TROBO is a plush robot that is more than a cuddly toy for kids. Designed by two engineer dads, TROBO comes with an interactive storytelling app which provides games, puzzles and activities all centered around kids learning STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math).

Kids can create their own avatars that resemble them and star in the stories. TROBO can also read the stories to children and answer questions related to how things work such as “what is gravity,” “how do robots work,” and “what makes rockets go?”

Currently TROBO comes in two options, Edison or Curie, with 5 stories and more in the works to come. Find out more about TROBO on its Kickstarter page. As of this writing, they are about halfway through their goal with 13 days left to go.
