Pittsburgh Better Times: 2019 Holiday Gift Guide
In Pittsburgh Better Times’ 2019 annual Holiday Gift Guide, they share a handy guide for you to find the perfect gift for those on your list. If you’re looking for a gift idea, our annual holiday gift guide features a wide variety of gift ideas in various categories. KIBO is included in the gift ideas for kids.
“Whether you are buying for kids or grandkids, KIBO robot kit is an educational alternative to iPhones or tablets that many young kids are being gifted these days.
The KIBO robot kit, from KinderLab Robotics is a unique robot toy that engages even the youngest children in active STEM/STEAM Learning. With KIBO, 4-7 year olds create, design, decorate and bring their own robot to life.
KIBO kids’ imaginations soar—all without requiring screen time! For the first time ever – KIBO is now available on Amazon.
Designed for open-ended play, KIBO lets kids make almost anything – a character from a story, a carousel, a dancer, a race car – anything the child can think of. They plan a coding sequence using the programmable wooden building blocks, scan their sequence with KIBO, press its button and watch their creation go.
We found KIBO simple to use. The setup took about 10 minutes and provided hours of fun for our 6-year-old daughter. In fact, the instructions were so simple and easy to follow along, that we let her assemble KIBO and just supervised her. It was a welcome respite from the iPad or Netflix and Disney+!
Even if you are unsure of any assembly instructions or how to use KIBO, go to YouTube where KinderLab has several short (under 3-minute) videos on how your kids can use KIBO.
…and your kids are learning to build and code.
When children build, code and decorate their own robot, they are learning invaluable skills that will lead them on the path for success in STEM/STEAM and future careers.
Developed by Dr. Marina Bers after 20 years of child development research at Tufts University, KIBO is used in 54 countries and has been tested and approved by thousands of children and their caregivers.”
