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.

great entertainment

This product kept my child entertained for hours can't wait to try the extra attachments you can get. It's easy enough for my child to take apart and put together on her own. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

It does what's box says it foes

Received this toy over the weekend and my four year old Grandson has barely put it down. It is durable and is doing well with my very active Grandson. He's tuff on his toys and nothing broke. The pieces are easy to connect and it does exactly what the package says. Which is really nice. It engages the child and provides endless possibilities depending on what order the pieces are put together. The lights are really fun too. Music and changing colors bring delight also. I feel the toy is helping with problem solving and critical thinking. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

so unique!

got this for my four almost five year old granddaughter,she was thrilled!it is a little advanced for her;although at times she treats it as a pet.we have many toys from the same company that she just keeps playing with and has been for years;i believe this will be another one;as it is very well made.i believe that my ten year old granddaughter would like it,but she has not seen it yet!
