CogniToys Dino: The Interactive Learning Toy

Wouldn't any child love a dinosaur for Christmas? Well, now they can with the amazing CogniToys Dino educational toy, that is much more than just a regular toy.

The CogniToys Dino is a companion that learns and grows with children - they are friends who answer questions, tell stories, practice spelling, play games and even lead guided meditations -- all without the need for a screen. 

Did you know that on average, children ask around 300 questions a day. The CogniToys Dino will be available for every question and can keep up with the mind of a child, giving them information and answers to any questions they might have. Answers are always child-friendly and Dinos don’t just respond, they respond intelligently.

The Wi-Fi-enabled Dino engages children in interactive conversation and it gets smarter with each automatic content update. The set up is so easy too. After loading the batteries and switching it on, the smartphone app walks you through the set-up. Once connected, the Dino no longer requires the use of a smartphone for playtime. 

CogniToys come packed with tons of activities including stories, games, meditations, jokes and more to keep children entertained for hours on end without the need for a screen. By remembering a child's name and favourite things (colours, animals, sports, etc.), CogniToys provide the kind of personalised play experience every child loves and will grow to adore with their very own Dino. 

Not just educational, Dino some with emotional intelligence too. If a child says they are scared, the Dino encourages them to speak to an adult they trust. Or, if a child tells the Dino they’re sad, the toy may suggest meditation or listening to a funny joke to lift their spirits. 

There are so many aspects of the CogniToys Dino toy that I love. I love that you can name your very own Dino - T named ours Tiddles. I love that he responds in a way that children will understand and even explains words he mentions that he thinks children might struggle with. 

But I mostly love that he helps children. Ask him a mathematical question, and he will answer. Ask him to spell something, and he will. Ask him to play you a bit of music and he'll pull out a classical track from his memory and get playing.
