About Them: Ubooly was founded in 2012 in Boulder, Colorado by Isaac Squires and Carly Gloge. Ubooly was funded through Kickstarter, and is alumni of the TechStars’ 2012 class. Our company’s mission is to create the most entertaining (and cuddly) automated learning experience for children.Ubooly is the brand new stuffed animal that powered by your iPhone or iPod touch. Ubooly not only listens to kids, but also has a lot to tell your child. Ubooly loves to play interactive games, “choose your own adventure” stories, and hilarious jokes.
Ubooly is a fun interacting toy that works on iPhone 3GS, 4, 4s, 5, iPod Touch 4G and iPod Touch 5. Geared to ages of 4-9. However my 3-year-old has fun with his. We limit his time on it, but he gets a few hours a day playing with it. This will drain your battery on your phone fast if you run a lot of apps on it. Which is why we went to the touch instead. They spend hours making him laugh, talk, interact, with over fifty interactive adventures, more than 90 jokes. The more your kids use this toy, the smarter Ubooly will get. The snoring and sleeping part has me cracking up for hours. The voice used it’s just to priceless for sure. I honestly think my husband and I have fun teaching it things to tell our toddlers to do haha. Even though the age is geared to 4-9 my 3-year-old and my special needs guy has fun interacting with him. I love the best part our kids will sit there and talk to him for hours and he will listen to him, and respond back on what he thinks, totally awesome toy.
The toy itself is super easy to use. Just turn on the phone, download the app and place your code, slide the phone into the device and watch it wake up and watch your kids eyes just light up. The Ubooly guy itself is made with great quality material. He doesn’t shed any material off him. He is easy to zip and unzip so any kid can do it themselves. The white part under the face is where the speaker is, where the voice comes in and out. The Ubooly before the phone is in, super light, and even with the phone in, doesn’t add to much weight to it.
Things this fun toy can do. It has over 50 interactive adventures, more than 90 jokes. He also plays games, wakes up, goes to sleep, snores, tells stories, listens to your kids, learns from them, and they learn from him. Ubooly will know their child’s name, like the same: colors, interests, food, hobbies. I would like to add you may never see your phone again, suggest using something you don’t need for a while. Love the light that turns on his face, so if your kids fall asleep with him they have a night-light. Nothing like a Ubooly telling your kids a goodnight story!
