Amidst the usual multitude of plush toys, licensed action figures, toy, RC and ride-in/on vehicles, construction kits, books, games, and other indoor and outdoor playthings at Toy Fair 2019, taking place at New York City’s Javits Center this week, are a growing number of toys that teach coding. 

These coding edutainment toys, many aimed at preschoolers, include build-your-own action and art robots, stackable blocks and programmable pets, some designed to teach your youngster how to code before learning how to read.
