Baby Boomers: KIBO – The Playful Robot that Teaches Kids Coding Without Screen Time

Baby Booomers recently reviewed the KIBO robot. About KIBO, they said: “Grandparents, this could be a great gift idea for a grandchild!”

“KIBO is a playful robot that offers young children a fun way to learn coding and building along with storytelling and imaginative play. Designed for kids ages 4–7, KIBO is entirely unplugged and screen-free: no smartphone, tablet, PC, or network connection is needed. Children build onto the robot with art and craft materials, then use wooden blocks to program their creation.

Designed for open-ended play, KIBO lets kids make almost anything they can think of: a character from a story, a carousel, a dancer, a car, a helicopter. After the child creates a sequence of instructions using the wooden programming blocks, they scan the blocks with KIBO’s built-in bar code scanner to tell the robot what to do. Then they simply press the button and the robot comes alive.

KIBO is a safe and robust product that will last years.”
