Take your first coding steps,
one block at a time!

Place Cody and his house where you want to play, then plan the route. It can be as big as you want, and different building blocks will steer Cody where you want him to go.
Follow the steps laid out in our City Guide, create your own adventure, or experiment with ambitious coding functions and infinite loops – the choice is yours.
With so many ways to arrange your blocks and shape Cody’s adventure, the only limit is your imagination.
If you make a mistake or send Cody the wrong way, you can go back and ‘debug’ your program, just as you would with a coding sequence.

How kids learn with Cody Block

We think it’s important for kids to understand how the things around them work. Previous generations did this by playing with dolls houses and model aeroplanes, but these days the world runs on computers. So we designed Cody Block to introduce children to computational thinking while harking back to traditional hands-on activities.

Cody is inspired by the Montessori method, educating young ones by letting them explore their wants and needs. And that means play. Teaching kids the basics of coding has been shown to improve their logic and problem-solving skills, while nurturing creativity and resilience. Doing this at an early age enables them to pick things up more naturally.

Algorithms

An algorithm is a set of rules that define a sequence of operations. When children lay out the Building Blocks for Cody to follow, they are actually giving the computer rules on how and where to move.

Sequencing

Sequencing is the specific order in which instructions are performed in an algorithm. It is important that the steps in an algorithm are performed in the correct order — otherwise the algorithm will not work.

Debugging

Mistakes in code are called ‘bugs.’ Debugging is a process that includes identifying the problem and then correcting it. The Building Blocks are tangible and arranged on a surface for the children to see, so it’s easier for them to spot the mistake in their code and debug the program.

Logic

Learning the thinking behind coding teaches children how to tackle large problems by breaking them down into a sequence of smaller, more manageable problems. This logical thinking skill is a powerful tool that can be used in every field and in real life too!
Made with long-lasting materials
Cody Block components are made using responsibly sourced beech wood, a noble wood extensively used in the toy industry for its exceptional qualities in withstanding child’s play. Plastic components are reduced to the bare minimum. Rechargeable battery.

Made to last

Cody comes with a rechargeable battery, and is made using responsibly-sourced beech wood. It’s a nice sturdy material, perfect for making toys that kids want to keep forever, and that last for generations. Like all our products, Cody is built using minimal plastic and painted with natural, child-friendly oils and inks.

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s included in the box?
You’ll get:

1 x Cody car
Two sections connected with magnets.

16 x Building Blocks
(4 x turn left, 4 x turn right, 2 x U turn, 1 x repeat, 2 x record, 2 x play, 1 x stop)

1 x Cody’s City Guide
with instructions, story, and follow-along exercises.

1 x USB-C cable to recharge Cody.
What age is Cody Block suitable for?
We’d recommend Cody Block for children from ages 3-12. But of course every family is different, and every child (and even some grown-ups!) will play with Cody in their own special way.
Does it need extra batteries?
Cody is rechargeable, so you’ll never have to buy new batteries. Plus, it means we all create less waste. Just be sure to detach Cody’s top and bottom once you’re finished playing. It helps the battery last much, much longer!
What is your warranty policy?
We offer a warranty period of up to one year from purchase. This covers any manufacturing defects, but unfortunately, we can’t refund you for anything lost or broken.
Why is RFID technology better than WiFi or Bluetooth?
Like all of our toys, we built Cody Block for children, their children, and their grandchildren.

New internet and app-based technologies are constantly emerging, and if a toy relies on obsolete tech, it gets thrown away when something new comes along. 
We love Cody Block because he can be played with for generations to come. And, he’ll work the same way he did the day he arrived. No need to worry about things like compatibility or signal strength either.
