Primo aims to combine physical object play with teaching kids programming basics. Successfully funded on Kickstarter on December 2013 from London based company Primo, and founded by Filippo Yacob and Matteo Loglio, Primo is now available for pre-order for delivery May 2015.
Plainly speaking, Primo is a toy that uses shapes and colors to teach programming logic through a fun sensory learning experience.
The toy consists of 3 parts: 1) the board, which is the physical programming interface; 2) a cute robot name Cubetto which you can program to move around; and 3) a set of colorful “code” blocks that guide movement (forward, left, right and function).
I love that this is a toy that encourages tactile play with no use of screen time but which also enhances problem solving and kids’ knowledge of digital learning which is ever so important in today’s generation. Find out more at Primo and where you can now place a pre-order for delivery May 2015.
