The Fisher-Price Think and Learn Code-a-pillar toy is now available on from Amazon.com and pre-order at Amazon UK.
We first came across Code-a-pillar at the CES 2016, and really pleased to see big toy companies developing toys to teach coding skills.
Code-a-pillar is a caterpillar with nine segments that detach and can be put back in a certain sequence. When you press "play" the caterpillar will move forward, left or right in the sequence of the segments. Each segment will light up, so your child can follow the programme.
The coding toy is specifically targetted at pre-schoolers and introduces them to very basic computational thinking skills. Kids will be able to "program" Code-a-pillar to perform certain tasks and learn problem solving skills.
Available now in the US: Code-a-pillar.
