#Giveaway Holiday Guide: CogniToys Dino

As we look into those last minute gift ideas and seek out the gifts for the kids, as a parent I find that I like to seek out the gifts that engage little minds. Ones that offer interaction, and that the kids are sure to enjoy playing with over and over again. So when we were sent the very adorable Dino from the line of interactive toys from CogniToys, I knew that Heather would enjoy checking it out and sharing her thoughts with our readers!

Do you have a kiddo who asks 100+ questions a day? Well like many, the answer for me is yes. I have a very inquisitive 5 yr old and we found the Dino to be a toy that sure helps for those days he has a lot of questions as we do our homeschooling lessons and we are assisting the older kids with their work. Once you install the app on your phone, the set up is simple to get your Dino on the internet. After the setup is complete, you just press and hold his tummy to ask questions, tell stories, play games, or even hear some jokes. I know this has quickly become a favorite for my curious 5 year old and my daughter, who is 10, likes to join in on the fun as well. Which makes the Dino a toy that can interact with various ages and grow with the kids as their minds grow!

Key Features:
  • Games and Stories Galore – CogniToys are designed to engage kids in educational play. Kids can ask their Dino thousands of questions, practice vocabulary, listen to stories and so much more.
  • Easy Set Up – Parents must use the CogniToys App to connect the Dino to Wi-Fi. Once connected, the Dino no longer requires the use of a smartphone for playtime.
  • Emotional Intelligence – Dinos don’t just respond, they respond intelligently. If a child says they are scared, the Dino encourages them to speak to an adult they trust. Or, if a child tells the Dino they’re sad, the toy may suggest meditation or listening to a funny joke.
  • Personalized – CogniToys try to personalize interactions and can remember what a child shares – such as their name, favorite food or animal, etc. – to customize learning and future conversations.
  • Constantly Evolving – CogniToys are cloud-connected, Wi-Fi enabled smart toys, allowing for the play experience to constantly improve and automatically update as new content becomes available.

Making the choice to add the Dino from CogniToys to your last minute shopping list a must when seeking fun interactive toys to give this holiday season! And to help with bringing the interactive Dino fun home, the wonderful people from CogniToys would like to give one of our amazing readers their own Dino!


Product received, thank you to CogniToys as well as the PR for supplying me with a product for this review, all opinions are my own.
