Plobot: A Programmable Toy for Age 4+

Plobot is a programmable floor robot for little kids ages from around 4 up. Plobot is programmed by swiping physical cards, avoiding the need for a connected device. 

It's an interesting approach which gets kids leaning coding skills as they play on the floor. This is further encouraged by adding LEGO Duplo compatible studs so kids can incorporate Plobot into their building. 

Kids are also encouraged to customise their Plobot with stickers and pens and it is available in a choice of arm/wheel colours. 

You're going to need to make sure you don't lose those cards. There could be problems if a toddler puts 'Go Ahead' down the back of a radiator ... But bringing coding into play rather than just screen-time for young kids definitely appeals.
