Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear. I’m Fred Fishkin. Combine augmented reality with physical magnetic blocks that become part of on screen fun….and you’ve got a very worthwhile educational toy called Plugo that can help kids learn everything from grammar to math. It’s from a company called PlayShifu. It has been on the market with other augmented reality learning toys like the Shifu Orboot smart globe and Minglings…that use AR to bring magnetic figurines to life. With Plugo…there’s a lot to like for both kids …ages four to ten….and parents. But keep in mind that you will need either an iPhone or iPad or an Android device… and that will require adult supervision…to keep an eye on things. The price, under 80 dollars. There’s more info at www.PlayShifu.com.
