Code-a-pillar encourages young people to arrange its movement segments in different combinations to guide Code-a-pillar along a path. It encourages experimentation while developing important skills like problem solving, planning & sequencing and critical thinking.

Connect the segments to the motorised head and press the go button to direct the Code-a-pillar. Each segment has a different coded action (forward, left, right, sound), and Code-a-pillar lights up each segment as the action is being run.

Recommended Ages 3 to 6 years
Product Cost $90-$120 per code-a-pillar.
Additional segments can be purchased separately for around $10-$15.
Where to Purchase Most toy stores that stock pre-school based toys, such as MrToys
