Fun, active and learning toy but a bit complicated

I really like this toy! Former teacher of computer skills grades K-8 I'm not sure how much it has to do with "coding" per se, but my son loves to rearrange the pieces to go straight, left and right. It took a while to figure out the noises/soundtrack and to wait after pushing the button for him to start moving. I have not tried the app either but it's good to know it can turn off the soundtrack and error noises if they begin to annoy you. Overall I think it's a fun toy and even my younger toddler enjoys scooting around the floor to follow the caterpillar around. For the price, I'd look for a used one at once upon a child or eBay before paying $50.
