Parents Choice Award
KIBO has been named a GOLD winner of the 2017 Parents’ Choice Award® in the Toy category. The Parents’ Choice Gold Award recognizes the “highest-quality, most appealing products in their genre” and recognized KIBO as a fun, imaginative and easy way for young children to learn 21st century STEAM concepts.
The Parents’ Choice Awards’ reviewer, Sharon Heuscher affirms, “Children simply connect the blocks in the desired sequence, scan the sequence with the [robot] base’s infrared sensor, and off the robot goes. This is a simple, hands-on, and multi-modal way for children to learn the basics of coding: sequencing, analytic thinking, problem-solving, and more.” She continues, “It’s all hands-on. And that’s playful learning at its best.”
2017 Tech Edvocate Awards
The 2017 Edvocate Awards honors educational innovations that transform the way people learn and how educators teach. KIBO was selected as a finalist in the Best Early Childhood Education App or Tool Category. The finalists and winners were selected by a panel comprised of two edtech thought leaders, two PreK-12 teachers, one college professor, two K-12 administrators, one college administrator and two PreK-12 parents.
Tutora Educational Awards 2017
Tutora honored KIBO as one of the best educational products of the year. “This is the perfect kit for children who love art and creativity. Not only do you get to learn programming, you also get to build and decorate your robot.
With no need to use any apps or websites to code your robot, this is also a great kit for parents who like to keep their kids screen time at a minimum. Programming is done with the amazing programming blocks and helps kids learn all the concepts of coding and creating sequences.“
