Woobo is the future of Toys!
Well, Woobo is basically a robot. It’s an “interactive companion” for kids. I started to see ads for this just recently on Instagram and Facebook. I even saw a few videos on Facebooks…all of a sudden. This made me ask myself, “What is Woobo?”
The parent company is putting lots of money into the promotion for this product….even though it hasn’t launched yet…so, I’m guessing this will be a big hit. It may not even be a great toy, but the money that this company is putting out mixed with the fact that the parent company seems to be hitting all the major toy shows in 2017 pretty much spell S.U.C.C.E.S.S. for them. ..given the sales trends of similar toys.
The Woobo.io website says that Woobo can teach your kids:
“Woobo isn’t a teacher in the traditional sense, but rather a peer, helping your child’s imagination and developmental skills flourish through carefully crafted open-ended games, stories, and activities.
“Woobo’s mobile app allows you to launch content remotely, send voice messages, and track information such as the development of vocabulary word clouds. Wherever you are, you always know what Woobo and your child are up to.”
“What’s important to parents? After interviewing a countless number of families with children two challenges were universal: getting kids to fall and stay asleep and creating consistency in the face of hectic schedules.”
Sounds great to me!
According to the website, you can use your mobile app to set different schedules for your child and their Woobo. It can literally be controlled from the app.
You can record a message for your child FROM YOUR PHONE and then have Woobo repeat it to your child! That my friends is super cool. This means that you can calm down a fussy baby or just send some love to your child….all from a distance. I think we all want that.
Who is Woobo for? –
Woobo is for kids 4-12. It doesn’t seem like it will be too hard to use but I think a child 6+ will get the most out of it.
How much is Woobo? –
According to the website, “Woobo will be priced competitively to other smart toys on the market, along with being less expensive than the various social or personal robots.”
Whatever that means!
Is Woobo Multi-lingual? –
Nope, right now Woobo only speaks English! It seems that will not be the case for too long.
Where can I buy Woobo? –
Woobo will be available for purchase as of October 2017. You will be able to pre-order it pretty soon. To find out when and how – you need to visit their site at www.woobo.io
Another good reason to view their site is….
Woobo.io seem to have contests and giveaways from time to time. I’ve spent a lot of time on their site recently doing research and I’ve seen giveaways for a Makey Makey and a Hatchimal.
