It's incredible how these Play-i Robots are finally really bridging the gap between cutting-edge technology and toys as a means for entertaining children. Still rather recently, many youngsters have experienced a jump between their teddy bears and introductions to touchscreen tablets, yet these adorable droids offer the tactility of the first with the stimulation of the second.

What these amusing automatons accomplish -- in addition to keeping kids engaged -- is the encouragement and development of a full range of valuable skills that are necessary for all moldable young minds, and especially in an age when computer literacy is of optimal importance. Little ones can learn to operate the Play-i Robots, Yana and Bo, through a process that enables them to program the animated devices with the help of interactive touch interfaces.
