Timberdoodle's review Learn more
If your children use a computer, then they should learn the basics of how computer programming works. It doesn't get any easier than Terrapin Logo. Logo is an ideal first programming language that responds immediately to simple commands that your child creates. This easily-understood computer language enables even younger children to break down projects into smaller, solvable parts.

After mastering simple drawings, your children will learn how to effortlessly animate using their Logo graphics. Terrapin Logo's music system also allows your children to create and play tunes with ease in multiple voices and on multiple instruments.

This updated version of Terrapin Logo introduces the Logo toolbox that contains commonly used Logo tools and resources. Add your own resources to the toolbox and customize your Logo environment by putting your favorite tools at your fingertips.

Many of us cut our programming teeth on Logo, but this recently revised edition is incredible. Even if your family is new to the language of Logo, Terrapin Logo's crystal-clear tutorial will give you the tools you need to start programming with little computer gobbledygook.

Terrapin Logo comes on a dual Windows/Macintosh CD-ROM and includes complete on-line help in HTML format along with a Getting Started Guide, Quick Reference Guide, Terrapin Logo Tutorial, and Terrapin Logo Reference Manual.

Plus, all Timberdoodle Terrapin Logo orders will also receive Logo Works, an incredibly comprehensive resource for introducing computer literacy to fourth through eighth graders. By using Logo Works, your child will explore Logo in a systematic way and gain a greater command of the concepts presented. Logo Works contains 46 lessons with over 250 activities to challenge students at all levels. In addition, example procedures for Logo Works are available as a free download from Terrapin's website. A separate teacher's guide is also available and helpful if computer programming is a totally new venture for your family.

This new 32-bit version of Logo is designed for Windows 95/98/ NT/2000 and XP, and Macintosh OS8, OS9, OS10 and OSX. Dual format for Macintosh/Windows computers - Terrapin Logo runs on both Macintosh and Windows computers.

    Math Motivator November 15, 2010
    Reviewer: Tawn B from Shelton, WA United States  
    My 11 year-old son thinks this program is too much fun to be considered schoolwork!  He loves programming the turtle to draw and will ask me how to calculate lengths of sides for his houses, sidewalks, etc.  This gives me a great opportunity to remind him of the Pythagorean theorem or teach him a bit of trigonometry.  He also recently discovered that it can be used to write programs for his Lego NXT robot -- a bonus!  I was especially pleased with  the printed manual and tutorial that came with the program.  I appreciate these written materials as I find them much easier to use than the usual pdf manuals that often come with products nowadays.

    LOGO is amazing, great for the self-starter November 13, 2009
    Reviewer: Cynthia from Washington, MO United States  
    My son has been doing LOGO for several years now. He studied a bit of Scheme using another online program and is now using his knowledge to program fairly sophisticated "games" on LOGO. This is a particularly exciting product for those kids who think fast and "out of the box." It develops logic and critical thinking skills as well as requires a student to study independently and learn on their own (at least that's how it works at our house). Worth every penney.

    Gave him a better grasp on computer systems October 27, 2008
    Reviewer: Kelly B. from Frankfort, IN  
    My son used this product and that was a jumping off point for his interest in computer.  The program gave him a better grasp on more advanced computer systems.  My daughters will use this program as well. I also, want to say that when I purchased this a few years ago, I was reluctant because of the price and I emailed Timberdoodle about it.  They promptly replied and assured me that it was worth the price. Thank you.
