BitsBox, found online at BitsBox.com, is a monthly subscription box company that says their goal is to teach children to learn how to code using basic cards, codes, and imaginary tablets.
How Does It Work?
The website says that learning to code is like learning any foreign language – the earlier you start the learning process, the easier it will be. The materials included in your monthly BitsBox can be used by kids as soon as they have the ability to read and write.
The only thing that kids need to follow the BitsBox regimen is a computer with a web browser, preferably Google Chrome at this time, though that may change. All the work can be done inside a webpage, with no need to download or install any tools or software.
The kids will learn by copying code into a little text editor next to their virtual tablet, which in turn will run their newly programmed apps.
The website says that customers who choose to receive the physical monthly box will be charged $40 per month, while those who choose the online, PDF version will be charged $20 a month. Customers who commit to a full year subscription up front, will be charged only $30 per month.
Because the company is only receiving pre-orders at this time, customers should contact Customer Service if they are interested in canceling their order, and if they receive a box with damaged or defective products, customers should contact Customer Service as soon as possible.

Customers who would like to contact Customer Service with any questions, concerns, or complaints can do so by phone at 855-740-8914.
