STEM toys are all the rage, and for good reason—they encourage problem solving, planning and critical thinking skills from a young age. This one makes coding super easy for little hands to work with (not to mention super cute).
WHAT WE LOVE
- The Code-a-Pillar comes with eight interchangeable pieces that can be rearranged to chart the bug’s path. Move him forward, left or right and create a different course every time, learning sequencing along the way
- Kids (ages 3 and up) are in control of this hands-on learning, which piques curiosity and experimentation
- Need bells and whistles to make coding a little more fun? This guy lights up, blinks and makes sounds
Lots of toys help teach cause and effect, but this one lets your child control the outcome again and again.
