Bits Box Review

July 16, 2018

Monday’s in our house during the summertime are spent re-cooperating from our busy-filled weekends.  I keep Monday’s low-key, and I really like it that way.  The kids watch a movie, do a craft, and keep busy with quiet activities, such as Bits Box .

Bits Box is a subscription box that offers kids a hip fun way to learn; while discovering the ever popular world of coding. If your child(ren) finds interest in challenges, and loves science mixed with computer technology, then this is a must have for your home.

Bits Box introduces a learning system that teaches kids how to code.  The earlier you introduce them, the easier it becomes to understand. As long as your child(ren) can read and write, they can get started with this coding app.  In our fast paced, high-tech growing world,  I see this as a huge benefit to our kids.  I love that it feels like a “game”, but is packed with education, while encouraging challenging the mind.

The subscription box comes with everything you need to get started! Each box offers several different coding card themes with coding directions, and other little fun goodies.  There are a few different options to select from.

Option 1: Basic Bits Box  this box includes app project coding cards that change monthly, in addition to a custom Bits Box trapper keeper binder to store the cards in, along with some fun extras like stickers & tattoos.  This box runs $29.95/monthly with FREE shipping to all US customers.

Option 2: Deluxe Bits Box this box includes app project coding cards that change monthly, a custom Bits Box trapper keeper binder to store the cards in, collectible trading cards, as well as fun extras such as – stickers, tattoos, and toy.  This box runs $44.95/monthly with FREE shipping to all US customers.

Option 3: Digital Bits Box  This offers the same app project as the box subscriptions, but the content arrives via email instead.  You can easily and conveniently  print the app project coding cards out, or work on screen.  This option is great for those who don’t want waste, while being the most eco-friendly.  Great  for customers outside the U.S. (no expensive shipping!) This runs $19.95/monthly.

My daughter who is 10, has loved playing around with this.  The cards encourage your child to change the provided codes, and have them create their own instead.  Change the background, sounds, and characters. The options are endless, and provide hours of fun while learning.

      These kinds of activities are such a life saver for summer break! Our future is definitely moving into the smart technology stages. Although, coding has been around for ages, just in many different forms. So intriguing to me!

    What a neat way to encourage kids to learn computer programming. Definitely could become a great career, if not, it would be a fun hobby.

    All of my kids have been showing an interest in coding and I’ve been letting them learn from a site I learned from. This sounds like such an easier way to learn to code.
