Description from the packaging.

The programming language that grows with you.
Logo is the critically-acclaimed programming language that's considered the ideal first computer language. SmartLogo is designed to conform to the way children think. It not only helps them learn... it helps them realize their full creative potential as they do it. And the best part is... it's loads of fun, too!

One of the fullest Logo programs ever developed!
SmartLogo has important control features not usually found in home Logo programs. It puts 30 dynamic "turtles" and 16 beautiful colors at your command, giving you full animation capability. You can also add music and other rich sound effects. All this and more makes SmartLogo one of the most inspiring, well-rounded programs available!

An extraordinarily effective learning tool!
SmartLogo has proven effective in evaluation after evaluation. Coleco found it acts as an arena for discovery, encouraging children to explore their own creativity. They spend more time building new skills because they're having more fun!

  • Advanced programmers use "list processing" to create and solve math and word problems.
  • Intermediate users respond to the challenge of designing their own computer games.
  • As skills grow, the programmer uses up to 30 dynamic "turtles" to create animation.
  • Beginners enjoy the immediate feedback of watching the "turtle" draw simple forms!

SmartLogo features:

  • 30 Turtles
  • 16 Dazzling Colors
  • Music and Sound Effects
  • Animation and Much More!
