Genius Starter Kit, Ages 6-10
The next step in the uber-cool Osmo universe, the Genius Starter Kit, includes everything your kids need to experience hands-on STEM learning and digital fun in five different ways. Playing Tangram is a great way to exercise spatial and visual problem-solving skills—start thinking with shapes! Words will have them zooming letter tiles around, spelling creating and having fun, while Numbers will show kids there are multiple ways to solve a problem—making math creative and fun. With Newton, physics meets creative problem-solving as your kid guides falling on-screen balls into targeted zones and avoids a catastrophe! Next, take a picture of anything and Masterpiece will transform it into simple outlines so kids can draw it to perfection. The bottom line with this kit: STEM learning can be creative and fun.

Coding Starter Kit, Ages 5-10
The Coding Starter Kit builds coding skills in an easy-to-learn way, by building in a progression with three hands-on learning games. Watch your kid learn to code (and maybe pick up a thing or two yourself) as they connect colorful blocks of code to chart the adventures with Osmo and friends on their screen. The first step is with Coding Awbie, building problem-solving and logic skills while learning the basic concepts of coding. Is there a DJ in the house?! With Coding Jam, kids arrange coding blocks in patterns and loops to create their own music. The third and most advanced step is Coding Duo, where kids solve advanced side-by-side puzzles on their own or with a friend for double the fun and challenge.
