Product & Content

What does a ToyBot do?
A ToyBot combines new school technology with old school play to help kids learn in a more engaging and interactive way - without screens. For more background, please see the TEDx Talk: Can a Voice-Interactive Toy Transform Education?
What’s unique about a ToyBot?
Beyond the fact that our experiences are screen free, we're intentional about actively-engaging young learners. Specifically, we help kids build confidence (children often play the role of teacher), provide agency, and strengthen human connections (most games can be played in a group).
What skills does a ToyBot promote?
ToyBots were designed to help kids build language, social, and cognitive skills at the age when they matter most.
What ages is a ToyBot designed for?
We designed ToyBots for kids between the ages of 3 to 9+ (and the grown ups that support them). It's helpful when kids can speak in short sentences, which can vary a lot by child.
Does the ToyBot speak other languages besides English?
Not at this time. However, some games allow children to explore different English accents.
How do I know what games there are?
You can search "SayKid" on the Amazon Alexa Skills store. In addition, we've created an Learning Library that allows you to find / sort interactive experiences. Note that we’re constantly updating / adding new experiences!
