Coding Critters® MagiCoders: Blazer the Dragon & Skye the Unicorn are robot toys ready to teach preschoolers early coding skills through fun, imaginative play. You can even design your own endless coding challenges with Blazer’s & Skye’s 22-piece interactive play set.
To programme, children press the four directional arrows on the coding wand, and press Go which sends Blazer or Skye on a journey. Switch the wand to Spell mode, then open the enchanted spell book to find the mystical codes and activities and cast a few training spells.
Blazer/Skye and the wand require 5 AAA batteries, not included.

What our experts think
MagiCoders Coding Critters engage children in early coding, by introducing them to creating and copying patterns and logical sequences for a unicorn or dragon robot to follow. As children put the symbols in the correct order to cast a magic spell, they are learning the fundamentals of programming code.
A great way to engage younger children in STEM learning is by combining it with imaginative play and the Coding Critters allow children to develop their directional vocabulary, visual thinking and problem-solving skills as they work out how to make their critter light up, speak, dance and move. Persevering and seeing the successful results of their actions caused much excitement and a great sense of achievement!
– Promotes logical thinking and problem-solving
– Great for following instructions
– Develops perseverance
