Tactual exploration of a physical representation of the digital game grid enables ‘mental mapping’, which is required to analyse, process, and check the steps/commands to complete the coding challenges in the apps. These files have been specifically designed for the Ballyland Code apps and you can 3D print them yourself (or create your own tactile grid). Please note that these mini models of the Ballylanders have limited features, and no working parts: Ballicopter’s rotor and Wheelie’s wheels don’t turn. Large scale models of the Ballylanders, with more detailed features (for tactual exploration), can be 3D printed from other files on the website.
