Most children are curious naturalists and have an innate appreciation of animals.
We work with animal charities, rescuers and educators to achieve toy animal products that better reflect the real animals they depict.
We aim to make animal toy ownership more enduring and meaningful.
Facts should be fun. The aniBotics team co design our products with children.
We value their imaginative input - shaping our experiences to make our education invisible.
They act like a system of "Bordometers" - setting off alarms in us when they aren't fully engaged and entertained.
Parents buy one of our animal toys. Your child needs help to know how to rehabilitate their orphaned animal. The image above is the current baby elephant prototype being used to perfect our system in research with children.
First of all the toy is timid and doesn't interact too much. By connecting with a smart speaker they get access to lessons from an animal expert. That expert - who has a fantastic sense of humour - is a child from the same country as the animal itself.
Each lesson unlocks new features and behaviours in your toy. These can then be used independently of the smart speaker. The toy evolves over a period of several weeks, until it's confident enough to be released back into the wild (or if they can't be parted - become the child's lifelong friend!)
