About this product

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.

At first it was great...but now it's disappointing

My daughter received this as a Christmas present and absolutely loved it. She loved watching it move and dancing to the different sounds (which are incredibly loud). However, now, it no longer works properly. It will run the first or first two segments, but then it shuts off. We've put only a few segments on to see if it would change the end result, but the same thing happens. I'm very disappointed that it is operating this way. It is a rather expensive toy to have just sit on the shelf.
