Arcade Coder

September 16, 2019



(Tech Will Save Us $96 on Kickstarter; $159 thereafter)


We’ve seen a slew of coding toys this season and many of them involve robots that will appeal to younger techies. This is quite a departure. Although it looks like a futuristic light peg board, it's really a platform for learning how to code, working with an iOS app. Kids learn to program games using guided lessons.  Several games come pre configured, but can be customized as kids learn the interface and how to make changes. After that introduction kids progress to building their own games.  Arcade Coder makes a good parent child activity with many opportunities to connect with kids in playful but problem-solving ways. Labeled for 6+, we suggest this is a much better choice for 10+.
