Frequently Asked Questions

Designed for ages 4 years and up, both children and adults love playing Picoo. Additionally, it can be used by children of different ages at the same time, making it perfect for afterschool programs and times when classrooms come together.

Picoo is not just for kids! Enjoy using Picoo to mingle at your next staff meeting, Lunch and Learn, or Curriculum Night.

No. The Picoo controllers use their own network to communicate with each other so you don't need WiFi or GPS connection.
A Picoo controller exchanges messages with another Picoo controller up to a distance of about 160 feet. As long as another controller stays within 160 feet, you can keep the playing field as large as the number of controllers. For example, 3 Picoo controllers x 160 feet = 480 feet. Our advice is not to make the playing field larger than 3000 square yards.
The Picoo comes with a one-year limited warranty.
Picoo controllers are very durable. The rubber cap and wrist strap provide extra protection.
Picoo controllers are splash-proof. You can't play with it in the pool, but a big rain shower is no problem.
Up to 24 players. You can combine 2 sets.

It varies depending on the game you play, but in general, you can play 3 to 4 hours continuously.

With an empty battery, the Picoo controllers take about 4 hours to fully charge.

The controllers will flash quietly when charging.

  • Red: the controllers are busy charging.
  • Purple: the controllers are too hot (or cold) to charge. Once they have cooled down, charging will begin on its own.
  • Orange: the controllers are almost done charging. (You can use them to play again).
  • Green: the controllers are fully charged (the controllers will turn off automatically after 5 minutes).
Turn your Picoo off and on again. This is done by pressing and holding the button for at least three seconds. After three seconds, your Picoo will flash white and then turn off. Then you can turn the Picoo back on and play with it. If turning off the Picoo controller is not enough, you can also reset the controller completely. Press and hold the button on the Picoo controller for at least 30 seconds. The controller will now reboot on its own. If the above solutions do not reset your controller, please contact customer support for additional help.
