Excellent way of exploring programming concepts
When I saw how interested my kids were in a programming tool at a local museum's Robots exhibit I looked online for a similar, simple tool for explaining programming. Of the few I looked at CodeMonkey was both immediately available (nothing to download) and also did an excellent job of explaining programming concepts in a series of fun logic puzzles. The creators have done an excellent job in keeping each lesson accessible and building off of the concepts in the previous lessons. The gamification also helps tremendously. Who doesn't like to see three starts? My 9 year old can't get enough of it and is absorbing the material in leaps and bounds. Like another reviewer, I also have a background in programming, but I have not had to 'step in' at all and actually enjoy watching the boy figure out improvements by himself. Well worth it. Enjoy!

This is an incredible product. My boy is half way through all the levels and can't get enough of it. They are teaching REAL programming concepts while the kids feel like they are playing a game. My only problem will be figuring out how to keep up his enthusiasm after he has completed all of the levels. By the way I am a career programmer.
