KinderLab Robotics presents KIBO, a robot kit specifically designed for young children aged 4-7 years old. With KIBO, children build, program, decorate and bring their own robot to life! STEAM learning with KIBO is fun, imaginative and easy. The youngest learners will playfully discover these concepts by coding with wooden building blocks, creating sequences, and learning design processes.

Designed for open-ended play, KIBO lets your kids make almost anything – a character from a story, a carousel, a dancer, a race helicopter – anything that they can think of. The child creates a sequence of instructions (a program) using the wooden KIBO blocks. They scan the blocks with the KIBO body to tell the robot what to do. They press the button and the robot comes alive.

Young children learn by doing. KIBO gives your kids the chance to make their ideas physical and tangible—exactly what their young minds and bodies need. And KIBO does all this without requiring screen time from PCs, tablets or smartphones.

KIBO is available in 4 different robot kits ($229, $359, $399 and $499). KIBO is available in various Classroom Packages, which includes curriculum materials. Other items available on the website include a la carte programming blocks and modules, curriculum and teacher materials.
