About this product

This item is eligible for same day delivery and faster in‑store collection

Code-A-Pillar features 9 easy-to-connect segments that preschoolers can arrange and rearrange to tell the toy how to move forward, left, right, wiggle, dance or even wait for a couple seconds before moving again. Kids can configure the segments in such a way that the Code-A-Pillar can reach targets they set up throughout the room. There's even a motorized head segment with lights, sounds and blinking eyes that brings Code-A-Pillar to life! Ready set code!

When kids connect the segments—in tons of different ways—to make code-a-pillar move left, then right, then forward, or wherever-- that's sequencing!

When they figure out a sequence that will create a path for code-a-pillar to reach a target, that's programming (and problem solving, too)! it's all coding—and it's all fun!

Code-a-pillar is one of the new learning toys from fisher-price that goes beyond abcs and 123s to help children learn how to think independently.

Each toy fosters 21st century skills like curiosity, experimentation and problem-solving in ways kids haven't seen before. They're engaged in hands-on open-ended discovery that helps them become lifelong learners.

Helps develop skills like sequencing, critical thinking, reasoning, discovery, memory, problem-solving and experimentation.

It stopped working

I bought this for Christmas for my son and he loved it so much. We even got him an extension pack! After 4 months of using it sporadically, it stopped working. This is ridiculous! It was an expensive toy that now is trash.

Like many others here, it stopped working

Gave this to our grandsons for Christmas. It worked beautifully but then got packed and put in storage when they moved. We just unpacked it, and it doesn't work. It's ridiculous that such a big toy company has such poor quality control. ALL these units should be replaced, as they are obviously defective.

Excellent toy but didn't work initially.

Bought this off Amazon USA from New Zealand (they don't sell them here). Had the red eye fail to move issue. Resolved by rewiring a faulty sensor. Works fantastic now but pretty shoddy to have a fault right out of the box knowing that it would be near impossible to return.
