Overview

Meet the Coding Critters: your first coding friends! These playful puppy pets bring early STEM concepts to preschool learning through 100% screen-free coding. Kids code along with their new pets’ storybook adventure, and help the brave Ranger and mischievous Zip have a playtime they'll never forget! Each storybook coding challenge unfolds in the Coding Critters' fun pet playset - can you code Ranger to play hide and seek, fetch a ball from the tennis ball launcher, or catch Zip after a ride down the slide? In addition to following along with the storybook's coding challenges, you can also use the pet playset to design your own code games and more! The Coding Critters also double as cute interactive pets - press Ranger's nose to activate Play Mode, where you can feed, pet, and take care of your new puppy robot pal! You can even make him dance and sing a silly song!
