Hello everyone! This is Filippo, co-founder of Primo Toys. We make Cubetto - the Montessori-approved, friendly wooden robot that teaches toddlers computer programming. Children (aged 3+) help Cubetto navigate a magical world by writing their first programs using hands-on coding blocks. No tablets, no WiFi. Think of it as a physical LOGO Turtles if you like. Instead of just making the robot tangible, we made the coding part tangible too, and screen-less. Last year we launched Cubetto on Kickstarter and raised $1.6M thanks to our amazing community! To date, we’ve shipped over 20,000 units worldwide and this year we are back on Kickstarter with new themed world maps and books to make Cubetto’s world bigger. We are also part of the Kickstarter Gold initiative which celebrates $1B paid to repeat creators: https://www.kickstarter.com/gold - we reached our $100k goal in the first 3.5 hours and we’ve also added some extra goodies for our backers - check out the latest updates! We are also looking for some beta tester for our new, top-secret project, so if you have children between the ages of 3 and 7, and live in the Greater London area, we’d love to connect! If you’re interested, please connect with Ben on ben@primotoys.com Thanks! Filippo

This is really cool! I dig the "no screen" approach :)

I backed this project last week, as soon as I heard about it. The team has been keeping all backers up to date, and its numbers are increasing insanely! When I showed my daughter what she'll get for her birthday in September, her smile brightened and she keeps asking me to play the video again and again (probably until receiving her Cubetto!). No doubt this is a HUGE hit.

@vitorspencer we hope so too, and the stories with maps should make for a wonderful experience. If we can help with any other information before delivery let us know. We'd be happy to share resources and content that can enhance the experience.
I purchased Cubetto this past Christmas, and have been playing with it with my 6 and 4 year olds. They love it, and adults find it fun to play with as well. The wooden finish gives it a lovely natural flavour.

@molgar so glad to hear it. Using wood was an important design aspect for us. Mainly because it's a tactile and warm material, but also because over time it will start to show all the signs of love and use. Every ding and scratch will represent an adventure, or a great memory, which is really what makes wooden toys age so well. Let us know if we can help with anything else, and if you have any videos or pics of your kids playing we'd love to receive them. Any feedback you have is also welcome! Thank you.
