Why KIBO?

Why choose KIBO over other coding robots? Unlike programming robot kits that rely on laptops, tablets, and the internet, KIBO helps you make authentic connections with children in an entertaining and creative way offline.

Creative Play

Creative Play

Dream it. Build it. Decorate it. Code it. Playing with KIBO is letting creativity soar to new heights.

Problem Solving

Problem Solving

KIBO continues to build on the basics of coding and leads to understanding of sequential thought, cause and effect, and trial and error - all while having fun.

Critical Thinking

Critical Thinking

Step by step, children explore, discover, learn, and achieve. They make mistakes and then make it right. It’s all about progress, accomplishing a desired outcome, and all-around fun!

Versatility

Versatility

Lights. Camera. Action. With so many sensory and adaptive learning opportunities there’s never a dull moment with KIBO. Children from 4 years to 5th grade take advantage of adventures with KIBO and KIBO extension sets.

Based On Research

Based on 20+ years of research by leading early childhood development researcher, Dr. Marina Bers, KIBO is the ultimate “sneaky learning” STEAM robot that affords hours of activities and creativity for more meaningful play and learning.

KIBO Kids are independent critical thinkers that draw their own conclusions, go through the steps of the engineering design process, and learn to communicate and collaborate – leading to greater achievement and self-esteem.

And let's not forget... KIBO IS FUN!

Best of all, KIBO is experiential learning through play. It is this generation’s playdough, Mr. Potato Head, and tinker toys, all rolled into one. KIBO can be a game, an art project, a science experiment, a geography lesson, and even an interactive storyteller.

There are endless ways to make KIBO a teaching assistant and a young child’s best friend.
