Ubooly, advertised as the world’s first Smart Toy, is aimed at luring children away from mindless television programs toward a toy that keeps them engaged while educating.

It can understand, talk with, and respond to children. It teaches them about animals, math, teeth-brushing, good habits, social interaction, and more. It can crack jokes, play, and tell bedtime stories. New games are released monthly.

Ubooly is powered through a smartphone. Users download the app, customize it based on their child’s preferences, and then insert the device into the toy.

Ideal for children aged 4 to 7, the app uses advanced speech-recognition technology and Ubooly can converse in several languages.

The app offers four hours of content with the initial download, after which it will update every month with fresh jokes, games, stories, and adventures.
