|What problem are you solving?
|Herokins is a toy that strongly promotes active play. Our goal is to help cure the disconnect modern technology has brought to modern households. Through a balanced use of technology we’re aiming to increase quality time for parents and children while decreasing screen time.
Through the power of stories children develop key skills such as cause/effect relationship or inferential thinking which support and foster the child developmental process. Kids keep pursuing their quest for independence while growing in a responsible way.
Not only does the adapting story-concept helps parents to become even better story tellers, it also opens up the gateway to a new, engaging way of teaching kids.
|What is your solution?
|It is a revolutionary wearable toy that takes children (age 3 to 6) into adventures. Herokins are little wearable superheroes that connect to your mobile device, allowing you and your child to interact through captivating stories, bringing magic to everyday situations.Through a speaker and LED lights, the smart-toy creates a relationship with children through a variety of adventures.
While playing, children will learn important life lessons and explore the real world around them.
Cutting edge technology translates children’s behavior, motions and decisions into a captivating storyline.
The most amazing part: Your child’s behavior will influence the storyline, making this his or her very own personal adventure.
