The Miko 3 robot, an award-winning toy for kids with artificial intelligence features and its own content platform, will soon play animated stories featuring some of Paramount’s most recognizable characters.
While CodeWritePlay hasn’t done any hands-on coverage of the Miko 3 robot and content platform, unboxing videos around the web are pretty impressive. After seemingly uncomplicated setup, kids ages 5 to 9 can have conversations with the robot, play games, and check out new content Miko units can download over wifi. It’s a load of eye-grabbing tech and cute features for kids, though the $249 USD price tag makes it no small decision.
The new Paramount content will join Miko’s lineup of existing brand partnerships that include (among others) DaVinci Kids, Kidoodle.TV, and, a staple in this household, Cosmic Kids.
Miko 3 can access certain third-party stories for free. All content will be available as part of the Miko Max subscription. A new stories app is scheduled to launch later this year.
