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.”
