Quercetti Peg Brite Coding
Toy Categories: Educational Products
Toy Categories: STEAM
The classic light-up pegs have been upgraded to become a formidable machine to teach children about “computational thinking” and “coding unplugged”. Computational thinking is the ability to break down a complex problem into different parts in order to make it easier to solve. Coding unplugged teaches the basic principles of programming without using electronic devices. There are two ways to play: in the first, you create mosaics following the patterns on the illustrated side of the cards. In the second, you create mosaics following the algorithm on the “coding” side of the card. Once the mosaic is complete, the transparent Peg Brite pegs light up like coloured lightbulbs. Uses 3 AA batteries (not included).
Quercetti: The Value of Made in Italy
70 years after it was founded, the Quercetti family is still the head of the company, following in the same principles of honesty and sharing inherited by its founder Alessandro.
The story of the company is inevitably combined with that of the family and its partners. All these people are passionate about their job, and every day they strive to improve the quality and the procedures so to make the products more competitive and so that the production line can remain in Italy.
We are indeed one of the very few companies who can be proud of controlling the production chain directly. The entire production cycle, from the design of the toy to its delivery, is carried out in Italy, in the city of Turin. Its workers reside locally, and this creates an essential resource in the region.
Today we are a modern and aware company who follow the most stringent security and sustainability rules and regulations, and who can compete with the largest of our international contemporaries. We have 70 years of history and are still going strong.
