Hi Roya,
Yes! I'd love to talk and see if there's ways to collaborate. We're very interested in bringing Octobo to ECEs and work with teachers to discover Octobo's potentials.
Please email me at and we can schedule a call. :)
Looking forward to hearing from you!

Hi Tamara, our storybooks also act as the play instructions. We also written the instructions in different ways depends on every book's target age group. For example, you will see in the book "Octobo loves to /shake hands/(in bold) with his pals, try it now it's lots of fun!" so parents know how to guide the interactions. And for more complicated actions in the preschooler book, we put action icons and clear directions for parents "Give Octobo the A token and see what happens!". Aside from the book content, we will also provide a play guide for parents and teachers with multiple ways to facilitate the play in different context. Thanks!

Yes! Every storybook comes with an app that connects to the plush. This way we can keep updating new contents for kids to play with! Our goal is to build a content library so families can customize activities to play with Octobo.
