What is KIBO?

KIBO is the screen-free robot kit for kids that lets 4- to 7-year-olds create, design, decorate and bring their own robot to life! KIBO is an easy and fun way to bring robotics and coding to your young learners and spark their interest in STEAM.

  • When children code with KIBO they are learning invaluable skills that will lead them on the path for success in science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics (STEAM) skills and future careers. As they learn all these skills, they will think it is just play!
  • Based on 20 years of early child development research, this hands-on educational robot engages young students to learn STEAM concepts through play and creative self-expression.
  • STEAM learning with KIBO is fun, imaginative and easy. Your youngest learners will playfully discover these concepts by coding with wooden building blocks, creating sequences, and learning design processes.
  • Used in 55 countries and tested and approved by thousands of children and their caregivers, KIBO has proven efficacy in helping kids learn STEAM, and getting them excited about it!
 

Imagine and Create with KIBO

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 serves as an open platform designed for kids to imagine and create their own robot. Just turn it upside down. See the circuitry? Kids can visibly see that this is the KIBO “brain” and not magic. Just add the wheels with the motors and your KIBO is on the move!

KIBO 21 Robot Kit –  21 Programming Blocks

KIBO is a robot kit specifically designed for young children ages 4-7 years. It is different from any other kit out there because it appeals to both technically minded kids and those that connect more to arts and culture or physical activity. Young children learn by doing. Children build their own robot with KIBO, program it to do what they want, and decorate it. KIBO gives children 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. 

 

You get to see all that there is in KIBO 18 Kit, but you also get a new expression module and a sound record/playback module.

As teachers, we get used to the teaching materials and style. So it becomes second nature to teach our kids in a specific way with a unique mindset. However, as we are progressing into a new era of technology we must realize to adapt to the much-needed change.

If we want our kids to become smarter and keep up with the modern trends, then we must adapt to robotics. KIBO is a perfect example of such a robotics toy that help kids from age 4 -7 to play with it in a safe and smooth learning environment, enabling them to increase their mental capacity and confidence.

 

Teachers – Get ready for an amazing experience with kids.

Repeat blocks, conditional and nesting statements are concepts a kid can learn, grasp and master over time. So KIBO is based on these concepts that help build a higher level of programming concept understanding in kids.

The kit comes up with a detailed guide and an updated lesson plan as well.

  • KIBO Activity Center - proudly made for teachers by teachers
  • Perfect fit for kids between 4 to 7 years of age.
  • Smart introduction to robotics and computing at an early age.

    STEAM Approach


    STEAM is a simple but a unique learning approach that helps kid to learn much faster and retain for much longer time period. STEAM is research proven to help kids with their learning cycle. It stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as the primary learning points for kids to explore their mindset.

     

    KIBO uses the power of STEAM

    What was once a dream is now a reality! We all want our kids to learn in safe and healthy environment. But that’s not just about it, more than everything we want our kids to experience the modern ways of learning to be able to understand, grasp and relate to interesting ideas.

    After years into research, Kinder Labs has finally introduced KIBO. It’s a perfectly safe robot toy for kids to learn in an amazing intuitive way. The robot engages kids, helps them in increasing their questioning and reasoning power. Kids get to learn more about input and outputs. And it’s a perfect way to introduce kids to robotics which is the future of modern programming.

    KIBO 21 is an ideal gift for kids aged between 4 – 10 years old (key audience: 4 to 7 years of age).

     

    KIBO Kit Details



    KIBO 21 robot kit contains 21 programming blocks, 12 parameter cards, 3 motors, 2 wheels, 3 sensor modules (light, sound and distance), 1 lightbulb module, 1 Expression module, 1 Sound Record and Playback Module, a stage art platform, and a rotating art stage (perfect for making ballerinas, helicopters, carousels, etc).

     

    How KIBO works?

    KIBO has a built-in scanner known as an embedded scanner that can scan any programming block. Upon scanning the programming block, the block sends back the commands it has to the robot. That’s how the overall system works in coherence with each other. So the robot could be considered as the hardware and programming blocks as the software behind it.

     

    American Academy of Pediatrics Recommends the Same


    American Academy of Pediatrics recommends to save kids from longer screen time at the age of 4 -7 because they are more prone to hurting their eyes. We take the health of kids seriously and keep our KIBO kit in alignment with the recommendation. Therefore, we do not introduce tablet or touch screen versions of the same.
