It's For You
The reason to get these is simple, of course: they’re toys that teach.
In other words, they’re the perfect thing for right now if you’ve got a kid stuck at home who needs something to stay occupied… only, you don’t want to just give them the tablet and say “go nuts!” in case they end up downloading some game called Blood Train or something, that, aside from being horribly violent, also farms all your personal information.
These won’t do that. Instead, they will teach your kid coding basics and creative problem solving skills, all with just enough light and magic not to feel like a lesson.
And so, that makes them a great investment not just for now, but for the future.
Are they guaranteed to instill in your kid the sort of know-how and desire to make an app before they finish middle school, sell it, use the money to fund a startup which they in turn sell for billions and retire at the age of 22 to a private island with anything-goes laws in terms both of taxes and big game hunting?
Not necessarily. Your kid might just end up learning a little bit about coding and then eventually become an art teacher or something similarly benign, only with a greater understanding of the technology that drives the world around them.
Which is why this is also a great investment for you. Because, look, you can plan all you want to age into the kind of old person who continues to know the basics about tech stuff, but there’s going to come a time when your Mini Alexa-Orb, suddenly and seemingly for no reason, start speaking backwards.
And when that happens, what are you going to do?
You’re going to call the adult child who gave you the thing in the first place and they’re going to walk you through how to fix it with gritted teeth and false patience, because they possess an innate understanding of these things, having learned the basics from a Juku set at a young age.
Or, if they do pull off the billionaire startup thing, maybe they’ll let you crash at the Scottish castle they bought on a dare.
Either way, it’s a win-win.
