Timberdoodle's review
ROBOTIS OLLO Explorer Robot Kit
The OLLO system was developed with robotics education in mind. OLLO Explorer Educational Robot Kit is a twelve-week course complete with a reconfigurable robot to build and program.

Raising Future Robotics Engineers
Although a robot is simply a multifunctional programmable machine, raising future robotics engineers is not so simple. Not only will these children require knowledge in computers and electronic systems, but also an understanding of sensors and how they work. Research has found that the teaching of robotics in conjunction with the building of working models will boost an understanding of algebra, biology, and physics, plus challenge a whole spectrum of thinking skills that may otherwise be overlooked.

Quickly and Easily Customize Rugged Models
With innovative two-part rivets, OLLO Explorer robots are easy to make and take apart. The modular building system allows you to build custom robots very quickly, and the rugged pieces will not break with repeated use. As children design and redesign their models, they need to be able to quickly reconfigure their robot, and OLLO Explorer allows for that. And unlike "brick" robotics sets, OLLO Explorer Educational Robot Kit's robust models will not fall apart.

Detailed Manual with Intriguing Projects
OLLO Explorer, with its week-by-week lessons and twelve intriguing projects with well-thought-out goals, is the best we have seen for younger children. The included OLLO Explorer manual is detailed and well-illustrated, and with the exception of a couple of translation or editing faux pas, the instructions are abundantly clear. The simple weekly quizzes to reinforce main concepts are the only consumable part of this kit, unless you count the batteries. If you wish to reuse this curriculum indefinitely, just have your child answer any questions on a separate piece of paper.

Learning Robotics Has Never Been Easier
While there is a fast-moving trend to get robots in schools (there are around 10,000 robotics teams in schools around the USA), you may have felt that teaching robotics at home was too difficult and too expensive. But with the advent of the OLLO Explorer curriculum, learning robotics has never been easier, more affordable, or more fun. OLLO Explorer Educational Robot Kit requires two 'AA' batteries (not included). Suitable for children ten and older, but if you have an eager eight-year-old with fine motor skills, I would not hesitate to turn him loose with this course.

    Overall Good Product April 13, 2014
    Reviewer: Suzanne D.  
    My son has been working on this kit, but has had some trouble with some of the pieces. However, Timberdoodle took care of it right away and made it right sending us the piece we needed. It is more challenging than the first set but we are enjoying the challenge.

    Ollo Explorer Robot Kit December 2, 2013
    Reviewer: Valorie P.  
    My 13 year old daughter received this for her birthday. She loves it and so does her sister. Besides being fun creating, it is teaching them to be more thorough in reading and following instructions.

    This one is a WINNER! January 16, 2013
    Reviewer: Alicia Thorson  
    Wow! As soon as I saw this kit, I just knew my 4th grade son had to have it. He was just THRILLED to have his own ROBOTICS class! The kit is well put together, has easy to follow directions, but is still challenging, & requires the child to think! I love that we have found something to stimulate his love for this kind of learning, & that every class is different! There are so many things to do, & he never, ever gets tired of it. Bravo, OLLO!
