Plush Toy Monitors Health and Wellness of Children During Play
Doodle aims to bridge the cap between what parents want and babies need
Babies and toddlers are a joy but a challenge. One of the biggest challenges is assessing their health and wellness when they’re not yet able to respond informatively to questions about their health and wellness.
Enter Doodle, a plush toy designed to track your child’s health while he or she is playing with it, or even playing nearby.
Each Doodle toy—currently available in a multicolored stuffed animal best described as “probably a dog”—contains sensors that track a child’s body temperature, heart rate, sleeping patterns and stress level, then transmit those via a monitor in a child’s room. The monitor connects to both a dedicated tablet and an app on the parent’s smart device, which tracks the averages of all four metrics.
