Cubetto is described by Primo Toys as ascreenless coding toy for children aged 3 to 6 years. We decided to investigate its appeal and dig a bit deeper into the claims and case studies in recent publications such as the independent Hello World magazine. It is aesthetically appealing and is a nice solid piece of kit to put into the hands of any child from 3 years upwards. Children can begin to code by using the solid wooden pieces in the control board and can move the robot around a story board or map.
We met with Giorgia Migliaresi, Head of Education at Primo Toys and she was quick to point out the wealth of Educator resources that are available with the Cubetto, these include; case studies, lesson plans and a community forum and have been well received around the world.
One article which has particularly resonated is a study which was carried out by Hello World and published in Issue 5 of the magazine (see the full article here). Tangible Programming in EYFS and KS1 – this article compares the use of Cubetto and Bee Bots and draws some very interesting conclusions.
