STEM education has become an essential part of the curriculum for young minds, which is seeing new product developments like the Sphero Mini robotic ball toy be released. The toy is packed with the same technology that is found in the brand's other creations yet features a compact design and a very affordable price point.

The Sphero Mini has a size that's about as small as a ping-pong ball that can be controlled via the Sphero Edu app that is programmable using basic JavaScript. This gets kids involved in programming without having to take any extensive lessons to ensure it's suitable for kids of all experience levels. The toy comes with a few mini accessories to get kids or adults started playing with it right out of the box.
