I'm Preparing My Children to Be Future Tech Moguls with The Learning Journey's Code & Learn! Space Ship

As a Mom and an Engineer, I am over-the-moon that my son is coding with the trendy Code & Learn! Space Ship. Our children are growing up in a world where technology has more and more influence in our lives. This makes computational thinking important. It's never too early to start So, let me share how I am giving my future little tech mogul a head start!

Let's start with the product description from The Learning Journey website for the Code & Learn! Space Ship (Item no.: 201855):

"Introduce children to basic programming and coding with these fun, light up, infrared remote control playmates. In mode one, use the coding card deck and color grid map to challenge your child to find the right path to a destination by entering directional instructions into the remote control. Hit go and they will know they got to the right place when the cockpit of the ship or antennae of the ladybug light up the color of the mat square they land on. If it matches the card they are correct! Mode two allows your child to “drive” the remote control playmate around for freewheeling fun. A great tool for learning sequencing, directions, problem solving and logic. These products align with the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) standards. Requires three AA batteries (included) and two AAA batteries (not included).
Ages 5+ years."
Their YouTube video gives a really nice overview here:

This set is an amazing amount of fun. My son understands colors and shapes, so this is a blast for him.  He's not perfect at it yet which is great because that means that he is learning.  It's fun to see him so curious and engaged. I think that the little alien design was genius for younger kids.  It looks adorable and makes fun noises to add to their interests.

Finally, let me add this this toy has provided hours and hours of fun.  That's one of my main criterion for toys - I want them to entertain my children for many hours. This toy achieved this goal! It was fun, educational, and extremely engaging!
