The best coding toys for kids 2022

Children coding

by Emily Thorpe |

We're big fans of tech toys that help children learn new skills and broaden their horizons, and one trend that continues to grow is coding toys.

Quite simply, these toys help teach your youngster to code in some form or another. Coding is the process of using a programming language to get a computer or device to do what you want it to. Apps, smartphone operating systems, web browsers, websites (just like Mother&Baby) and more are all written in code that enable them to function.

Now although coding toys for kids won't have them creating their own websites from the off-set, they do encourage your little one to think logically and to start understanding how to build blocks of code. Coding also helps to teach, critical thinking, spatial concepts, sequential logic and teamwork.

Plus in a world as tech-driven as ours, it's certainly no bad thing to introduce your little one to the world of coding. Who knows - they may be the next Bill Gates!

If you're interested in buying your child a coding toy, here are eight of our favourites.
