'DipDip' is the world's first multilingual teaching toy designed to help children learn new languages with ease and confidence. The adorable plush panda uses fun interactive games to help make learning languages less tedious and challenging for children, as well as their parents.

By harnessing the power of the right brain, DipDip uses a unique gaming system and an accompanying app to communicate with the user. All a child has to do is press a button and DipDip will begin sharing an immersive story in multiple languages. By speaking, playing and listening to the panda story, children can gradually improve their language skills and progress through various levels of difficulty.

Children can use the toy independently or with a parent for a shared family learning experience. The multilingual teaching toy contains the audio of professional native speakers in nine different languages, including English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Korean, Japanese, Chinese and Cantonese.
