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.

Stopped working

It turns on and beeps, then turns itself off. Very disappointing.

Worked great, now broken

We got this as a gift at christmas. It's now several months later and it stopped working back in February. Wasn't dropped. Turns on, blinks red and won't do anything. Very disappointed in the product. I'm reading that we aren't the only ones finding this to be true.

Fun until it stopped working...

We loved playing with this with our daughter. She got a huge kick out of figuring out how to get it from location to location. After a couple months though it just stopped working It turns on, makes the noise like it wants to staelrt but then dosent move. It wasnt dropped or abused in any way and we cannot seem to fix the issue.
