Vex go - best stem kit for kids

I’ve tried checking some kits that would be best for kids these days and VEX robots are one of those. I’ve tried searching over the internet and I’ve seen this cool blog about VEX GO that made me interested in it. I saw it in this site: http://stemkitreview.com/the-10-best-stem-kits-for-kids-jan2021/
I’ve found out here that VEX GO can be programmed using VEXcode blocks powered by Scratch blocks. Can you tell me more about it? I only have very limited information about it.

Thank you! Very useful. Will I be able to get parts separately in case I lost some or break them for some reason?

There are some replacement packs available with various subsets of the parts in the go kit.

You could also buy IQ parts and use them with your GO kits - IQ and GO parts are compatible (and many of the parts are exactly the same), although the pins/corner connectors/standoffs/etc. in the GO kits have a lower “clutch power” to make them easier for younger kids to disassemble.

Oh awesome! I’ll give that a try then. I’ve got some IQ parts but I haven’t bought GO yet still confirming things before I do. Thanks for your reply!
