Hands-on coding adventures. Kids use code to go on an epic, open-ended, strawberry-munching adventure. It's easy! Simply snap together these coding blocks to make on-screen Awbie walk, grab, and jump his way through a magical world.
Real concepts meet real fun Kids learn real programming concepts by linking physical coding blocks into sequences, loops, and 'if/or' actions. They're learning coding fundamentals and having fun at the berry same time.
Play with a purpose Coding Awbie rewards logical thinking and problem-solving with fun stuff like strawberries and pies and new adventures. Sharpening these skills builds confidence and prepares kids for an increasingly digital world.
I purchased this for my son and being a software guy myself, I was really surprised how it made learning coding so easy and fun. There are blocks which you have to use to get Awbie (the character in game) perform tasks like crossing a river, collecting strawberries etc. The higher levels you get the difficulty starts slowly increasing. It's a really fun way to develop logical thinking and I'd recommend to start with this before you get to any actual coding.
I had purchased this as a gift for my nephew and he spends most of his time on the game now. It has very interactive maps of popular cities across the world where the player has to find clues to catch the villain.
The transitions are seamless and the magnifying glass can easily identify the clues at the given location.
The best part is that there is no unwanted screen time anymore because he's learning so much while he's playing.
Excellent way to introduce your kid to coding. The coding environment is presented to the kid as a game and the kid needs to use the tiles to program and solve each challenge. That's so cool. They ensure that the kid is easily introduced to basic coding concepts like conditionals, loops, variables etc.
We purchased this for our children as a fun way to introduce them to creating sequences in a coding format that is both fun and educational. Awbie is a wonderful way of learning the basics of coding skills, starting out with the simplest steps and building to more complex sequences that are more challenging in a non-forceful, non-failure driven way.
The coding pieces are simple, easy to use and attach to each other without being cumbersome. The game itself is enticing and go-at-your-own-pace, so even the most inexperienced players can have an opportunity to learn. Those with skills will enjoy the game as well, and Osmo has several additional coding games for more intermediate levels as well. All in all, this has been a wonderful game for our children to learn sequence, logic and solve simple puzzles.
Coding Awbie is a great introduction to coding for kids! It's fun to watch my daughter guide Awbie through a world with trees, snow, fall colors, etc. Awbie can be silly too and it was fun seeing my daughter laugh throughout the game.
While it's possible to only use one or two coding blocks to beat the levels, I recommend encouraging your kids to use many blocks at once - especially the loop and multiplier ones. While not every kid is going to be a professional coder, I think Coding Awbie really engages kids to think through logic and processes - which is great for any kid - no matter what they want to become or learn. High recommended for learning and fun.
