Top Toys For Christmas 2016 // Holidays With Hannah

"The Think and Learn Code-a-pillar is a unique and interactive learning toy that allows children to send this caterpillar on different paths. The different segments of the Code-a-pillar can be arranged in any combination, creating a unique path for it to follow. Watch the Code-a-pillar go forward, left or right, with each segment lighting up as the action happens!
This interactive caterpillar challenges children to configure the segments so it can reach targets set up around the room. As the Code-a-pillar goes on its journey, it features fun character sounds, blinking eyes and a motorised head for extra fun! Children can enjoy and discover new and different paths with the Code-a-pillar toy!
Includes 8 segments (3 move forward, 2 turn right 90 degrees, 2 turn left 90 degrees, 1 sound action segment), 2 destination targets and 1 motorised head."
