Award-Winning Children's book — Smart Teddy

Smart Teddy

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.

He was designed as an alternative to parking kids in front of a tablet or TV, a real teammate for parents.

Smart Teddy is an innovative toy controlled by parents through a mobile app who 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.
