KD Group unveiled 'My Loopy' at the New York Toy Fair as a social robot that helps to teach kids as young as four a variety of STEM concepts. While there are many interactive toys that teach some of the basics of science, technology, engineering and math to kids who are of the age to go to school, My Loopy aims to fill a gap in the market by targeting younger kids.
My Loopy from planet Loopitron is a quirky robot companion that stands just three inches tall, but has a large personality that kids will love. My Loopy is equipped with eight sensors, including ones that can detect light, tilt, motion, touch, temperature, proximity, gestures and sounds. Alongside these sensors, the toy uses artificial intelligence to lead smart interactions with kids. For instance, the bot is capable of making context-based interactions, such as saying it's time for sleep when the lights are turned off, or shivering in the cold.
