Timberdoodle's review
Instruction Sheet

The ReCon 6.0 Programmable Rover is much more than a toy; it is a robot, a tool for learning the basic fundamentals of programming, and the ideal little-brother-pest machine. Your child will be able to program the ReCon 6.0 to navigate specified courses to deliver a snack to a brother, surprise a sister with a silly message, carry a bottle for the baby, or guard the bedroom. The onboard computer's memory bank stores nine trips with up to fifty commands. The sound file banks not only come with prerecorded sound effects, but four sound files are also available for your child to record himself.

An Amazing Introduction to Programming
Sound-activated lighting and a rotating head give the ReCon 6.0 an appealing personality. With a colorful, spiral-bound owner's manual, your child will work through guided projects while building familiarity for the more advanced operating techniques. This is an amazing introduction to programming for a remarkably low price! For ages eight and older.

Requires three 'C' batteries, not included.

Great Product for Hand On Learners May 31, 2012
Reviewer: MomOf4  
We purchased this robot for our 10 yr. old son as a Christmas gift. He loved it and still does. In no time at all, he had it delivering cokes to his Dad, dancing, & all sorts of things. He loves the recording feature on it so that he can make it talk and respond to people. As a homeschooling Mom, I love the educational aspects of it. While he is "playing" he is learning computer programming skills, math, critical thinking, creative thinking, & much more. I also like that it is a very durable product. Our son is all boy; active, rough, & tough; and this robot has stood the test with him. Great product, Timberdoodle!!

Recon Rover February 1, 2012
Reviewer: Chantelle Grubbs from Trussville, AL United States  
We purchased this to give to our 11 year son for Christmas this year.  He LOVES it!  It was definetly his number #1 favorite gift!  He made 5 or 6 programs for his Rover in the first day, recorded his voice so it could "speak", and used the programs repeatedly.  He proudly showed it off to grandparents a few days later.  

I think it has helped him to understand that computer programming requires lots of little steps to get small actions, but by having a "cool" robot to do those actions it makes it fun.

He continues to enjoy it and I can see hours of fun with this little robot!
