Tara Linney, in an Edutopia post, provides an overview of both coding and programming. She writes--
"Programming is about the logic that goes into building a program. The blocks already exist -- they just have to be placed in the correct order to get the program to work."
"Coding...has to do with the syntax, the fine details that allow a computer script to work."

Coji the Coding Robot (ages 4+) by WowWee
WowWee sent me a Coji to try out. It was a lot of fun! Feels a lot like real-life Scratch Jr. and also includes a way to move it via an on-screen trackpad. It includes memory games such as a maze, a sequencing game, and even teaches how to create macros!
A video of my test of Coji follows!
