Robots are trendy.But the programmable wooden robot for children is simply stunning!It exists, and it is called Cubetto.It is all cute and its cubic forms hides a real technology.Thanks to its barely visible wheels, Cubetto moves forward, turns, stops.In fact, it "executes the code" that your child has programmed.
TRUE, CUBETTO IS MADE TO BE PROGRAMMED BY CHILDREN FROM THE AGE OF 3
Boys and girls, who have not yet learned to read or write, will be able to create their little program from the game console which is also made of wood.No keyboard required, no screen, no digital interface. That is also revolutionary.And, parents concerned about the impact of screens on the eyes of their kids will be delighted.
Cubetto is the only robot that turns code into something that is touchable. In fact, they are ns of different shapes and colors. A block corresponds to a particular displacement.
The child simply needs his hands, a bit of curiosity and a good deal of imagination. Once the program is done, that is, the blocks are placed in the console's boxes, just press a button to transmit the information to the robot via Bluetooth. With dazzled eyes, the child will watch his Cubetto perform the movements he has asked him to do.
HOW TO PLAY CUBETTO?
You say to yourself: "Cubetto alone, is not very playful!" Indeed, otherwise it would be summarized with a remote-controlled robot. Rest assured, it comes with a lot of accessories: in addition to the console and blocks, there is also an adventure book and a game board with lots of nice pictures, a complete kit to invent stories, illustrate a tale, having fun alone or with friends, with siblings.Dad, Mom, grandpa and grandma, the babysitter and even nanny, will also be able to participate in the game.

How is this coding?
Cubetto introduces a host of programming concepts, including ‘algorithms’, ‘the queue’, ‘debugging’, and ‘recursions’. By removing unfamiliar distractions such as screens and keyboards this allows children as young as three to write and execute their first programs, using our tangible, block-based coding language.
Is it suitable for 3 year olds?
Absolutely, Cubetto has been specifically designed to be most useful for children aged 3-6, meaning we’ve paid a huge amount of attention to every last detail. From the child-friendly language in our stories, to the machine-washable maps.
Do you ship worldwide?
We’re thrilled to be shipping to 60 countries around the world and are constantly working to bring Cubetto to more people meaning this number is increasing rapidly. To check if Cubetto is available in your country, visit our shop to and check our list of countries we ship to.
Can I use this in my classroom?
