Inspire Curiosity, Creativity and Innovation With the Sphero SPRK+

Creative play is something I strongly encourage with every child not just my own, so when I was able to get a Sphero SPRK+ I was really intrigued. I had never heard of these devices before and it sparked my interest. When I told Jayden we had it coming he got really excited.

This year Jayden joined the Robotics club at school. He does it twice a week, and he’s really excited about it. He has one of these in his robotics club he told me, so he was able to share some insight with us as we were totally clueless about the whole thing. The Sphero SPRK+ is a robot designed to let kids play but also learn while they go.

Although I still have no idea how to go about using it. Jayden and dad have been having a lot of fun with it.

  1. That is so cool! I think I might actually be able to get my kids excited about learning with this little doodad. I’ll have to get a coupe of these for Christmas.

  2. What a great little gadget! I don’t have kids but it sounds so fun that I want one for myself. I don’t have any programming skills so maybe I can learn from it too :-)

  3. I love anything that allows kids explore their imagination and be creative. I don’t know if this is available in the Best Buy (US). However, I will check it out.

  4. Sphero SPRK+ looks like a fantastic gift idea. It is so important to encourage our kids to be creative and learn new things.

  5. My youngest was just explaining something like this to me. I wonder if it’s the same thing. I like that it’s something different!

  6. I do always love anything that is creative to make sure it helps my kids to grow up in a much better way. Sphero SPRK sounds like a wonderful gadget that kids would fall in love right away and this could be a great gift for Christmas as well!
