KinderLab Robotics Opens New Headquarters in Waltham, Massachusetts

Developer of KIBO, the developmentally-appropriate robot kit for 4-7 year olds, opens first dedicated manufacturing and office space

WALTHAM, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — February 17, 2015KinderLab Robotics, a creator of toys and educational tools that teach four to seven year-olds to program and understand logic, has moved to new office space and manufacturing headquarters in Waltham, Massachusetts.

The offices and manufacturing space is close to the historic technology hub of Route 128 and is part of the company’s growth plans as it looks to hire new employees and increase manufacturing capacity.

“The importance of teaching children to understand logic and to be in charge of technology is creating a huge demand,” said Mitch Rosenberg, CEO and co-founder of KinderLab Robotics. “This demand for KIBO has allowed us to move to the next stage of growth – and to move into larger manufacturing premises in Waltham. We’ve experienced a whirlwind of orders from schools, teachers, parents, after-school programs, and camps since the close of our successful crowdfunding campaign last summer and the most recent holiday season. We look forward to what 2015 will bring.”

KIBO is a programming robot kit that develops cognitive, social, emotional and motor skills through familiar wooden blocks, encouraging open-ended play. Its customizable platform combines technology with expressive arts and relevant curriculum.
