Edwin The Learning Duck

Apple recently picked up Edwin the learning duck, a learning toy with personality. Edwin is the classic rubber duck with a technology twist.  Edwin is designed to be a child’s best friend. Intended for children from infant to 7 years old, Edwin has  companion apps where children can control Edwin on the screen with a tap of the rubber duck toy.

Edwin the Smart Duck lives in your child’s hands and on your iPad or iPhone in the form of an animated character. Edwin can immerse your child into a world of games, stories, songs, and lessons within apps.  Use the rubber hand-held Edwin to control the animated Edwin. The developer refers to this as  “SQUACK” technology, which is motion based interaction with a mobile app.

Edwin grows with your child offering them more and more rich content. The companion apps, Edwin the Duck and Edwin Sleepy Time are free but are really intended to be used with the rubber duck. According to the developer, more content is on the way.
