Let’s face it, as much as we want our kids to be playing with physical toys, it is rather inevitable that they are going to end up playing with tablets. I know as a mom, I try to place rules that limit my daughter’s screen time, as well as ensure that the games she is playing with on the family iPad are educational & meaningful.
With Pai Technology’s Augmented Reality (AR) Toys, not only do they provide an interactive educational experience, but they engage kids in such a way that they want to keep playing AND learning!
We recently got to test out two products from Pai Technology – Ocean Pets & Cube-tastic. Both toys were really neat; however since my daughter is a huge fan of fish & other sea creatures, she really took to Ocean Pets quickly.
First we read the instructions & downloaded the app. Then she used the non-toxic, food-safe putty to shape into different ocean animals.
Once the clay animals are done, you can take the ocean pets & scan them with your iPad to watch your creature come to life in augmented reality!
You get to read fun facts about your pet, learn to take care of it & play special games!
Cube-tastic is a 3×3 Puzzle Cube that uses AR technology to solve a puzzle cube with step-by-step tutorials.
It’s a great brain teaser toy for kids, as there are countless combinations that you can do that exercise both their hands AND brain!
