Company too lazy to make content/tutorials

First of all, I love the idea of building projects with my daughter. Problem is, these kits they sell have a limited amount of projects included and then they lean on other kids to create projects FOR THEM for free. Most of what’s found are basically show-off projects with NO direction.
Littlebits answer to this is “just create stuff...by buying more kits!” And again just a few small projects.
This company really needs to hire some real project tutorial makers without pushing it back to other kids to create content for them. It’s not working. Now I have 3 kits collecting dust because my daughter, and peoples other kids I’ve tried to give them away to, don’t want them. Just more junk for the landfill.
Littlebits - a word of advice. Kids need direction in these kits. When a FEW get older, then they create their own stuff - but only a few. You can’t expect ALL kids to “just create” after 3, 4 or 12 projects. You obviously don’t have kids and are designing for yourself.

Wow

Well I'm glad I decided to do my homework on the product I was really excited when I saw this I almost just got it with out looking into it. I am happy I did and will be waiting to see what other companies do in the future I'm sure it won't be long til someone really wants to help out little inventors with something they can use and learn from with out a huge marketing scam.... People who do this and take advantage of children's excitement and wonder over things they won't be able to achieve even if they wanted to because what they’re selling will never actually be what their showing it sold as should be ashamed of themselves terrible people do things like that I will never buy from this company

And In order to write a review I have to rate them at least one star to make my thoughts heard and add to there rating smh

Why are people rating this product at 3/4 stars if all your saying about it is negative I don’t understand

Kids + cloud = NOPE!

You can’t do a single thing in this app without creating an account. That’s a huge red flag for me. The devices our son uses are not even connected to the internet. He did not really get exposed to marketing until after he was 6-7. I consider that one of the best things I have ever done for him. I can see what is going on here... So, no. Just no.

*update* I thought that perhaps I should preview it and give them a chance. It is sometimes a burden to know how predictable people are. They crowd sourced the education out to OTHER KIDS! It promises to give projects based on the bits you own, but all it returns is messy garbage “look what I did” style vanity brag posts that mostly tell the person trying to learn nothing about WHY the bits are doing what they do. So great, we are teaching a generation to assemble things and brag about it. This app is a missed opportunity that really could have added value, but instead they just wanted to use it to make kids jealous of the bits they don’t have... sick. My child will never see it. No big loss it adds very little.

*Update 2*
Lol, worse yet. The “lessons” just seem to be pulled from a web source and have files and links that don’t work from within the app! Let’s frustrate the kids while we’ll try to bilk them.
