My boys (aged 10 and 12) each received a set of Bloxels for Christmas last year. They've both had a heap of fun with it! Despite already being proficient in Scratch and more advanced game design, they really enjoy the instant gratification of making visually different games. When we saw Bloxels on sale I grabbed an extra set as a gift for one of their friends. Highly recommended as an intro to video game making for kids as young as 5 or 6, but still fun for much older kids. We actually have a lot of fun as a family with one of us using the board to make a game character or map level, and then someone else uses the iPad to animate it and change the graphics, and we all take turns passing the board around to add something new.
Great product for any child that is interested in game design. I got this for my 6yo and he has had great fun designing levels and avatars. We all join in as a family making levels and trying get thru them. Great introduction for children interested in coding or game level design.
