Introducing Squishysaurus: Promoting Imaginative Play and Interaction with AR
Squishysaurus has launched a fun, augmented reality app designed to promote communication and nurture a child’s imagination.
Meet Emma the scientist, Alfie the artist and Madison the athlete. Each dinosaur has its own interests, personality and ambitions that children can be inspired by.
Diligently developed over the last few months, the Squishysaurus app encourages collective activities and opportunities for parent-child interactions in a fun and social way:
- Promotes communication by voice activation features to animate Squishysaurus dinosaurs in unique ways
- Provides a tool for parents to read to their children or children to practise reading themselves
- Stimulates a child’s imagination with cute, fun dinosaur characters in an augmented reality environment
Interactions are one of the key components of healthy development in the early years of a child’s life. Whether it’s reading with a parent, exchanging with a teacher or playing with other children, interactions develop the senses and provide an important base for the construction of the child’s identity, social skills and modes of communication.
We believe playtime is a great opportunity for development and that’s exactly what you’ll discover when you meet Emma, Madison and Alfie. These cute dinosaurs love to learn and laugh with you.
