Code-A-Pillar features 9 easy-to-connect segments that preschoolers can arrange and rearrange to tell the toy how to move forward, left, right, wiggle, dance or even wait for a couple seconds before moving again. Kids can configure the segments in such a way that the Code-A-Pillar can reach targets they set up throughout the room. There's even a motorized head segment with lights, sounds and blinking eyes that brings Code-A-Pillar to life! Ready set code!
When kids connect the segments—in tons of different ways—to make code-a-pillar move left, then right, then forward, or wherever-- that's sequencing!
When they figure out a sequence that will create a path for code-a-pillar to reach a target, that's programming (and problem solving, too)! it's all coding—and it's all fun!
Code-a-pillar is one of the new learning toys from fisher-price that goes beyond abcs and 123s to help children learn how to think independently.
Each toy fosters 21st century skills like curiosity, experimentation and problem-solving in ways kids haven't seen before. They're engaged in hands-on open-ended discovery that helps them become lifelong learners.
Helps develop skills like sequencing, critical thinking, reasoning, discovery, memory, problem-solving and experimentation.
