iPhones And iPads Become Fluffy Interactive Stuffed Animals
A revolutionary hybrid toy turns your smart device into an enjoyable furry friend kids can learn with and love.
The remarkable intuitive design of iDevices can now be experienced in furry plush toys for kids as creative agency Carnation Group unveils Totoya Creatures, a hybrid toy composed of a friendly monster pet brought to life by your iPhone or iPad.
Totoya Creatures offer a wide variety of “edutainment” features for children to enjoy, such as playing chimes and tunes, repeating voices with effects, tactile commands and touch controls (tap, pan, pinch, swipe, or hold), and interactive features where kids can “draw” on the creatures’ faces, use them as pillows, and scratch and comb their fur.
There are four creatures available: two for the iPad and two for the iPhone, and is compatible with the 3rd and 4th generation iPod touch as well. The Totoya creatures app is available for free in the Apple Store.
Gergo Csikos, Head of Ideas at Carnation Group, shares the design experience behind Totoya Creatures:
When kids interact with Totoya it reacts to everything they do. It blinks, makes sounds and even talks back. As the iPad is safely protected “in the belly of the beast,” kids can throw and punch the creature and not only will it withstand the ordeal but it will communicate its feelings. The more interaction, the more fun.
