TROBOs are plushy robot friends wirelessly connected to your iPad or iPhone. Children hear TROBO's voice coming from the plushies, which brings the dolls to life. They are CUDDLY by design, as they are companions first and teachers second. TROBOs read digital storybooks (about STEM - see below) on the device to your child. TROBOs exist as characters in the stories. The stories have the child’s name and likeness in them, so as the child goes on the adventure with TROBO, he or she builds an emotional connection with the content being taught.
