When TechStars alums Carly Gloge and Isaac Squires realized the mass toy industry had stopped caring, they stepped up to create Ubooly, a furry companion that transforms smartphones or tablets into voice-commanded companions that teach and play.
Their goal in creating this ground-breaking play machine? Building a toy that kids will play with for a long time, with content that keeps kids active and learning. Unlike most toys produced by the industry, Ubooly is designed for longevity: Kids play with it 11x longer on average, and new content is added every month. We love supporting a toy brand that’s meant to be kept, not replaced!
Just wrap Ubooly around an iPod Touch, smartphone or tablet, and they’re instantly transformed into interactive play machines, capable of everything from pirate adventures to teeth-brushing lessons. Ubooly comes prepped for a rough-and-tumble lifestyle: It’s machine-washable and protects devices from drops as high as a three-story building (though we’re sure yours won’t fall that far!)
If you’re a retailer interested in carrying Ubooly, sign up for Fitzroy Toys.
