Pasadena, California – Octobo, the Tech Toy that Teaches has been named a 2020 National Parenting Product Awards (NAPPA) winner for its innovation, attention to quality, and educational properties.
Each year, NAPPA’s independent panel of expert judges and parents stringently test and evaluate hundreds of submissions and choose only the best of the best. Products are judged on innovation, safety, quality, educational value and the degree to which they assist busy parents and families.
“It’s an adorable stuffed octopus animal with a pocket for a tablet that pairs the interactive app and the toy via bluetooth. I love the complete kit that comes with 2 books and 2 sets of coins that go along with the stories. It’s an impressive package.” says one Octobo evaluator. “My daughter’s favorite thing is when Octobo sings the ABC’s at the end of the Letter Search story. She’s learned what button to push after it’s over to replay the song. She also loves feeding it different fish. I think she’s determined to get it to like the green fish (it only likes the blue).”
Evaluators comments continued...
“I’ve never seen anything like this toy before! I was so excited to try it out.”
“The illustrations and graphics are colorful and well done! I love the design of the characters and all the short videos that play as you place coins in the bowl. The sounds are very cute as well. Everything about this toy is adorable!”
“I like that it’s teaching her letters, colors, shapes, feelings, patterns and so much more. Even though it’s technically screen time, it’s still engaging and educational.”
