Customer Reviews

Great beginning to programming!

Daisy the dinosaur is a great intro to programming to pique kids' interests on the subject. My daughter was playing around with Daisy and making the dinosaur do all kinds of things. It made her hungry to learn more. She was only disappointed there were not more options for tricks and it is more of an intro to programming than something that can challenge her long-term. I am taking software engineering courses and although this doesn't expose kids to much language important for programming, it lays the foundation and visually reinforces what the program is doing when tested.

Great idea but limited

I loved Logo back in 80s and Daisy is a very good idea for young kids but there are too few options and I don't see a way to save your programs. In free play mode I would like to be able to repeat a different number of times instead of just 5 and it would be nice to add more objects so Daisy can jump to touch a star for example. Please update and I would be happy to pay more and give 5 stars.

Dancing Daisy is Awesome!

I used this app with a group of second graders who choreographed their own dance using Daisy the Dinosaur app and everyone had a blast! Super fun and learning the basics of coding is especially nice! Thank you for developing this easy drag and drop block coding challenge.
