About

Learn to code while exploring 12 different subjects through hours of interactive, hands-on play. 100% screen-free. 100% fun.  

Through engaging plot lines, Mochi harnesses boys’ and girls’ love of storytime and encourages early childhood literacy—the foundation for a lifetime of learning.

You decide what you want Mochi's robot to do
Think how you want Mochi to move, find those blocks, put them into the programming board, and press 'Please Go' to execute your code!
Put a FUNction block on the main sequence and add blocks in function line to create your very first function call
Explore adventures from the Mochi Story Library to enrich the learning experience

Mochi comes with up to 12 adventures. Each adventure is comprised of: a story book, a matching story map, and coding blocks unique to that adventure. 

Each adventure takes your child on an epic journey through topics ranging from ABCs to Biology to Good Habits. After each story, complete the coding challenges to see Mochi's adventures come alive on the Story Maps.

 Here are some anonymous responses from a survey we sent out to our early backers.

Take your child away from the screen through hands-on, creative play.

Mochi develops critical thinking and computational logic—100% screen-free!

Mochi engages your child in computing and problem-solving through hands-on code, interactive storytelling, and DIY assembly.

Children learn at their own pace and challenge themselves by designing their characters, experimenting with coding commands, and exploring new subjects.

Your child will learn to problem-solve through interactive feedback, trial-and-error, and simple yet extensible programming algorithms.

Mochi focuses your child for long periods of engaged play to encourage life skills such as concentration, resilience, and patience.

Mochi’s robot is fully compatible with LEGO and is the perfect platform for the budding engineer and artist. Your child can experiment with hands-on DIY. 

Mochi is made from 100% natural, biodegradable wood-based materials, to ensure your child’s safety now and inspire sustainable values for a lifetime.

Mochi offers high-quality, long-lasting play and is a great reason to bring you and your child together for memorable learning experiences. 



As part of our guaranteed Christmas delivery, backers of the Mochi Inventor’s Kit will receive their Robotics Kit and first 6 Story Packs ahead of December 25, 2019⁠—no matter where in the world you are. The latter 6 Story Packs will be shipped in 2020. 

This is done to ensure that all backers get their Mochis for Christmas (since BIG packages are more likely to get stuck in customs during the holidays).

Thus, backers of the Inventor’s Kit can continue to expect new, exciting adventures in their mailboxes and doorsteps for both Christmas 2019 and into the new year—two times the surprise! 

These are some anonymous responses from a survey we sent out to our early backers.

Beyond programming, Mochi encourages interdisciplinary life skills. Learning with Mochi, your child builds the expertise to tackle other difficulties as well.

Some of the concepts Mochi teaches include:

We are a public-benefit corporation based in San Francisco. With a globally distributed team working out of 14 time zones, we create the most inclusive, holistic, and wholesome learning experience for every child.
