Build with Bitsbox

    Kids ages six to fourteen will love building with Bitsbox. It’s not like lego building though, its virtual building. For example, the first app my son and I tried was called Doggleheads. We built an app with dogs, and then you can change the heads and bodies to mix them up, and make them dance. It’s super fun, and great quality time with my son. He loves it and so do I.

Learning is fun

    I think as a mom, the best part to me is that my son is having a blast, but he’s learning at the same time. Think of it like an introduction to programming for kids. While they’re having fun, they’re also learning skills that they can carry with them as they grow up. You can’t beat a gift like that.

How it works

    Okay, so you have your first Bitsbox, (or its on its way) and you’re ready to get started. On your laptop, take your children to the Bitsbox website. Have them look through the material in their Bitsbox, and pick the app they want to start with. Then, enter the code into the virtual tablet on Bitsbox. Then create your app. Your kids can share them on a mobile device!
