Another great gadget is called Wowee COJI. It teaches kids how to code with emojis and a tablet. It's the new coding robot pal where STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) come together to teach children basic programming skills using the “language” of visual emojis. Kids will have fun testing their problem-solving skills and playing games with their new robot friend. They use the free app on any smart device to control COJI’s actions. As you'll see in the video, Bluetooth is used to send a child's commands to COJI to follow. COJI also reacts to physical stimulation such as tilting and shaking. He comes with an LCD screen, dynamic sounds and thousands of animations. It’s coding and learning fun with a smile(y)! MSRP $59.99 It's for kids 6 & up, although in the video we shot the spokesperson person says kids 3 & 4 can enjoy the basic commands.
