Although it might look like an average toy, the 'Cubetto' is actually capable of enabling children to learn programming through play. Designed for both girls and boys to enjoy, the 'Cubetto' coding toy is intended for children aged three and up.

Currently being funded via Kickstarter where the toy has already garnered well over $100,000 in funding, the 'Cubetto' enables intuitive touch-based learning. The toy is designed with Montessori principles in mind, which allows children to learn programming at a comfortable pace rather than feeling like it's work.

The job market of the future will be filled with technology-centric jobs that will likely require applicants to know coding. New innovations like the 'Cubetto' toy are getting children ready for this imminent shift.
