#CubettoKS Cubetto. A playful programming language you can touch. Montessori ... @primotoys

Hoy traemos a este espacio a Cubetto. A playful programming language you can touch. Montessori approved, and LOGO Turtle inspired. Learn programming away from the screen.

Programming without the screen

Children help Cubetto find his way home by writing their first programs using a set of colorful coding blocks.

For girls and boys ages 3 and up

Children can use it even if they can't read yet, so no matter what language they speak, hands-on coding is at their fingertips.

Does it work?

Cubetto combines Montessori learning principles with computer programming concepts. We sold, hand-built, and shipped over 800 early prototypes to educators and parents in over 40 countries to test our assumptions.

Here's what some of them had to say...

Inside the box

Every Cubetto Playset comes with all the necessary parts to begin play right out of the box:
1. Cubetto
2. Board
3. 16 Blocks (4x Forward, 4x Right, 4x Left, 4x Function)
4. 1x1m World Map
5. Story Book
Cubetto is a wooden robot that wants to be told where to go and how to get there. A smiling companion capable of motoring his way through any adventure.

Think of the Board as an interface or a command line. Use it with the blocks to send instructions to Cubetto. There's one main sequence (A), a subroutine (B), and a Go button (C) to send instructions to Cubetto.

Our blocks are a new, procedural programming language. Much like LOGO was back in the 70's, except you can touch it! Each block is a specific and unambiguous instruction, easy to recognise and combine into a meaningful sequence.
  • Green - Forward 
  • Yellow - Left 90º 
  • Red - Right 90º 
  • Blue - Function

A floor map drawn on top of a grid helps you plan your next adventure. No destination is too far. Tell a story that means something to you!
