LONDON, Nov. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Cubetto, the award winning, Montessori-approved coding toy for children ages 3 and up, is now available for purchase worldwide on www.primotoys.com.
Cubetto is your child's first year of coding education. Created by Primo Toys, Cubetto is the only screen-less programming system, powered by a revolutionary coding language made of colorful blocks that lets children write their first computer programs. 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 beautifully 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 learn to tell stories, to communicate, and to think critically and independently. Here's a link to see Cubetto in action. "Learning in early years should be easy and fun," says CEO and Co-Founder Filippo Yacob. "The beauty of Cubetto is that it encourages coding through hands-on play - making learning much more enjoyable while also developing logical thinking, sequencing and coding skills." Cubetto provides gender-neutral play that boosts a child's creativity, critical thinking, spatial awareness and communication skills. Cubetto is the only coding toy that can be used by sighted and non-sighted children in the same setting, creating an equal learning environment that promotes inclusive play. By combining movement, touch and sound, Cubetto also helps children with disabilities strengthen their sequencing and communication skills.
