Cozmo is the educational robot for kids and adults to learn to creatively code. This toy is equipped with artificial intelligence and has the basic ability to remember, learn and interact. Using facial recognition technology, Cozmo will remember and react enthusiastically every time he sees us. The robot is constructed from around 300 parts, which are used in four motors allowing movement, an LCD screen displaying the current “mood”, and a camera monitoring the robot’s environment. In fact, Cozmo is a game-playing machine offering us games such as Quick Tap, Keepaway and Memory Match. He’s always ready for action!

As we learn best by teaching others, playing with Photon is all about developing the robot’s skills. It is an interactive educational robot that introduces children to the world of new technologies. Photon offers a great opportunity to extend your child’s cognitive abilities, logical thinking and empathy. When you first take the robot out of the box it cannot do anything at all. It is the child’s task to teach it everything from scratch: to recognize words, touch, sounds, etc. The robot can be programmed in thousands of ways. The limit to the fun with Photon is only your child’s patience.

Children dream about having their own pets, but we cannot always afford a real dog. However, if you want to give your child the pleasure of a small barking gift, you can choose an interactive pet. The Chip is an intelligent robot dog. It behaves like a real dog, reacts to commands and touch, and plays and learns how to behave. Thanks to the application, you can also teach him new tricks, give virtual snacks, change voice commands, and remotely control the robot dog and program new functions. Woof woof! When will the first lesson be?

What to look for when choosing interactive toys?

Parents value interactive toys that can be used on many levels of child development. In times of extraordinary innovation and technological development, the best we can give our children is the ability to quickly adapt to new conditions, solve problems and develop emotional intelligence. Therefore, the best choice is a toy that gives the child the opportunity to improve all of these areas. From now on, dear parents, you do not have to do it alone.

What toy do you think your child would be best friends with?
