Designed by a mom, for families. Octobo is created by Thinker-Tinker, a team of passionate designers and parents in Los Angeles, California. Octobo and the Octobo App is more than just a toy. This educational companion provides a new digital play platform that turns sedentary screen time into meaningful play time.
Using new technology, this learning companion introduces more than 10 ways to play and learn with interactive story books and tokens, to promote fundamental skills in children ages 0-7.
Developmental benefits by age:
Infants primarily learn about their world through sensory experiences. Octobo’s cuddly body and squishy arms welcome our little ones to explore and grab, helping them improve their fine- and gross-motor control.
Children can learn about emotions by observing Octobo’s reactions to different interactions with him, such as poking Octobo’s eye or wiggling his arms. Octobo's Underwater Adventure storybook and app supports early cognitive learning through developmentally appropriate tasks and puzzles.
Our ABCs storybook, Octobo and the Great Letter Search, and its accompanying app is designed by educational experts and experienced game designers. Kids can learn everything from letters to spelling in a fun and engaging way, all while further improving their emotional recognition and prosocial behaviors.
After kids master letter recognition and basic vocabulary, it's time for some spelling challenges! In our spelling game mode, kids can play collaborative spelling games with others and see how many words they can spell out.
