Smart Teddy is an innovative toy controlled by parents through a mobile app that can lead your little ones through educational games and activities designed to promote literacy and math skills and build good habits like personal hygiene, picking up their toys, and managing their emotions. Being a parent these days is no picnic. Between work, keeping the house in order, and giving the kids the time and attention they need, it feels like we can barely stay on top of our responsibilities, let alone take care of ourselves or squeeze in some quality time with our partners. Wouldn’t it be nice if we had someone in our corner? That’s the idea behind Smart Teddy, a new device in a shape of traditional beloved soft toy.
Smart Teddy is hypoallergenic, his electronics are designed to be safe from curious little fingers, and he isn’t equipped with a camera or microphone, so you can rest assured that your children are in safe hands — well, paws. He was designed as an alternative to parking kids in front of a tablet or TV, a real teammate for parents.
“Setting up the teddy with the app was easy and straightforward. The app itself is well-designed and intuitive to navigate.”
“There are a lot of features ranging from activities which the parent plays from the app to encourage the kiddos (i.e. Teddy says it’s time to brush your teeth, time to take a nap, etc.) to short stories and games.”
“I love that there is new content every day and more is continuously added with wi-fi updates.”
“One really great feature is the longer story at night. The daytime stories are usually under 4 minutes, but the nighttime story is double or triple in length giving my daughter adequate time to wind down.”
“The games are fun and interactive. Some are advanced (like the riddles), so they will be something for my daughter to grow into.”
“I really like the large library of content. The stories are all new to us and the games are fun to play together.”
“You can select favorite stories on the app that play when your child presses the “favorites” paw. Each paw can be pressed to cue certain scripts. One of the four paws is a sensor that is activates popular routines when you hold it over an included smart sticker. We like the “workout buddy” sticker the best. It motivates exercise and movement in a fun way.”
“It’s a very well-thought out toy with educational and routine-building components.”
“I like the wide array of activities included and the very well-designed app.”
