Children develop their fine motor and construction skills. This toy also supports STEM learning and introduces tools that can promote an interest in engineering.
The robot is made of shiny, hard plastic and is BPA-compliant. There is also a pink version available.
Users love that children can customize their robot with the stickers, and that there’s no need for batteries. As one very young user put it, “And it doesn’t even need batteries so it won’t die!”
Fisher-Price Code ‘n Learn Kinderbot. Click the photo to see the price on Amazon.
This adorable robot makes an interactive friend for preschoolers. There are 3 ways to play: free coding, learning challenges, and ‘secret codes’. Children can input a code to determine where the Kinderbot will go. There are also colorful lights that correspond to different codes and actions.
This toy is a good way to teach children not only about coding and problem-solving, but about the more basic colors, shapes, actions and fun phrases.
In ‘free coding’, children press the direction buttons to ‘code’ a path that the robot will then follow. Instant gratification!
In ‘learning challenges’, children solve different problems to help them learn counting, colors and simple math concepts such as greater than and less than.
The toy comes with 4 simple machine accessories and a ‘secret code’ booklet to unlock more coding learning. In Secret Codes, children can even turn their robot into different characters. The machine accessories can help children conduct simple experiments to figure out how things work.
The robot is specifically designed to help prepare preschoolers for kindergarten.
