Even pre-readers can learn to code with Tynker Junior! Tynker Junior is the fun, interactive way to spark your child’s interest in coding. Young children (ages 5-7) learn the fundamentals of coding by snapping together graphical blocks to move their characters.
Tynker Junior was inspired by the award-winning Tynker programming language (tynker.com), used by 60 million kids and in over 90,000 schools worldwide. The graphical language and user interface have been redesigned to make it easy for pre-readers, with word-free picture blocks, a tap-based interface, friendly voiceovers, helpful hints, as well as a gentle progression of difficulty to motivate completion.
Tynker Junior includes 200+ coding challenges in 5 puzzle-based adventures and 2 project creation studios:
Learn sequencing and pattern recognition in this fun underwater adventure, as you help Gillie the goldfish collect coins!
Bring wacky robots to life and fix the programming in a robot factory while you learn about events and parameters.
Help eight endangered animals traverse a jungle path while avoiding obstacles, using counting loops, delays, and parameters.
Help adorable dust bunnies add to their sock collection as you apply conditional loops to navigate a dynamic environment.
Join the Super Squad and retrieve stolen museum treasure from super villains using conditional logic to handle changing situations.
[NEW] ART AND MUSIC STUDIO
Generate math art and compose music using a sandbox environment that allows you to create programs using coding skills you have learned.
[NEW] ANIMATION STUDIO
Make interactive animations and tell stories using a set of sandboxes that allow you to create programs with code.
When you are done with Tynker Junior, you can download Tynker, our other app that includes 14 additional adventures, as well as a full-featured Workshop to build games, control toys, and build Minecraft add ons.

Cute characters the kiddos love
Cute characters and lovely graphics disguise surprisingly complex coding concepts. Must admit I sat and played through all the levels before the kiddos even got their hands on it! Love that blocks are provided so no guessing or searching. Seems like the perfect level of difficulty for kindergarten ages.
Ciasimmer was the late afternoon for the day to come to my house game I am a bit of fun but it is a fun little bit fun but fun to be around fun to game and I play for fun but it has a bit more to do but it has to run a little more game to run game over the next few
I thought since I signed up for a monthly subscription I would continue to advance through the levels and games once I finished. Instead it told me I had to go to the website and PAY again for further games and lessons. That version won’t even work on my iPhone so what’s the point of keeping it. Glad I tested it first.
