I am so excited to be able to review Bitsbox! I have been looking for a different gift for Christmas this year for my grandkids, something they will use all year long and not get bored with. It is an awesome gift and so perfect for your computer kid. Every month features a new project for kids to have fun with.
Let me tell you a little bit about this wonderful company. BITSBOX was invented in 2014 by a pair of Boulder, Colorado-based ex-Google employees named Scott Lininger and Aidan Chopra. They both have kids who would like to learn to code.
Bitsbox teaches kids to code by delivering insanely fun app-building projects in the mail every month. Kids code their projects on the Bitsbox website and their apps work on any device with a web browser. How cool is that?
During our review, we received the Fun Animal House Theme Box. It came with several different Super Cards full of different app challenges. There is a card that shows all the apps included, this is where you can add the provided stickers to keep track of what apps you have completed.
It is PERFECT FOR KIDS AGES 6 TO 12 – No previous coding experience is necessary. Each kit includes a helpful Grownup Guide (Thank You) and unlimited email support, too!
Monthly subscriptions include code lessons and a binder to store them in, a parental guide to that month’s lessons, and stickers and temporary tattoos.
Each box is packed with more than enough projects to last all month long until your next box arrives.
Get started, all you need is a computer with a keyboard (desktop or laptop).
You can then go to the Bitsbox website and pull up the coding screen for your child to begin typing up their apps.
You can even set up a “kids account” so that they can save all of their work to come back to later.
After your child has built an app and customized the code, you can then download it to your phone or tablet and they can use it and play it just like any other app!
Bitsbox is FREE to use online. Kids can try an online activity or build their own app from scratch. But you really should subscribe so they can really start learning to code.
Teaching children to learn to code is an investment in their futures.
- Basic Bitsbox $24.95/month…is the most popular.
- Deluxe Bitsbox $37.95/ month….. includes extra projects and other goodies.
- Digital Bitsbox $16.95/ month…… gives you access to the projects via PDF
(Subscriptions renew automatically but you can cancel at any time.)
If your kids are interested in coding I highly recommend this box, it is an excellent first place to start for young children. It makes a Great Holiday Gift this year!
