A new way to teach kids computer skills, before they can even read a book

Children growing up in today’s world can't afford to miss out on coding—it is becoming a basic 21st-century literacy. Starting young on cultivating this skill set gives them an edge, and starting with something fun means they can learn faster and better. Cubetto by Primo Toys is a children's toy in the form of a wooden robot that can speed up the learning process.

By using the playset, children start ‘writing' their first lines of code, by arranging the blocks in the interface. Children help the robot find his way home by writing their first programs using a set of colorful coding blocks. It’s a programming language in tangible form; they create successions of commands (programs) to solve problems on the map. It teaches children how to code without the need for a screen.
