Caterpillar Train - Missions for the Code-A-Pillar toy



The Code-A-Pillar was a hit toy of Christmas 2016.  The toy helps teach children the art of coding and is super fun to play with.  The challenge with any toy as the months go on is to find a way to keep the toy fresh.  With Code-A-Pillar this is even more important because by keeping children advancing with it allows them to learn even more.  With this post we want to highlight some of the ways to expand the Code-A-Pillar game from what is beyond the box.



Toylab's Caterpillar Train!
The Caterpillar Train game is not an official game of Fisher Price its just one that a blogger at Toylab has had fun with and wanted to share.

The idea of the Caterpillar game is to add a fun story while creating interesting challenges.  The Caterpillar Train game involves using the Code-A-Pillar to deliver characters or packages to different locations while going over various obstacles.  We have found that Disney's small Tsum Tsums fit great between the Code-A-Pillar's antennae allowing it to carry a Tsum Tsum from one place to another.  My kids also seem to enjoy getting a map and making a room (Typically our kitchen) resemble the geography present on the map.  The game combines the Code-A-Pillar with my kids favorite stuffed animals for a really fun time.  I also reward my kids with hershey kisses when they complete a mission without crashing the Caterpillar Train.  Healthier options would likely be better.


Your child acts as the conductor helping set up the course of the world famous Caterpillar Train.
