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.”

Thinker-Tinker’s investors include Techstars and Comcast’s LIFT Labs Accelerator. The company was a Techcrunch “Top Pick” in the Internet of Things and Robotics categories, and was a finalist at the 2020 SXSW Innovation Awards.

By 2023, the global smart toys market is projected to reach $18 billion.
