While the Zyrobotics Zumo Learning System may look like a regular plush toy to some, it actually hides an ingenious interactive learning tool for children ages three to seven years old.

Recently, we had the opportunity to review a new educational toy on the market called the Zyrobotics Zumo Learning System.  What may look like a regular plush toy to some, actually hides an ingenious interactive learning tool for children ages three to seven years old.

The main attraction of the Zyrobotics Zumo Learning System is Zumo the turtle.  The plush toy is bluetooth enabled and wirelessly connects to a tablet to the play games without touching screen.  It empowers STEM (Education through Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) through play.

As a parent, I’m a big proponent of educational toys.  I believe in the concept of “play with a purpose.”  So when I had the opportunity to try out the new Zyrobotics Zumo Learning System with my daughter, I was interested to see how she would interact with it.  When we first opened the box, my daughter was overjoyed to see the large plush turtle and immediately gave it a gigantic hug.  Little did she know it was a nifty piece of technology too!

The complete system comes with a stuffed animal (in our case a turtle), as well its own Android tablet fully loaded with Zyrobotics games, and a fun green protective case.  The protective case is perfect for rough and tumble kids like my own.

The circles on top of the turtle are designed for kids to tap in lieu of using a touchscreen when interacting with the game.  However, if you prefer, your kids can use your own tablet.

Since my daughter is only 2 years old, she had fun pressing the buttons on the turtle, and watching the water drop on the forest fire that’s a part of the pre-loaded game.  The more advanced games are better suited for children who are older and have already started counting like my son who is 7.

As a bonus feature, the Android tablet also operates as a regular everyday tablet and you can upload other switch-enabled apps to play with the turtle or regular apps to play without the plush.

The Zyrobotics Zumo Learning System comes pre-loaded and pre-charged, so you can start playing the games as soon as you open the box.  However, if want to do a bit more customizing and change the initial set-up, it will take a little longer to get accustomed to it.

Overall, the Zyrobotics Zumo Learning System is a great tool to help children learn rudimentary academic skills.   The Zyrobotics Zumo Learning System is now available on Amazon for $160.00.

Happy Learning!
