Build your code with Robot Turtles Board Game (The game for Little Programmers!)


 “WEMAKE7 was not compensated for this post. We did however receive a Robot Turtles Board Game  for free to review. All opinions are our own.”

All my kiddos love games and board games are on the top of their favorites. We currently own a few ThinkFun games and were excited to review Robot Turtles, the game for little programmers.


Product Description:

Robot Turtles (Ages 4 and up, MSRP: $25.00)
Invented by Dan Shapiro comes the most backed board game in Kickstarter history sneakily teaches preschoolers the fundamentals of programming, from coding to functions, while making silly turtle noises! Takes seconds to learn, minutes to play and provides endless learning opportunities. Before you know it, your little one will be writing computer games rather than just playing them!


Our youngest is too young to play this particular game so my older kids played. Set up was very easy. It does mention in the booklet since an adult plays as well that it’s a good idea to go over everything before starting. The adult player acts as the computer moving the pieces on the board for the kiddos when they choose their cards they want to use. What I thought was cute about this game was the fact when the pieces get moved the adult player is to make turtle noises. The kids loved that!

Another great part of this game that I think is great is that it is not a competition, everyone wins by getting to their jewel. It’s also a great game for learning. The kids really enjoy this game and have played it a lot since we have gotten it.

  • Kath Rivera

    It’s my first time to see a board game like this. I’m sure this is an exciting game. My son will love this if ever we have this kind of board game here.

  • Maria Oller

    I love the fact an adult is needed as a computer yet the kid are the ones who play. My babes are teenagers now but when they were little playing board games where how they learned math and grammar

  • John Kenneth Acibedo

    Good for kids they will have fun and learn good things while playing games.

  • R U S S

    I still play board games! Haha. I encourage my little cousins to play board games ( over apps ) because it’s good to play face-to-face with family or fellow kids.

  • Erin S.

    This looks like a really cool game!

  • Jessica Peeling

    Sounds like a really interesting concept — I will have to share this with my mom, who helps teach this age group. I never thought of kids being able to learn coding and programming.. but why not? Start them off early!

  • IntensePolishTherapy

    Great post! I can’t wait till my children are old enough to play board games!

  • Lady Lilith

    This game was a lot of fun. My girls have also enjoyed playing it. I love games where kids can play and learn at the same time.

  • Charity L.

    Now that looks like fun! I am sure some of the kids would love to play it.

  • Risa

    Interesting game and concept. I remember in school when we used to play a game on the really old Apple computers and I think it was called turtle. You had to enter code to get your turtle to go where you wanted.

  • Michelle F.

    That looks like such a fun game. I think my daughter would love it.

  • Melissa Smith

    This sounds like a really interesting game that all of my kids would enjoy. Especially my 8 yr old since she’s currently obsessed with turtles.

  • Kungphoo

    Sounds like a fun game for the kids.. and they do not even know they are learning!

  • Holli @ It’s An Ordinary Blog

    Looks like a fun game! 🙂

  • Dawn

    This is an absolutely great idea! Programming and coding is so hard (at least for me). I think I should get this game for myself!

  • Geanine

    We love game night, and this looks like one we will have to add to our list of family fun games. Thanks for sharing.

  • Dawn @ Pin-n-Tell

    How fun! This is such a fun and educational game that the kids will love. Especially with all the hype of the up and coming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie 🙂
