After a successful Kickstarter campaign the Arduino educational coding toy Cubetto is now available worldwide with prices starting from $225. The system uses a variety of different colourful blocks to enable small children from the ages of three and up to create their first computer programs.
Watch the video below to learn more about this educational Arduino coding toy which was hugely successful buyer the Kickstarter crowdfunding website.
The playset consists of a friendly wooden robot named Cubetto, a physical programming console, a set of expandable coding blocks, a collection of illustrated maps, and an activity book. It’s the first programming toy of its kind to work without a digital interface or display, enabling children to explore the world of coding through storytelling, adventure and collaboration–even before they can read or write.
By placing the blocks in different patterns on the control panel, kids can create sequences of instructions that program the robot’s movement. In the process, they develop computational thinking skills that help them understand the basic principles of coding–all of this, in a very age-appropriate way that respects a child’s natural way of learning.
