Description

The award-winning virtual world called The Foos teaches the ABC’s of computer science through a combination of structured challenges and creative play. Characters and gameplay are carefully crafted to be gender neutral. The “no words" interface has allowed kids as young as 4 years old in over 140 countries to play.

Review Highlights:

What an incredible learn-to-code game! It's easy to start, intuitive, cleverly designed and the functionality without the use of words is genius. The concept of programming is quickly imparted. It's exploratory learning and creative play at it's finest.

Join the Foos in downtown Fooville and immerse yourself in a cartoon land of coding! Just drag the icon blocks to instruct the foo to move. A hand icon guides students to the icons they need to start each procedure. It's so simple and brilliant! Accumulate enough stars and you unlock levels where the coins that you've picked up along the way can be traded in for more characters. It's a fabulous way to teach a seemingly difficult subject such as programming at a very young age.

The puzzles and the programming are very easy to learn. I was surprised that my four year old was so enthralled and figured out how to play after watching his older brother.

Loved the glitch monster!
