The Cubetto Playset is the easiest way for children to start learning computer programming, and it consists of a friendly wooden robot named Cubetto, a physical programming console, a set of expandable coding blocks, a collection of beautifullly illustrated maps and an activity book. By placing the blocks in different patterns on the control panel, children 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.
The Maps and activity books help children and parents get started with play, by navigating Cubetto through stories and challenges. Planning these mini adventures helps children learn more than coding. They are now learning to tell stories, to communicate, and to think critically and independently.
About Adventure Pack:
The Adventure Pack is a set of 4x thematically illustrated world maps with corresponding activity books. Each map is a world to explore, each book is an adventure. Cubetto Playsets purchased in conjunction with an Adventure Pack outnumber Cubetto Playsets being sold individually 3 to 1.

What an awesome toy. My daughters absolutely love this toy. This is the first time that they have every done anything with coding outside of their school settings, but they absolutely love it. My girls are 4 and 6 and had a great time working on it together. My oldest loved to read and help out her sister, while her little sister was the “brains” of the operation. I think that this is a great toy for kids.
