Ubooly: A super-smart, super-cool toy giveaway!

Posted Jun 05 2013 7:02am
Meet Ubooly!

Meet Ubooly! He totally sent himself to me to review and hooked me up with some credits to Ubooly Lab and sponsored this post. Thanks, dude!

When I was at Mom 2.0, I met a lovely young lady named Rachel, who told me briefly about the smart toy she worked with, called Ubooly . Then, after Mom 2.0, Rachel sent me an email and flattered me, and asked me if I’d like to review said smart toy. Well, Rachel soon learned that I like flattery. And smart toys for my kiddos. So within a couple of weeks, Ubooly arrived at our house!

Ubooly is a toy that uses your iPhone (3GS, 4, 4S, 5) or iPod touch ( 4th or 5th gen) and the free Ubooly app to create a fun learning and play experience for  your child. You simply start up the app and slide your device into Ubooly’s fluffy, protective body. See?


Just tap on Ubooly’s face to wake him up!

The Ubooly pet is pretty cool on his own, but now there’s even more to be excited about! In addition to the original fun Ubooly came with, Ubooly now has his own LAB, aptly named the Ubooly Lab . The Ubooly Lab is where you can purchase credits to download customized lessons for your kiddo (created by elementary teachers, whoop whoop!) so you as a parent can point your kiddo’s educational playtime in the direction you want it to go in! For Sophie, I downloaded Oceans, the Human Body, Grammar, Spelling 6-9, and  Addition. But there are several more to choose from on the Ubooly Lab! This short video does a great job explaining how amazing Ubooly Lab is:

Sophie was immediately enchanted with Ubooly as soon as we fired him up. Ubooly asked her if she wanted to go on an adventure, hear a story, or hear a joke. They went on an adventure (I believe there were pirates involved, I know her bed was the boat!) and then he told her a joke. She loooooves the jokes! See?

So, Ubooly’s funny, but the good news is all the fun and games add up to learning! The Oceans lesson has a neat little science experiment, and I absolutely love the grammar lessons. It makes learning parts of speech (pretty new to Sophie) lots of fun to learn. The math lessons are great for keeping up math facts over the summer (or studying them anytime.) Ubooly really has put a new spin on learning in my house, and Sophie really loves her super-smart, funny friend. Ubooly occupied her time well last week when she was already out of school but Joshua was still in school. It was nice for her to have a funny, articulate playmate to take a couple of imaginary adventures with when I was busy with Jonah or housework.

She’s really looking forward to completing some of the lesson packs and earning coins so she can customize her Ubooly by “buying” him some sweet accessories. I’m really hoping she goes for glasses and a sweet mustache, myself!

So guess what? Ubooly is a generous smart toy, and he wants to come play at YOUR house, too! Well, one of your houses. That’s right, one lucky winner is going to be the proud owner of their own Ubooly pet (valued at $29.95) and 30 credits to the Ubooly Lab!  Here’s how to enter!
