Switcheroo Coding Crew
This applied coding toy allows young kids to strengthen coding and problem-solving skills through complex storylines to help vehicle characters save their town.

Though this set is intended for children four and older, younger users might need assistance understanding the concepts fully. However, even just playing with the toy and learning to use the buttons to create movement patterns serves as fantastic early STEM development! The set has several challenge cards but encourages children to expand their knowledge and create new solutions. This toy is a great way for young children to learn design process concepts, including problem identification, trial and error, and solution development, while still having fun with cars! - C.R.
