The My First Robot traffic mat provides a fun introduction to traffic education. Have the My First Robot use your program code to drive correctly through the streets, past bus stops, stopping at stop signs and correctly through one-way streets. Only the player who obeys the traffic laws and creates the correct program code the most times wins the game!

The My First Robot traffic mat supports the traffic education of children and playfully teaches the rules of the road. On the 16 fields of the traffic mat is a road course with various traffic signs depicted. The corresponding 16 playing cards each show a field of the mat. Children take turns revealing playing cards that show them the My First Robot's next destination and programming the way to get there using the Tinkerbots Blockly app.
The My First Robot traffic mat allows children to transition from programming with the My First Robot app to the Tinkerbots Blockly app. This makes the traffic mat the perfect add-on for kids who, after programming with the My First Robot app, now want to take it a step further.
The My First Robot traffic mat contains a play mat with 16 fields in the size 66 x 66 cm. Matching the 16 fields, the set contains 16 playing cards with illustrations of the fields.
The mat is made of polyester and is durable, flexible, heat resistant and can be wiped clean with a damp cloth.
Children take turns uncovering one of the playing cards from the deck and try to move the My First Robot to the corresponding square on the mat. This is done using the programming environment of the Tinkerbots Blockly app. If the child manages to move the robot to the square in one attempt, they get to keep the card. If they don't succeed, the card is put back and the next child reveals a new card. Whoever has the most cards at the end wins the game.
By using the Tinkerbots Blockly app, children have the ability to precisely move the My First Robot around the play mat. To do this, it is necessary to delve deeper into Tinkerbots Blockly before playing the first game to gain an understanding of the programming blocks.
Using the traffic mat and accompanying playing cards, children learn to think in a solution-oriented manner. By using the Tinkerbots Blockly app, children are introduced to the next level of kid-friendly programming and the transition to other Tinkerbots products is made easier. Kids grow along with the different programming options and stay interested in programming and robotics longer.
