Play-I : Bo & Yana

Bo Yana toys and game learning code for kids review

Description 

Play-I looks to be an amazing re programmable toy with lots of potential, I believe  any child would love to have a play and learn with Play-i . If i had very young children i would be adding this to the Xmas list.

We founded Play-i almost a year ago with one mission: to make programming fun and accessible for every child. It has been an exciting journey as Bo & Yana came to life, thanks to the input and help from hundreds of children and parents who played with our robots at different stages of development.!”
