New Elmo doll teaches kids how to code.
This year’s Elmo is not your typical Tickle Me Elmo doll – it is now a little robot, named Elmoji, who teaches kids to code. Elmo teaches kids logic and problem solving skills rather than typical ABCs. WowWee has created this cyborg robot based on its Coji coding robot. This represents a major transition for Elmo as we typically see Elmo doll after Elmo doll.
Elmoji is expected to be released in September 2017 for around $60. It could end up being one of the top Christmas toys of 2021. Designed for kids ages 4 and up, Emoji can be controlled via an app for smartphones and tablets. Graphics and emoji are used rather than code to facilitate problem solving. And let’s not forget that Elmoji is an adorable toy that can display an array of animations on its LCD screen. It even makes various sounds to engage kids.
