Abstract

A number of commercial toys have been developed and marketed for young children that purportedly support the development of computational thinking and coding skills. However, we have yet to specify how these toys are supposed to support computational thinking. In this poster, we provide an initial examination of designed features in 20 commercial toys marketed to 5 and 6-year-old children.
