Idea: add a character controlled by human, interact with the cat for it to react (yelling when touched...)
Learn programming and play with Botzees
(Q-1) What is Botzees robot
Botzees is a coding robotics kit for kids ages 4 and up, that combines creativity, construction, and coding.
Kids can program and code 6 different pre-designed Botzees or create their own! Botzees can be taught to move, drum, dance, make sounds, and light up using the free app.
130 uniquely shaped, easy-to-grip blocks with rounded edges will inspire kids imagination with tactile, tangible hands-on learning. And then the 30 interactive Augmented Reality puzzles teach even more coding concepts with visual cues.
