My daughter, who is 9, accidentally broke off the usb port off the codebug (who could not see that coming?).
I manage to solder it back on some how (I don't have any smd tools, so that was a small miracle). I'm actually going to get some paste.
I think they should have used a through hole mount for the USB connector or a better mounting strategy. I see the Raspberry PI does look better. I really think that if they are aiming for 7-10 yo, this would be essential even if it added a dollar or two to the cost.
