Kano Coding Kits

Review date: 11/02/2020

Is magic strong with you and your kids? With a wave of their hands, your kids can enter the magic world of Harry Potter, Frozen, or find the Force from Star Wars within themselves. This kit teaches kids how to code with step-by-step challenges. Complete one to open up others. Then share your creations online in Kano's community of young coders. Hermione, Elsa and BB-8 approve.

What could happen if something goes wrong

We've long been fans of Kano's coding kits. They seem to take a strong stance of privacy and security. So, what could go wrong? Not a whole lot really. Kids—big and small—could learn to code while piloting the Millennium Falcon through an asteroid field. Nothing wrong with that!
