There's an increasing amount of educational, interactive connected toys on the market. But many of them still aren't a replacement for the cuddly, soft bedtime toys that kids already love. The Oliba connected toy attachment and app offer the perfect solution.

The Oliba is a round plastic owl that can be attached to the arm of a stuffed animal or doll. Once connected, the Oliba attachment communicates with a smartphone app to transmit and receive information. This means that the Oliba-connected toy can always be found around the house thanks to the Oliba's GPS locator, cutting out the familiar, frantic bedtime search for the teddy bear.

The Oliba app also contains stories and lullabies that the Oliba attachment's speaker can tell or sing. It can also record a parent telling a story or singing a song that can be played back to kids as they fall asleep.
