“Robo Coding Saga, our new programmable robotics kit, will let you learn to code in an organic and natural way while everyone has fun in the process. It requires no previous knowledge, as it is powered by imagination, creativity, and curiosity. You can get started with Robo Coding Saga by following in-app challenges and stories through the community tab, as well as creating your own projects which you can share with the Robo Wunderkind community. We have already shipped 10,000 units of our first-generation product and we have thousands of happy customers in more than 60 countries. All units come with a 1-year WARRANTY.”
“Robo Wunderkind blocks have been designed to be so simple that even a 5-year-old can figure them out. Color-coded by functions, they make it super easy to build something you have in mind by simply snapping the blocks together. Each block has been carefully redesigned and improved. Better looks, haptics and user experience. Still backwards and LEGO™ compatible. Robo Wunderkind is compatible with LEGO™ bricks, LEGO™ Technic, and LEGO™ Duplo parts. The current box of toys integrates seamlessly and kids will have the freedom to use their imagination to create whatever they can dream of.“
