I think Amazon matched Target on this

Target Link [target.com] (price shown in cart)


Game w/ bases also seems to be at a low price per CamelCamel
  • New to Osmo? select "game + Osmo iPad base" or "game + iPhone base" above to get the Osmo base required to play.
  • Create and layer melodies, drum beats, and more while building original compositions with fun characters from different worlds.
  • Combine unique coding blocks into sequences & patterns to make your beat come alive.
  • Place unique coding blocks into sequences, patterns and subroutines, (don't worry, they'll get it) and click, clack, twist and turn, and they'll have their own music hit.
  • A great introduction to the concepts of coding, specifically developed kids ages 5 to 12.

My kids love this. Definitely a great addition if you have the game base already. May not be the best introduction to coding on its own.

If only they would ever release the Android version of osmo they said they were going to have out in 2017. Guess I should pester them about it again.

My oldest is 7 and she does quite well with it. My second oldest is 5 and that's probably about the youngest I would go. Osmo has three games in their coding series. Osmo Coding Awbie is their starter one and it's great! Really fun for everyone, including dad. The second is the series is this Coding Jam which is music-focused and very fun once you get the hang of it. I would say it's less coding heavy and more exploratory as to what the different tiles will do to the sounds. The third is a co-op game for two players which I haven't opened yet as I'm not sure my kids would be ready. The Osmo site has a bundle of all three.

My kids are 6 and 7 and had been exploring bitsbox.com. IMO at that age it's more important to show them they can code and it's not something that should be viewed as intimidating. There's cute stamps they can use and it's pretty easy to try out (free unless you want have them mail you programming ideas/guides every month)

If you have an iPad, Apple's Swift Playgrounds app is free and is a much better and more practical introduction to programming than this kit.
