Kodable – Coding for Kids
Award-winning coding curriculum for kids! Kodable is designed to teach computer science to elementary students grades K-5 (Ages 4-11).
LOST IN SPACE
The furry aliens, known as Fuzzes were exploring space when their ship unexpectedly crashed on the maze-covered planet Smeeborg. The naturally curious fuzzes need kids to program them to explore all the colorful Technomazes on the planet’s surface.
Kids learn the fundamentals of every modern programming language in a fun and inviting way. Concepts learned through the Kodable include:
- Sequence/ Order of operations
- Algorithmic operations
- Conditional logic statements
- Variables including Strings, Integers, and Arrays
- Object Oriented Programming
- Classes and Subclasses
KODABLE CURRICULUM (Common Core Aligned)
- Over 40 scripted, grab & go lesson plans
- Complete pacing for each grade
- Over 200 on-screen activities for students
- Roster Upload + Google Classroom Integration
- Homeschool and Parent curriculum available!
WHY CODE WITH KODABLE?
Even before your children can pronounce the word "algorithm" they have an astounding ability to learn how to use them. Today's best programmers fell in love with coding at a young age by experimenting with the concepts taught in Kodable. Understanding computer science empowers your child for the jobs of tomorrow, and expands your child's mind to solve problems today in more intelligent ways. Students also learn incredibly important ‘soft skills’ such as
- Problem solving skills
- Higher level thinking skills
- Collaboration skills
- Communication skills
- Critical thinking skills
Bug fixes and optimizations.
Ratings and Reviews
I really enjoy this game so far! It’s teaching my six year old daughter to use her critical thinking skills, memorization, and all helping her with her directions (up, down, left, right, etc.) she is also using her counting skills a little too, believe it or not! She and I have been playing this since I download this yesterday and we love! My mom even played and she was stumped on the ‘loops’ and my daughter explained to her how to play lol! Keep up the great work and I will be purchasing the full game!!!!
Disappointing cash grab
This learning tool was one of my daughter’s favorites. She had lots of fun collecting all the fuzzes. When she attempted to play it again she was extremely disappointed that all her progress was gone. Now instead of a couple of inexpensive lesson add ons I am confronted with a $60 purchase and that buys me, what, a year of your mediocre content? Infuriating. I’m not sure how you are convincing schools to buy in at that price, but if you somehow still believe you are having “a transformational effect on a child’s life - regardless of race, gender, or even economic background” you are fooling yourself. Disgusting.
Developer Response ,
We're really sorry that you find our content mediocre. We really strive to make the best possible coding experience for kids that we can, and we've obviously failed your daughter in some way. In fact, we switched to this pricing model so that we could continue to support and grow Kodable to be not just the most fun coding tool your daughter uses, but the most fun game, period. We'd really love to hear more about where we've fallen short so that we can improve Kodable in the future. Maybe your daughter has some feedback that could help improve Kodable for the millions of kids around the world that use us today. Please email our founder, Jon, directly at email@example.com, no need to go through a support system :)
Crashes ALL the time
1) after several months and several updates to the app, it continues to crash All The Time. The kids just yell out “Kodables crashed again” and restart, usually having lost some of their work. There is usually 5 minutes or so between crashes.
2) The app is very limited as to content. Both kids quickly finished all the puzzle levels, and there is nothing left to do but play the games (of dubious learning value). Please add more real content!
I got this for my six-year-old. He got to the Asteroid level where he was changing parameters in games. The app crashes every time while he is working on a new game. It has also crashed playing bug world. Nice concept, but kids are not very tolerant of seeing their work disappear in a crash.

Hi Prefrontal Cortex,
It looks like you posted a similar review a little over a week ago which we replied to, but I don't think we were ever able to connect via our support channel at firstname.lastname@example.org? It sounds like something strange is going on with your child's profile, since we haven't been seeing the types of crashes you're describing. This is definitely not OK and we want to make things right, but we're limited in how much support we can offer via the App Store. Could you please email our CEO directly at email@example.com so he can expedite a fix for you?
