    "There are not that many programs out there these days to help children learn to code so Lightbot Jr: Coding Puzzles is a really good way to start them off. The nice thing about this is that it is an app so you can just download it on your phone and take it anywhere for your kids to play!"

    "This app is just okay. It works and everything, but I don't see the point of teaching my kids about things of the past, when I'd rather teach them beginners programming and engineering concepts. They love DIY projects, but this is more trivia than anything. I wouldn't recommend it for parents to give to their children as there are more important concepts to be learned."

    "I've been learning to code, recently, and this was one of the resources I looked into. It's actually quite fun, and it teaches the basics and some essentials for anybody to learn how to start coding with. I find that things meant for kids are also great for adults, and this was the case, here. For what it is, if you want to start wading into the coding pool, this is a great way to dip a toe. "
