03 Nov Smart Letters from Marbotic
Marbotic launches new connected toy Smart Letters designed to change the way kids learn to read and write
Smart Letters is a wooden alphabet of letters, connected to downloadable apps available on Apple designed for three to seven year old kids. As a child learns to read, they begin to make connections between the shapes and sounds of letters. Each wooden letter interacts with the apps on a tablet, helping to build a picture of the alphabet and early word formation in a child’s mind. The bringing together of both the physical and digital aspect of learning produces an enhanced overall learning experience for kids, teachers and parents alike.
This learning toy works! It is easy to use, the download is straightforward and the smart letters are easy for small hands to hold and put against the screen. A well thought out modern learning toy that will help your child to learn in an integrated way.
Founder, Marie Merouze comments:
“It’s well known that the interaction with tablets stimulates kids’ brains a lot, but learning doesn’t just happen in the brain. The mind, body, and emotions are all involved. I am extremely passionate about the way we teach our children and I found that there was nothing taking advantage of both traditional methods of learning and digital technologies. Through Smart Letters I believe we have created the ultimate interactive learning experience. We are looking to change the way kids learn and develop.”
Smart Letters will MSRP at $54.90 / 49.90€ but is available on Kickstarter at the early bird price of $39 / 34€.The product has three, free downloadable apps. The first app, combined with the wooden letters, focuses on the alphabet and vocabulary, enabling kids to discover hundreds of words in their own language. Two further apps provide a platform for kids to absorb everything they need to know about letters, their shapes, the sounds they make and word formation, with a spelling test element to reinforce new learnings.
