If you’re like me and you always leave your Christmas shopping to the last minute, The Root could be the answer to your yuletide headaches…

Available from Amazon for $179, The Root is a robot with an educational twist. The Root teaches children coding, creativity and problem solving skills, from pre-readers to high school. It can even give any budding musicians in the family to chance to create music compositions.

That’s not all either. The Root can be used to create and play games, and different coding projects can be shared with fellow users worldwide. Pretty cool.

What we like most about The Root is the way the robot grows and adapts as children get older.

Give it a whirl and let us know what you think!
