Review : Lego Mindstorms Robot

This LEGO 8547 Mindstorms NXT 2.0 Robot is the reason that Toby wants a robot so much. He has seen this in the Lego shop and cannot forget it. We have not bought one, as they are too expensive at the moment but it would be fantastic to get him one.

At the Cheltenham Science Festival in 2011, the Lego Education stand had lots of computers with Lego animals and minifigures attached to them to show children programming. You could make the  Lego figures that were attached to the computer move or make noises and it was all very expensive.

The Lego Education items are more expensive than their other ranges but they really are a great combination of computers programming and engineering and so a fantastic tool for any child who likes this sort of thing (as well as any parent!)
