EdTech Toys for Kids
Thinker-Tinker is an EdTech company that’s changing the way kids experience “screen time.”
In the U.S., 85% of kids 8 years and under use mobile devices on a daily basis. Even 54% of preschoolers own their own smartphone or tablet.
Thinker-Tinker creates unique learning experiences by incorporating these devices into interactive plush companions. This enables kids to absorb digital content while engaging with a physical toy.
As Kidscreen, which reports on the children’s entertainment industry, noted, “Thinker-Tinker has created a next-generation stuffed animal.”
