Long-time-reader-but-never-commenter here. My 4 year old is obsessed with robots and we've been building kits lately. I've not taken the leap into programmables but am curious which system this is.

Becky - My son too! He has been interested for ages. He has built some of the smaller robots - voice command, follow the line, etc. This is his first programmable. It is a Lego Mindstorms kit - we just got it not long ago (he's turning 7, and has seemed ready to get deeper into programming, etc.). He is interested in the Lego League (http://www.firstlegoleague.org/) and hopes to join a group as he gets more into it. He is doing the builds, programming light/color/touch/motion tests, and doing well with the software. Totally his thing! :)
