Seedling's 'Parker' is a cuddly, AR-infused teddy bear that helps bring the imagination of a child to life. The adorable teddy bear serves as a child-friendly alternative to augmented reality, which typically takes the form of bulky helmets and intimidating robotics. Parker is different, as it uses a familiar companion to teach kids about empathy and problem solving within the world of augmented reality.

Complete with various accessories and AR capabilities, this interactive experience will reward children for being kind, as the better the job they do caring for Parker, the more praise and points they receive. This toy serves as an example of the growing demand to include children and youth in the creation of AR-related products.
