At the 2018 North American International Toy Fair, Thames & Kosmos launched a new Coding & Robotics kit for kids. While there are many toy and tech brands that have assembled similar playsets, this one takes a unique approach in that no smartphones or tablets are required for learning. Instead, kids are guided through the process with the help of Sammy, a robotic peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
Sammy boasts the ability to physically drive over and scan placed coding cards, which can activate everything from a change in direction to sounds or LED lights.
With the Coding & Robotics kit, kids ages four and up have the chance to learn 30 coding lessons, including the basics on sequences, loops, functions and variables.
