Technology is everywhere.  Lucky for savvy parents, Shifu created brilliant toys that are as much fun as they are educational! They’ve perfected the ability to combine advanced technology with hands-on, engaging toys that help them learn.  STEM skills are crucial to a child’s development. Shifu understands this, and created two amazing products to both enlighten and educate kids!

Shifu Orboot – Travel the world with this interactive AR globe

Remember using globes when we were kids?  Now, your kids can explore the world, too – but it’s not their mom’s globe, that’s for sure! The Shifu Orboot is a high-tech globe, because it uses augmented reality. The companion app lets kids interact and visualize the world in an entirely new way – 4D! They’ll engage with fun stories, voices, poems, regional music and more.

There are over 4,000 highlights and 1,000 interesting facts about cultures, monuments, inventions, animals, maps and weather. And yep – that covers tons of countries around the world.  It definitely helps kids explore, while using their STEM kills like building knowledge, linguistics, and cognitive skills. It even includes a travel kit for a complete experience – with stamps, stickers and an adorable passport!

Screen time can become educational and fun with the Orboot! Plus, you’ll enjoy learning about different cultures right alongside your kiddos. Plus, this super unique learning experience is enhanced with visualization and AR. Kids can use their imagination with videos and books, but with the Orboot, they become part of the adventure in real life, too.  Even better, it grows with your child!  From ages 4-10, your kids can absorb everything the Shifu Orboot has to offer!
