Meet Ubooly

This orange guy is Ubooly and it is featured in today’s “5 Questions.” Ubooly was created by a husband-and-wife developer team that decided to bring their skills to the toy market.

As co-founder Carly Gloge said in the Q&A:

Some of our inspiration was Teddy Ruxpin (a talking toy bear introduced in the 1980s). That was really revolutionary for its time. We really wanted to do something like that, that was intelligent and wasn’t something kids would throw out a week after getting it …

The idea is Ubooly learns with the kids. We didn’t really want to produce a toy where it was a tutor. Ubooly’s very curious and excited about learning.
