My son has had his Kano for over two years now, and it is still in use. One of the best products/"toys" he has. This is not something your child will play with for a week and then you will never see it again. He has learned so much about coding and computers. He is able to manipulate Minecraft in so many ways. I'm talking Minecraft- one of the top games kids play across the planet!! He is able to create art and apps. Kano World constantly has new challenges for kids to extend their programming skills, and their online world is an extremely safe place for kids to "hang out" with others who enjoy Kano and all of the capabilities this product brings to young minds. And the kicker...they think they are "playing" - any parent dream!!! The extension kits (build your own screen kit, power up kit, and hopefully more to come-he did get the screen and power up kit last year and loves that too!) keep the excitement going. Well worth the purchase!
Bought one for the kids for summer and they loved it. They really liked the Minecraft coding blocks and the art program.
