we thought: This rover is great for tech loving kiddos and adults alike. The Mission Book is full of fun coding procedures you can program into your rover. The kiddos thought the variety of things we could get the rover to do was pretty neat, but the programming part is definitely suitable for older kiddos. This little guy was a lot of fun and could easily keep your budding robot lover/programmer busy for hours of educational fun:) ABCD Diaries gives the ReCon 6.0 Programmable Rover an A+!


Buy It: The ReCon 6.0 Programmable Rover is $69.99 and is available at http://www.smartlabtoys.com/recon-6-0-programmable-rover.html, Amazon.com and other select retailers.


Win It: SmartLab has generously offered one ABCD Diaries reader a ReCon 6.0 Programmable Rover! To enter, follow our blog via GFC and comment below.

  162. It was educational, just right for the children. It's a fun gift but also requires some math skills to program. I bought a mechanical toy for my son. This is a great toy for the tech. Provides enough challenge for them to learn how to program. You should try it :)
