Best introduction to computers for kids! 1/6/2020 10:57:56 AM

Pros: * Its a Raspberry Pi built into a kid friendly building kit.
* Brings the kid along from the initial activity that is similar to building legos or other building kit to a computer activity that includes having to connect buttons and lights and things.
* After the kids graduates from the preinstalled software, they can install linux and continue experimenting and building.

Cons: I wonder why it does not come with a keyboard. It seems that the preinstalled software does not need a keyboard but at some point you will want to add a keyboard. No big deal.

Overall Review: Got this for a nephew and liked it so much got two more for nieces. Its not only nice components but its packaged well for kids to build and work with and the pre-installed software leads them through to know what to do. When you first open the box, its a building activity similar to legos or similar but then it morphs into a computer activity. In the end, its a Raspberry Pi with display and interface board so the kid can still use it for many things after the included software has run its course
