This post about the new interactive educational toy is brought to you by our partnership with Ubooly. When Ubooly was created, Rachel wanted to provide children with an interactive and engaging tech toy that would be both entertaining and educational. With our world going more and more hi-tech, our children will be living with technology in most aspects of their lives. Our job as parents is to let them have exposure to technology in safe, educational ways when possible. When I heard about Ubooly as a concept, I was intrigued and very willing to do a review of it- my kids love playing on my phone, tablet or laptop, but I want to be sure I can control and limit what they are exposed to. Ubooly marries what the kids want and what the parents are looking for- in a fuzzy orange package. With Ubooly Lab the parent now has full control of customizing their child’s playtime!

Ubooly is a cute, fuzzly little stuffed friend who has a little zipper on it’s head. That’s where your iPod Touch or iPhone goes. This is one of my favorite features of this toy- you don’t have to remove the case from your phone (at least not a Speck case or CM4′s Q Card Case–any snug fitting case seems to work, even the iPhone 5)….so you don’t have to remove the protection from the device before you put it into the toy. The toy itself is a stuffed animal so that’s more protection. It’s simple, sweet and adorable- but also very neutral and very appealing for it’s simplicity in appearance. Ubooly will soon be here in pink and green as well!

My kids would gladly spend most of their day playing with Ubooly. They have a whole schedule worked out for who gets to sleep with Ubooly (sans phone) and who gets first dibs when they are able to play with the Ubooly. I think it’s pretty cool that it’s holding the interest of 3 kids who are 7, 5 and 3 all at once. They are having fun, learning and even learning some things along the way, and most importantly, they are LEARNING NEW JOKES so I don’t have to listen to the old Knock Knock, “Orange you glad I didn’t say banana” for the 910349032849032 billionth time!

Some Ubooly Lab facts:
Ubooly will know their child’s name, like the same: colors, interests, food, hobbies etc. (You can have more than one child listed in your Ubooly app, which is great. They just have to recognize their own name in the drop down or have you help with that)

This video shows 2 Uboolys talking to one another. It’s adorable and funny, partly why I’m sharing. But it also shows the different ways you can customize them to your liking- which I can’t do side by side since we have just the one Ubooly. Aren’t they great??

If you are like me and like your kids to be learning when ‘connected’ or ‘plugged in,’ you may want to check out the Ubooly. You can find Ubooly at Toys R Us . Ubooly will also be available soon for Google Play!

Of course, one lucky reader will receive an Ubooly plus a $30 Ubooly Lab credit so you can get a really full experience of the Ubooly and lesson/interest packs!

  • Thank you for posting the picture of the zipper, I kept seeing how it worked and wondering how children would use it without the phone falling out. I thought maybe it snapped or had a magnet or something.

    • Nope- your device will be snug as a bug in there. AND you can leave the case on. Even my iPhone 5 fits w a case!
