If you’re like us, your out of date iPhone kicks around the house. Up until now, it’s mostly sat in a desk drawer collecting dust. However, a Boulder Colorado company has found an amazing way to entertain your kids and use that lonely iPhone (or your current one!) and educate our kids!
Ubooly was founded in 2012 in Boulder, Colorado by husband and wife team Isaac Squires and Carly Gloge. Their company’s mission is to create the most entertaining (and cuddly) automated learning experience for children. Ubooly is the brand new stuffed animal is made to work on your iPhone 3GS, 4, 4s, 5, iPod Touch 4G and iPod Touch 5.
Geared to ages of 4-9. Ubooly not only listens to our kids, but also has a lot to tell them! Ubooly loves to play interactive games, “choose your own adventure” stories, and very funny jokes (my 12 year old laughed out loud at a few of Ubooly’s comments!).
Our 10 year old son (while a bit too old for toy by this description) – LOVES it! He especially loves to go on the adventures. Ubooly tells hysterical stories (not the usual boring kid tales – see the video below) and – I had some trouble accessing some functionality, but my 12 year old stepped right in and fixed it, so not sure that’s a flaw, but a user error! ha ha!
