When it comes to smart toy design, it doesn't get any better than Kiri. The product strikes a perfect balance of educational technology and playtime, all the while not overstimulating children with an overbearing and distraction-heavy screen. The toy is Montessori-powered and screen-free. It boasts the capability of teaching children languages — including English, Spanish and Mandarin Chinese, STEM, and more.
The toy relies on "sound, touch, and repetition." Thus, it develops the sensory intake of children who interact with it and in addition, the design is valuable for those undergoing speech therapy.
Kiri was made available through a Kickstarter campaign that quickly hit its goal — a testimony to the need for screenless smart toy designs that are playful but also boast educational values.
