FREE App: Interactive Educational Toy – Ubooly

Ubooly – Educational Toy

After reviewing so many apps, I have been thinking how to better integrate mobile apps into kids learning. Many apps are doing great job in making the learning interactive, incorporating multimedia materials. But there is one area I have not seen as much as I’d like, it is to integrate the mobile learning into the off screen activities. I tried searching Apps for off screen fun, I started featuring Off Screen Activities with Apps… but I do want to see more. Ubooly is one of the first toys I found that integrate on-screen and off-screen learning, and I am excited to share it with you.

Ubooly is a smart toy that talks. It is a cute stuffed animal. Powered by the free app, it will talk to your child, addressing him/her by his/her name. Ubooly tells jokes and stories, having tons of play ideas, such as an imaginary trip to the sea fighting pirates. If you go to the Ubooly store, sign up an account with your child’s name, age and interest, you will receive customized educational contents for each child. For my 10-year-old, we got Space, Ocean, Season, Spanish, and Astronomy. For younger kids, you may have Alphabet, Spelling and Counting. Some other lessons available are Addition, Division, Human Body, Music.Ubooly Toy App Recommended by iGameMom

What is interesting about this toy is the interaction between the toy and the child. Kids will be excited to hear their toys talking to them and addressing them by names. I especially like it making kids move. In the imaginative trip to the sea, Ubooly actually told my son “pick me up”, “Now we have to turn left”, “Oh lean towards the right quickly”… all are part of the action of the story they are experiencing together. It is a great imagination experience!

Play with UboolyWe have not get chance to experience all the educational lessons, but I liked what we learned so far. The first unit of Ocean is about the sea water. Starting by asking kids about the smell at the beach, Ubooly told us it is the smell of salted water, and guided us through a science experiment – we made an egg float in the water by adding salt to the water.Ubooly Toy - Salt water experiment

Another great use of the toy is for the car ride. Ubooly has so many jokes and stories, it is non-stop and never repeats – at least so far for us. There are so many interesting things Ubooly can do, we still trying to find out. Here is a video of Ubooly from the developer:

Ubooly the educational toy is available on Amazon. Designed for kids age 4 to 10, Ubooly App works on iPhone or iPod. It is free on App Store. The Android version is coming soon. 

I highly recommend you try the Free app, even you are not planning to buy the toy or purchase lessons from the store.  With the free app, there are still some stories and jokes available worth a try. The Amazon link below leads to the toy.

    Hmm it looks like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any tips for novice blog writers? I’d certainly appreciate it.

    I would love to try Ublooy. My kids 6 & 8 would be a wonderful audience for this app. I have search long and hard for all educational apps for my children and I agree with the igame mom blogger that there are some but not enough with things to do interactive. I would love an opportunity to see a Ubooly toy in action and see how it helps my children not only learn and move, also use it to give them what they want to learn about which is incredible!! This app toy is one of the most inventive things I’ve heard of to date. I would not only watch my children learn but I would put reviews as many places as possible. I appreciate the opportunity.
    Thank you, Jennifer

    • I agree. This is the most interactive and educational toy I have seen.
