What is the Blocky programming language used for?

On the Google homepage today there was a link to the Made w/ Code website and a small project that uses the Blocky programming language. I’ve never heard of Blocky before. Are there any real uses for Blocky other than teaching the basics of coding?
Check out the Blocky FAQ for a good overview:

It’s mainly a teaching tool to familiarize beginners with the basic concepts of coding. It allows budding programmers to use bits of code that are set up like jigsaw puzzle blocks (hence the name, Blocky) to create simple functions. Other than using it for basic education purposes, I don’t think there is anything you really do with it.
