Grumblies are tech toys for kids that aim to bridge the gap between the real and digital world using tablets and other mobile devices. The small robots are social and express their emotions with a range of changing facial expressions, making the toys handy companions for learning math, reading, spatial reasoning and logic. As well as being able to interact with kids, the egg toys also interact with one another, giving positive feedback throughout the learning process.

The tech toys are compatible with both iOS and Android devices and make use of gameplay apps for the purposes of team building and other collaborative activities.

Since the egg-shaped toys are actually small enough to fit inside of an actual egg carton, they're ideal for classroom use, since many of them can be stored at once.
