As a mom who is obsessed with technology, robotics and how they are all evolving, I had to check out the Sphero SPRK+, we had an older version a few years ago which seems to have gone missing and I loved it so I was super excited to try out the latest version!
I’m also a huge believer in STEM learning and the core skills that can be taught to both kids and adults.
STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math and STEM products encourage kids to develop core skills in these areas. Best Buy carries products from basic learning games to advanced toys designed to stimulate a child’s mind in the STEM areas, helping to develop logic and problem solving skills.
The Sphero SPRK+ is super easy to use, you place it on it’s charger, give it some life then connect through the Sphero app on your phone. Once it’s connected you can program your Sphero to do different things like changing colors and following a specific route. There was also some special tape included with our Sphero that goes great with the app and you can program it to make a path.
The Sphero SPRK+ is designed to inspire curiosity, creativity and bring your inventive side out through connected play and coding. It’s much more than just your regular robot and you will be amazed at all the different tricks and features it has to offer. The lightning lab app lets you easily learn how to program, complete hands on activities and when you’re done you can share all of your cool creations!
The SPRK+ makes a great toy, it can be used at home or outdoors, but aside from it being a toy, it’s also a great learning experience and another way to learn classroom type learning from home or wherever you can imagine! There are a ton of fun learning experiences to be had with Sphero, it can swim across water, become a magic 8 ball, be programmed to paint a picture and lots more, it provides endless hours of fun and learning.

There are SO many fun and educational things to do with the Sphero SPRK+ and now that the kids are out of school for summer, pick one up and take learning on the go! Sphero SPK+ is recommended for ages 8+ and retails for $129.99.
