To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
My 4yo was so elated to receive Botley for Xmas but it all fall flat. Initially even I was excited with all the promises of how it works. Physically item seems to be of good quality but it’s programming is faulty - forward movement only 1 wheel moved, I thought the wheel is damaged but backwards movement both wheels are ok. The sensor is not 6ft distance, more like 6cm. Even when Botley detect the black line & says ‘ah-ha’, it doesn’t move at all. It was totally disappointing especially after l spent much time reading up on all the reviews & it seems reliable. Worse, having to take the Xmas gift away fm a 4yo. Although Amazon is understanding to why I need to return the item but for weeks, their courier didn’t pick it up which was a hassle (needed to contact them again and again to check when they are collecting ) as they had indicated to be collected within 24 hours. Refund is not immediate after their collection, i needed to follow up weeks after their collection on my refund.
I purchased Botley for my daughter for Xmas ; it worked well the first day and we had fun, but after the second day the coding instructions input via the remote can't be transmitted to Botley. The batteries are brand new and the robot is on but does can't receive any instruction. I have contacted learning resource customer service but no feedback so far...
The video on the Amazon page for this item (LER2941) shows the robot following black lines on cards laid on the floor. No such cards were provided. This is misleading. The cards should not be shown on the video if they are not part of the product.
Bought it for my nephew, and it didn't even start. Any batteries I put into it were simply heating up. Dangerous for kids. Because of COVID, my trip got delayed and hence refund date is also past. Now my money is gone - thanks Amazon!
Sorry, aber das Produkt fällt im Test von vornherein durch, da die deutsche Anleitung im Vergleich zur englischen abgespeckt und halbiert wurde?!? Nicht jeder ist der englischen Sprache mächtig und Produkte, die in Deutschland auf den Markt kommen, die sollten vereinheitlicht und harmonisiert sein. Hier wurde der Rotstift leider am falschen Ende angesetzt.
We bought this as a birthday present for our son who was very excited when he opened the box, but it was completely defective. Followed the instructions to the “t” but it wouldn’t move. Emailed the manufacturer and they didn’t give any troubleshooting, just told us to return it. Meanwhile, we have a very disappointed son!
Didn’t work on any setting right out the box. Will try again with a replacement. Thankfully 5 yr old son wasn’t as disappointed as Santa was that it didn’t work. He is looking forward to the elves fixing it.
