Kubo Educational RobotAges: 3+
Shipping: June 2017
Kubo is an educational robot that accelerates learning in coding, mathematics, language, and music through its TagTile programming language, which helps pre-school and primary school children explore and understand new concepts in a screen-free environment.
The TagTile programming language consists of puzzle pieces that offer different directions for Kubo to follow. Users connect the puzzle pieces any way they want, and Kubo then drives along the tiles to read the directions. Kubo then acts out that sequence when it’s placed on the “play” tile. Watch the video below to see the process play out. Kids won’t be able to build Boston Dynamics ATLAS robot after playing with Kubo, but they will be introduced to programming concepts like loops, functions, routines, subroutines, and more.
