Meet the Coding Critters™– puppies Ranger & Zip, kitties Scamper & Sneaker, or dinos Rumble & Bumble -your first coding friends! These interactive pets introduce preschoolers to critical thinking, problem-solving, and other STEM skills with the help of fun playsets, storybook coding adventures and two interactive modes! In Play Mode kids can feed, pet, and take care of their new friends. Code-along story challenges help to build skills through imaginative play. Easy to use, Coding Critters are simple enough to use right out of the box and challenging enough to grow with kids’ skills. Kids build their understanding of STEM skills including sequential logic, critical thinking, and problem-solving every time they play.
“My kids were very pleased with the size of the critters, the accessories to further develop their world and the ability to code them so they move and make noise.”
“My kids liked the story of Rumble and Bumble. My daughter would read the story and with a little guidance, following the coding instructions to enact the story scene. My son loved holding Rumble, pressing his nose to make him roar.”
“I am pleased that my children practiced coding by following the storybook. It was fun to see my son process the information learned and found new methods to do the same thing. For instance, there are cardboard paw prints that you place in front of the kids so that they can see the order the commands, guiding them to input commands on Rumble. At first, my son followed the paw prints to help him know what buttons to press. Then he figured out he can just look at the book and follow the commands from there.”
“My son most enjoyed the robotic quality as he liked the feeling that he could use his coding “power” to make the critter move.”
“Great gift for a child interested in imaginative play, coding and animals.”
“This is definitely a great STEM toy.”
