Cyberhero League Toys and Games Help Kids to Make Real Global Change

Cyberhero League was unveiled as a new line of toys at this year's North American International Toy Fair, designed to empower kids to use technology in ways that are healthy and smart.

The Cyberhero League products come from the mind of award-wining media psychologist Dr. Dana Klisanin and aim to introduce a new game genre called Augmented Imaginary Play, or AIP for short. Some of the newly unveiled products include the Cybershield Bluetooth-enabled activity tracker, which can be used alongside the Cyberhero League app for playing a Hero Adventure game. Kids will be prompted to achieve goals that promote learning and at the same time, make positive contributions to nonprofit organizations that focus on issues like hunger, clean water and sanitation.

The line also includes the Cyberhero Cape and educational Cyberquest game, which also have the potential to turn kids into real-world heroes fighting for positive change.
