Ozobot, A Hot New Tech Toy #GiftIdea



Hey neighbors!

Meet Ozobot!  The tiny little game piece that interacts with you and your tablet.  You can play with Ozobot with or without a tablet, but having a tablet really increases the fun!  Ozobot is a super #GiftIdea for the techie in your life, whether young or old.

The picture below shows what came in my set.  There were two Ozobots, one black and one white skin, two bonus skins, two carry pods and two USB chargers.  You can purchase the Ozobots as a set of two ($99.99) or purchase a single Ozobot ($49.99).


Ozobot will follow color coded lines and designs that you create.  Using color codes you can make him move, dance, play and just have fun.



The Draw App was free to download and they have the App available in both Android and IOS.  We used my iPad Mini for our review, but I think my daughter is going to download it to her tablet also.  We played a couple of the drawing games.  My daughter (14), caught on before I did.  There is a page that shows the color codes and what response they cause.  The chart is a big help when you first start out.  There are supposed to be more apps coming out soon. The Drawing App has three options to choose from: Freedraw, Playground and Challenge.  On their website you will also find a place where you can print off games.




The part my daughter really liked though, had nothing to do with an app.  We took several sheets of printer paper and drew our own track for our Ozobots.  We started out with just the black marker, and then started adding the other colors also.  You do need to make your lines a little bit wider than just a fine line.  We found out our little Ozobots became confused if the line was too narrow.  The best markers to use are sharpies or Crayola markers.  After we started adding some different colors my daughter went a little wild, adding more and more to the track.  She finally had to add more paper!


Your child or you, will in a sense be earning programming, using colors to program the Ozobot.  As they become more familiar with the Ozobot and the coding they will be able to create their own games and play.  Also as people continue to work with the Ozobot I have a feeling more apps will come available.

My entire family enjoyed the Ozobot and were actually impressed at the Ozobot's ability to follow the path.  As each one arrived home we had to show them how it worked on her design that she drew.  We are going to take it on our trip with us for entertainment, both in the vehicle with the app and then later at the hotel.

Please take a moment and follow Ozobot on their social media pages:

One neighbor will receive their very own Ozobot.  What a great gift idea, neighbors!  Thank you for stopping by today!
