2016 Hot Holiday Gift Guide -- Day Eleven: Cubetto11:42 AM
Thanks to Primo Toys for sponsoring this post! Opinions are our own.
If you love the richness that Montessori approved toys and games provide, then you should be very excited about this new product we learned about! Cubetto is a coding toy for kids as young as 3 years old, and it's Montessori-approved!
We have kids in our house who love to code, but we started until very late in the game to get them interested. My only regret is that we should have started earlier. Cubetto helps with that, as it is your child’s first year of coding education!
This innovative toy is the only screen-less programming system, which is great when you're concerned about screentime for little ones. It was developed by Primo Toys, and it uses the brilliance of colorful blocks to discover and learn coding language. As a mom who has been prioritizing coding in our own children's homeschool education, I cannot emphasize enough that the critical thinking required for coding can't be taught early enough. It is not only important for future programmers and STEM professionals --it's the type of thinking that will be useful for all careers and paths!
Kids as little as 3 can create their very first computer programs using the following components:
- a friendly wooden robot named Cubetto
- a physical programming console
- a set of expandable coding blocks
- a collection of beautifully illustrated maps
- activity book
You can buy Cubetto now at www.primotoys.com for $225, or $245 when bundled with the Cubetto Activity Pack (which is a great value with the four additional world maps and matching story books.)
