When I returned home from my son’s recent tonsilectomy, there was a package waiting for me at the door. Talk about perfect timing – the package was from Best Buy, and I knew inside was something that would lift his spirits in the days to come! I also knew the Code-a-Pillar™ would be perfect for helping us get through the recovery.
I thought the Code-a-Pillar would stay in the box for a few days, but I was wrong. On post-op day 2, my son was asking to open the package and put the CodeaPillar together! I love educational toys that make learning fun, so of course I was happy to “give in” to his request!
This unique caterpillar learning toy encourages kids to experiment as they play, helping them to develop problem-solving, planning & sequencing and critical thinking skills. Code-a-Pillar™ inspires little learners to be big thinkers by encouraging preschoolers to arrange (and rearrange) the easy-to-connect segments in endless combinations, sending Code-a-Pillar™ on his path. This learning toy encourages experimentation while developing important skills like problem solving, planning & sequencing and critical thinking. There’s no end to the combinations kids can make – mix up the segments and put them back together to send Code-a-Pillar™ in a different direction every time!
I appreciated the colorful pieces and the fact that they lit up as each task was being completed. (The engaging sounds attracted my 5 month old, which is to be noted!) We soon had the Code-a-Pillar making circles around the living room, which even had Mom and Dad showing off their problem solving skills and stressing that every cause has an effect! Once we played around with the Code-a-Pillar, I learned that expansion packs are available, which makes the code-a-pillar longer and able to complete even more tasks! This is great for teaching sequencing and programming!
Isn’t it adorable? It’s geared toward preschoolers, but my 9 year old was having just as much fun as my 6 year old!
Make sure you check out the Code-a-Pillar™ at your local Best Buy store!
