Cyber Monday Giveaway: Sphero SPRK

This contest post will stay at the top of the page from 9:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m. Eastern on Monday, November 30th, 2015. Read on to find out about today’s prize and enter to win!

I saved a prize for today, in the spirit of Cyber Monday, or—as I like to call it—“Geez I am getting tired of all this hype” day. I thought I had a civic duty to make it a little more fun, you see.


Meet Sphero SPRK, quite possibly the most fun way to learn programming hands-on from your phone or tablet. This kit includes your Sphero robot and everything you need to learn to program it yourself. It’s fun for all ages, and if you don’t mention that it’s educational, your kids probably won’t even realize how much they’re learning. (My kids’ high school actually uses these in their Tech classes to learn how to code. They’re truly flexible to all levels and ages.)

Make it roll, make it stop, make it light up different colors, make it respond to various situations, make it make you breakfast. (Disclaimer: I don’t think it can really make you breakfast. No thumbs.) You may find yourself playing with it just as much as the kids.

Want to win it? Of course you do! First, go review the contest rules and regulations, then come on back here and leave a comment on this post today (Monday, November 30th, 2015) by 9:00 p.m. Eastern (that’s 6:00 p.m. Pacific) for a chance to win. The winner will be pulled at random but probably not announced until tomorrow, because now that my family is back they seem to want me to pay attention to them and stuff.

Ready? Go!

  54. My 13 & 16 year old just participated this summer is a coding camp called, it was aimed at bringing coding to inner city school kids.
