5 star idea, 2 star execution.

5 star idea, 2 star execution. I like that you get to build it yourself, but the pieces aren't built to last. We constantly have to take it apart and put it back together. The on/off switch feels like it's about to break off. The product isn't currently working away from the computer and not charging. The hole to charging port is too small for to use other cords. My kid loves it when it works, but unfortunately doesn't seem built to last, and certainly not worth $80.

Great for the Right Ages

We got this along with the Kano computer kit. After building the computer kit, we realized that this was a little below my 12-year-old's interest level, so we have the pixel kit to a friend with younger children. But just from looking at the kit, everything is well-made, and I think these kits are great teaching tools if used with the right ages.

Microphone not included! Not the Kickstarter edition

The YouTube videos you see are probably for the Kickstarter edition. The microphone will only work for the pre-loaded apps. To complete the exercises you'll need a microphone attached to your personal computer. Which also means you cannot use the Kano Pixel standalone. Also, the only programs you can save on the Pixel are animations. The programs your kid writes can't be stored on it.

Non Functional After Day One

BUYER BEWARE. Purchased this for our daughter for Christmas. She enjoyed it -- for the few hours it worked. After initial hours of set up and learning the details of the coding process, the unit ceased to function. No child enjoys having his/her gifts break before even a second day of use. All use was adult supervised -- so we're sure she did not abuse the unit in any way. We will be returning and not re-ordering. Such a disappointment for our STEM-oriented girl. :(

Misleading and useless

This is not the Kickstarter version. I purchased this item for my daughter for Christmas and am very very disappointed in it. The Kano App and the Pixel Kit itself indicate that one can upload created apps to the device. This is not true. This kit only works when attached to a computer running the Kano App. Only the preinstalled apps work when not plugged into the computer. My daughter was very proud of what she created, but cannot show it to anyone when it is not connected to the computer. I am aware that items were removed for the kit to reduce the price compared to the Kickstarter version, but it has not been made clear what this version is capable (or NOT capable) of doing. I'm finding that it is lacking the basic functions that it would be expected to have – like transferring creations from the computer to the Pixel Kit. We might as well just be playing with the app, and not the kit itself at all. I have been a software engineer for 15 years and the Kano App interface is good for young kids, but the lack of transparency into what one is purchasing is despicable. I would not recommend this to anyone.

Great toy for curious learners

HomeMama - 2 years ago
I expected this to be neat, but I was absolutely blown away. Easy to put together will really clever instructions for kids. The built in modes are great and work perfectly for peaking curiosity to build different things in STEM. And this is where it really shines. It teaches STEM programming by having you follow steps as it explains why you are doing it, and then shows the output in real time on the device. Brilliant! It's so less frustrating when you can see right away if the programming is working. After a few modules, you can start to see how things work together and explore outside the pre-scripted programs, be it simple or trying to use logic to plan ahead. Fantastic learning tool disguised as a toy.

I've been trying to get my 8 year old step-son into coding & just generally learning about computers for some time now & this really did help. He did need some assistance with the set-up & use, but that would definitely fluctuate depending on the child. He loves this & has been picking it over video games often so I'm thrilled. I've read several reviews about the disappointment of needing a computer to "really" use it; personally that didn't botherme, but the memory isn't great & I feel that a lot of the more complex coding isn't easily saved. I've even noticed we've been trying to replicate some of the features it rather than figuring out the save (which is the main reason I just couldn't give this a 5 star review). It does remind me of a very advanced Lite Brite & I've caught myself playing with the Kano Pixel Kit while he's at school :)

Great for tech savvy kids, or kids whose parents can help them

Targetfanatx - 2 years ago
I think this is a great little gadget. However, it probably wasn't a great time for us to open and set it up. My 8 year old had a very easy time assembling this. However, once it got into the programming part, I couldn't help her, and her older brothers, who do have the computer knowledge, have been too busy with school to help her. We didn't get too far, but hopefully with the holidays coming up we'll have more time to play with this as a family. Perhaps a relatively tech savvy child can program with this "toy", but if your child needs help, I think there is some considerable parent involvement required. It's a great start for getting kids to think about technology, though, so I still recommend this toy.
