Botley, from Learning Resources, is the fun, friendly way for young children to learn coding and, unlike most coding robots aimed at older kids, doesn’t require a tablet or smartphone. Ready to use straight out of the box, Botley is the only robot on the market that comes with a full activity set, allowing children to create obstacle courses for endless hours of coding fun.
These resources also grow with the child. They start with basic coding commands and, as their skills grow, they can try more advanced coding challenges with their robot friend, meaning older kids can enjoy Botley too. There are many features to discover including black line following and smart logic to detect objects (and avoid them). Botley even makes playful sounds and has hidden features for children to discover.
The ideal introduction to coding, Botley encourages early programming skills while developing critical thinking and problem solving in young learners.
Botley™ The Coding Robot Action Challenge Accessory Set
Engage children as young as 5 in a basic form of coding and logic with this 40-piece accessory set. It enables users to extend the learning and test their skills with Botley even further!

Support and build STEM skills with Machines in Motion. This set develops fine motor skills as children put cogs and gears together. They can mix and match the pieces to provide hands-on learning and play possibilities.

- Sturdy plastic gears
- Wrecking ball

Stems is the incredibly flexible ‘maker’ toy that stimulates STEM learning through creative construction. Every Stem is exactly the same simple shape, they are so bendy that you only need this one shape to make pretty much anything you can imagine! Incredibly tactile and brightly coloured, Stems’ possibilities are as unlimited as a child’s imagination! Strong, lightweight and very portable Stems deliver long lasting play value as one bright colourful creation follows another.
