Cubetto is a Montessori-approved product that does not involve any screens!
Cubetto started as a wildly successful Kickstarter project. Cubetto is a cute wooden robot that children learn to program. Children can place commands together to make Cubetto navigate around the room. There are different adventure maps that change the setting.
At this very young age, the main goal is for the children to have fun and to be exposed to computational thinking. Instructors will dress up as Cubetto and the children will have a blast barking commands at the teacher to navigate them around the room.
