With KIBO, 4- to 7-year-olds can build, program, decorate and bring their own screenless robots to life! This educational robot for kids appeals to technically minded early learners, those that connect to arts and culture and those interested in physical activity.
Your youngest learners can become engineers, designers, programmers, artists, and writers – Anything they want to be!
KIBO is available in various Classroom Packages, which includes our STEAM Curriculum Materials. In addition, individual robot kits, programming blocks, and modules can be purchased a la carte for the best early learning development experience.
Fun and Playful STEAM Learning
KIBO can integrate itself into multiple disciplines and school curriculum for early learners including math, science, literacy, music, dance, arts, crafts, storytelling, natural sciences, and even social studies. KIBO can bring to life just about any topic!
Programming without Screens or Keyboards
KIBO lets young kids’ imaginations soar – all without requiring screen time on PCs, tablets, or smartphones. Sound sensors, light bulbs, motors and wheels bring their KIBO robot to life.
Coding is play!
Your youngest learners code with wooden building blocks to create sequences and understand the design process. KIBO looks and behaves differently, every time you code it!
“Some of the children mastered scanning by themselves. I was really impressed! Especially since we had only 4 mornings to work on programming! All of the parents were so impressed, and daily children were heard on more than one occasion saying, “This is the best camp I’ve ever been to!!!” I had lots of great comments from parents, too.”

“Look, look what I did. I made it myself!”
“It is not a robot. It is something that you can program to do what you want. It is much better!”

“My daughter loved it because she and her friends created a puppet show and the puppets sang and danced.”
“I really was scared and skeptical, and then when my son tried it, I was just blown away with how great everything was and the kinds of things he was able to do.”
