We are receiving the arrival reports of PETS by many supporters of our Kickstarter campaign.We are so glad that we can deliver our PETS to you all.
But we are also receiving some trouble reports of PETS with malfunctions or hardware breakage.All PETS have been tested and confirmed its functionalities before the shipment from the factory. Thus, we are assuming that these troubles are caused by the damage during the transportation.In case you have this kind of trouble with Kickstarter delivery, please contact us for the solution.（Contact: email@example.com）
We sincerely apologize for this trouble and deeply regret that we missed the chance to deliver the smile for kids and parents. We are going to research the root cause of this trouble and take measure not to have this again ever.

Beggining from March 6th, it has been a short but long way for the team to get. However with having over 150 backers, we’ve achieved the goal.
This means, PETS comes to life in the world, with your help. Thank you so much for your support.
【PETS×Kickstarter】was successfully funded.
PETS is an intuitive, physical experience-based programming learning kit. Kids can program its movement by inserting tangible command blocks into the top of PETS.
Imagine, a child is learning programming.
The child may be alone, sitting in front of PC, looking into the display, and typing the code using the keyboard and mouse.
PETS doesn’t require any PC or tablet. Kids can touch the command, move the object, and learn the basic of the programming. All you need to program PETS movement is the wooden blocks which fit to the top holes of PETS.
PETS is suitable as the first step in learning to program and developing computational thinking, even before the visual programming.
Insert the basic blocks into the top holes of PETS, and push the start button!!
PETS moves steadily, and exactly as your command.
A grid on the table is the field of play.
A goal is set and PETS is placed on the start point,
you can avoid the obstacles with precise commands
Kids can search for the right path to the goal.
【Appropriate Age】 from 4-5 years old (with parents)
Students can learn the three basics of Control structures of programming, “Sequence”, “Iteration”, and “Selection”, from their interaction with PETS.
PETS moves exactly as students command using the blocks, thus Students can start learning immediately because of its simplicity. Teachers can minimize their learning overhead.
PETS can give students the chance to FAIL. PETS shows up with the actual movement for the trials by the students. Consequentially small failures can lead to a source of Imagination, Critical Insight, Logical thinking, and Self-motivated action.
PETS is operated without any cable, any wireless connection, nor tablet devices. And there is no need for a power outlet because it is fully battery powered.
The first PETS prototype has a big blue plastic button.
This is the second proto with pen-holder attachment.
This is 3rd version!
Ladies, and Gentlemen!!! Please welcome!!This is the latest version and the one kids can enjoy in our workshop!
PETS is developed by TheDesignium Inc. and patent filing.
With PETS, Kids can steam up their mind and work hard with their hands to overcome various challenges through trial and error.
We, “for Our Kids Inc.” want to introduce PETS
– to kids who love Gaming, craftwork, and programming.
– to parents who believe smart-phone and PC is too complicated and dangerous for your kids.
– to teachers and trainers who want to use PETS in your class.
