Younger kids are getting more advanced as far as their knowledge with technology, so it makes sense that their toys are becoming more advanced, too! Challenging their minds and using the opportunity to teach while they learn is how kids learn best, so leave it to Fisher-Price and Best Buy to have our little one covered when it comes to the best toys for teaching!

Meet our newest addition, Fisher-Price’s Code-a-Pillar. It’s a motorized toy that lets kids mix and match 8 segments that control the movement of Code-a-Pillar. Left, right, straight, and even a little music and light break let kids have fun while learning.
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!
We’re having such a great time with Code-a-Pillar, though we found that the sliding power button on the bottom is a little tough for tiny fingers to control. Code-a-Pillar has segment expansion packs that will keep kids interested in play and creating more paths for it to follow.
Each starter kit includes:
• 8 segments: (3) move forward, (2) Turn Right 90 degrees, (2) Turn Left 90 degrees and (1) sound action segment
• 2 destination targets
• 1 motorized head
You can get Fisher-Price Code-a-Pillar at BestBuy for around $50.
