Techie toys for little ones. I’m Fred Fishkin with BootCamp, your Techstination for gadgets and gear. A company called Kayle Concepts, which has been around for years making plush animals for kids, has added some clever technology to a line called Bluebee Pals. The animals connect via Bluetooth to smartphones or tablets and work with music, games and learning apps. And the mouth moves along with the sound. Founder Laura Jiencke…
“We wanted to create a learning tool that a parent could download any app. And as a bonus, it also takes phone calls.”
Which can be lots of fun when parents or grandparents call. Also for little ones…are little creatures called Zoonicorns…that kids play with along with books and apps. Brand Director J’Net Smith…
“We started with one hard cover book and now we’ve got three apps that are interactive stories.”
And the physical Zoonicorns let kids turn their imaginations loose. You can find us at BootCamp.com. I’m Fred Fishkin.
