Not just a toy, but a companion!

About Photon

Kids learn best at play. Toys are excellent tools to teach kids about different things. However, toys have their own limitation. For instance, toys that can help kids to identify alphabets at the age of 3 to 4 become useless at a later stage. Why not give your kid something that can grow with the kid? One of the Kickstarter projects develops a toy that is ideal for kids between 6 to 12 years. It is basically a robot called ‘Photon’ that teaches a number of things and grows its skills with the kid’s age. Photon helps your kid to develop in logical thinking, technology, programming, social skills and memory enhancement .

Photon is an extremely simple toy to play with. With its dedicated app for smartphone and tablet, kids can control the robot, understand programming and do many other things. It is a combination of education and entertainment. Above all, Photon is not a toy that gets useless after some time. With constant growing skills, every time your kids play with it, they can learn something fresh.
