This article consist an analysis of educational robotics environments for early childhood and first primary education. Firstly generally presented a problematic for the role of these environments in educational contexts for young children and examined the main research in the area. Then it is developed a framework of didactical analysis of two main categories of educational robotics environments: a) building competencies when constructing and robots and b) constructing computational thinking. Finally, based on this framework the most known educational robotics environments are analysed.
