Frequently asked questions

  • Why Tynker?

    Give the special children in your life educational gifts that unlock their creativity and teach them skills they can build upon later in life. Tynker’s engaging and fun games allow kids to learn to code at an early age. With our coding gifts for kids, you’ll be giving them the problem-solving and technical abilities they will need as they get older. Whether or not they choose to pursue a career in technology, these computer coding gifts help them learn valuable lessons through our unique drag-and-drop visual coding language. These gifts for coders use blocks to teach them core concepts in the form of a game — providing them with a foundation to jump to more complex platforms such as JavaScript and Python.
    Our award-winning courses make the perfect coding gifts for teens as well as younger children because they are made for all skill levels and ages. The built-in tutorials guide them through hands-on learning. With our mobile apps, kids can take their lessons as well as the games and apps they build on the go. To learn more about what makes these the best gifts for coders, take a look at everything we have to offer on this page.

  • How will my child benefit from using Tynker?

    Tynker courses teach critical 21st century skills, including computer programming, critical thinking, and problem solving. Students learn how to logically sequence events, create playable games, tell good stories, and model real situations. They also learn computational thinking by developing algorithmic and design thinking abilities. After learning the fundamentals, kids can transition to JavaScript within the Tynker learning system depending on the home plan you choose.

  • How do I pick the best plan for my child?

    Tynker has several great plans to choose from — Tynker Essentials, Tynker Plus, and Tynker All-Access.

    • Tynker Essentials is the perfect plan to get your child started with the basics of block coding. Recommended for ages 5-7 and lasts 3 months. The Tynker Jr app comes with this plan.
    • Tynker Plus is Tynker Essentials plus all block coding projects, Minecraft modding courses, robotics, and all 3 Tynker apps. Recommended for ages 8 to 13 and lasts 12 months. All 3 Tynker apps come with this plan: Tynker Jr, Tynker, Mod Creator.

    Each of these plans is available for one child or a family for up to 3 children.

    We also offer multi-year plans at a very low monthly price, giving the user access to all of Tynker for 3 years. Multiyear plans allow children to progress from block to text coding at an organic pace and are good for all ages.

    All plans come with a 30-day money-back guarantee.

  • Can my children share a single account?

    Multiple children cannot share the same account, because they will overwrite each other’s work. We offer discounts when you add additional children to our plans.

  • Do you offer discounts for multiple children?

    Yes. Check out our plans: Family Essentials, Family Plus and Family All Access. With up to 3 children in one family account, everyone can enjoy learning to code together.

  • How do I know my child is learning how to code?

    Tynker automatically tracks your child’s achievements as they work through lessons and activities. From your Parent Dashboard, you can view your children’s progress through the courses, the projects they’ve created, and the concepts they’ve learned. You can even share projects with your friends and family.

  • Will my subscription renew automatically?

    Yes, your subscription will renew automatically by default. After purchasing, you can turn off recurring billing and edit any other payment information from your Tynker parent dashboard.

  • How do I turn off auto-renewal for my subscription?

    If you purchased the subscription from our website, you can cancel a plan by turning off automatic renewal in settings via your Parent Dashboard. Click “Manage” next to each child and select “cancel.” This will remove auto-renewal.

    If you purchased the subscription through our iPad app, you need to cancel through the iPad general settings. Open up the settings for the iPad and scroll down until you see iTunes & App Store.

  • What devices are Tynker courses supported on?

    You can access Tynker courses from any computer with a modern browser and Internet connection. Some courses are also available on the Tynker iPad app. To access courses from the iPad app, sign in to your account.

  • What is the difference between the web subscription and iPad subscription?

    The iPad subscription gives you access to our 16 iPad courses; the web subscription gives you access to courses based on the plan you choose, Tynker All-Access has over 65+ courses and 5,000 activities including Python, JavaScript and a private Minecraft server.

  • What are the technical requirements for Minecraft modding?

    We currently support two versions of Minecraft – Minecraft (formerly known as Pocket Edition or Windows 10 Edition) and Minecraft: Java Edition. To use mobs, skins, blocks, and Add-Ons for Minecraft, you must install Minecraft on either your computer or your mobile device, download the creation onto the device, and import it into Minecraft.

    To deploy mods, skins, and resource packs for Minecraft: Java Edition made with Tynker, you must have purchased a Minecraft account from Mojang and installed Minecraft: Java Edition on your desktop or laptop computer. You will need to connect to our Tynker server and your private world to see your creations.]

    Yes, you can go here to gift Tynker Plus one year plan, Tynker All-Access individual one year plan or Tynker All-Access Family one year plan. You will be charged the entire amount up front and the subscription will not renew.
