Want your tiny tots to get ahead in life early? How about starting them off with some coding skills? GoldieBlox, the creative educational toy makers known for their line of engineering toys are out with a new game that will teach kids to code, the fun way with their new app launch GoldieBlox Adventures in Coding.
Goldie is the young engineer heroine of our game and she needs help delivering cupcakes to whole of their Bloxtown neighborhood.
Goldie has a plan. Her Cupcake-o-Matic tool can supply the cupcakes, while the newly invented Super Speedy Rocket Skateboard can help in distribution. However, without some help from her pal Ruby Rails, the scheme will be a flop.
That’s where your kids come in!
By playing the game, kids will learn to code the path the Rocket Skateboard must take around the grocery store to pick up ingredients. Then they need to figure out how to head to the Bloxshop kitchen to scoop up the cupcakes and go to Bloxtown for delivery!
All this is done via coding concepts such as sequential execution, mental modeling of program behavior and if anything goes wrong – debugging. The learning skills get more complicated as the game progresses with trickier maps but the kids can take a short break from their learning by playing mini-games and earning stickers to add to the Bloxshop wall!
