What can you do with mTiny?

The robot is called mTiny and it provides a stress-free learning experience to children, older than 4 years old, much like a toy but it is more than just that. It helps the young ones to learn cross-curricular knowledge and comes with extensive study packs. It’s also interesting to point out that it offers a screen-free learning experience, which is allegedly unique to this product.

By using mTiny kids can play coding games and discover new things to learn. The fusion of cross-curricular content leverages new didactic philosophies and practices to nurture curiosity for knowledge.

The mTiny robot has more than ten facial expressions and more than 300 sound effects that provide a more immersive play, and learning experience. It almost goes without saying, but I do regardless, mTiny also only consists of eco-friendly and non-toxic materials so your kids won’t come to harm when using it.
