Artie 3000 The Coding Robot is on the must have Christmas 2019.
list. Artie is a very cute robot designed to teach children age 7 plus coding skills. It combines coding and creativity to engage the user. STEM has become a large part of the education system. For Christmas 2016 I gave my Granddaughters the Osmo Genius Kit Gaming System for iPad. They loved it and it turned out it was being used in their classrooms to teach coding. Artie 3000 The Coding Robot provides a valuable tool for the classroom.

Artie features easy setup where kids can code using drag & drop, remote control, point & Click, Blockly, snap!, Python and JavaScript.
Because Artie has a built-in Wi-Fi no Internet connection is needed. A tablet, computer, or phone allows control. As each Artie has a unique Wi-Fi multiple units can be used at the same time. Perfect for classrooms.
American Mensa named Artie 3000 an Honorary Mensa member and partnered with Educational Insights to create coding activities and programs that spark curiosity in coding for kids of all learning levels.

What Others Are Saying About Artie 3000 The Coding Robot

Current users of Artie 3000 The Coding Robot are quite enthusiastic about this very cute robot. Here are a few of their comments:

I tinkered with this before I unveiled it to my kids. Its got a lot of capabilities. The simulator is very helpful deciding how to adjust your drawing. Connecting is not difficult, sometimes you have to refresh but its really simple and reliable once you are connected.
The kids like to make the pre-coded shapes or just let him run for fun. Not a lot of direction. I would say the age should be at least 10+ not 7. Kids can make it work. If you don;t watch them they will drive it right off the paper and all over the table/floor.

I work at a software company and some of our products are written in Java scripting. I haven’t gone deep into the coding part but from what I saw is it is legitimate coding. My kids are not ready for that (oldest is 9).
My hang ups is its kinda cumbersome to switch the markers and the instructions say if you have problems replace the batteries. That is true but you must have very new STRONG batteries. I hope rechargeable work.
**Update** Rechargeable batteries do help and holding or taping the corners of the paper help keep the lines straight.

My father became a computer programmer in the early 80s, so I’ve been around computers since I could remember – when I told him about this little robot he was skeptical but intrigued. I had him help my children (ages 10, 8, 5 and 4) set it up and go, and we were ALL impressed.

First, Artie is adorable; not necessary for function, but definitely worth a mention. Setup is a breeze, and although we didn’t need it I later saw the quick setup video tutorial which easily shows the steps so much that my 8 year old could have gotten it up and running. Truly the most difficult part was unscrewing the battery compartment, which wasn’t too bad. I also really appreciate that although he comes with a few felt tip markers we can use almost any without worrying about stocking up on specialized markers or hoping that they don’t discontinue the product and subsequently the accessories. This has happened more times than I can count and I truly appreciate the flexibility.

The user interface is simple but backed by powerful commands when you see what Artie is capable of executing. All 4 of my children have loved having this as an addition to our educational toys, and I’m an artist so I love having the combination of coding with creativity. It was amazing to see how much my older daughters already new from their schools STEM and Maker Space activities, and how quickly my younger children adapted to the coding principles.

We absolutely LOVE this little guy, he’s a welcomed addition to our family computer and homework area, ready to go whenever we are ready to experiment.

I got this for my 10 yr old daughter who has never attempted coding before. This is a great toy for beginners. For starters it’s extremely easy to set up and once connected to the computer the Artie UI is extremely easy to use.
I love how simple the drop down menus are making it easy for her to try and navigate it on her own. She can either use the preset options or put in her own.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to help give their kids a head start in the programming department.

This thing is so cool!! I think my nephew are going to have a lot of fun with this robot. I love that it combines art with code to use both the left side (problem solving and math) and right side (art and design) of their brains!

I just started with one of the initial projects for drawing a maze. The introduction to coding a procedure is very valuable to someone starting out. I do wish it would have the same sample projects in all the supported languages. The simulate option was useful, so I could see what would happen before I sent it to Artie. Artie is easy to setup and start, it took 10 minutes from the package to the maze in the drawing.

I think the nephews and nieces are going to have fun learning to code with this and I will enjoy showing them and watching them develop the necessary skills for STEM based careers later in life.

 Kids were very excited (9 &12). Had a lot of trouble setting up to WiFi but believe it’s our desktop(old Mac)We finally got it to connect to laptop(newer Mac). Definitely need to practice with it… where to place him on page etc. Kids found the coding a little difficult (but I do not think it is too challenging… just need to play around with it more)
