The Fisher price code-a-pillar is an awesome toy for kids ages 3 and up. My husband and I both love playing with it just as much as the kids. The starter set comes with the head and 8 segments. Each segment tells the codeapillar what to do. By rearranging the segments kids can make the codeapillar go in different paths. Each set also includes a start and end pad for children to try to preplan their codeapillars route. The 8 segments that come with the starter set are two right turns, two left turns, 3 straights and 1 music. This is lots of fun and learning for the whole family!
