In the digital age we live in, children are easily drawn towards mobile devices. Whether it is the restaurant or shopping mall, you will notice that the children are being given smartphones to keep them quiet. Warning from the healthcare experts suggests that playing with smartphones can significantly affect the child’s physical and mental development. The use of mobile devices is on the rise, and we need to curtail the growth to prevent children’s growing addiction. Recently, an AR toy company called PlayShifu launched a new interactive toy that offers a phygital experience to children. It feels like a combination of a beautiful globe with dinosaurs and lands from pre-historic times.

Kids can learn more than 400+ dino facts, and it also has an interactive voiceover. The new app for kids is filled with adventurous games and adorable characters that can be used to explore the pre-historic era. The working of the app is quite simple. You must first download the app from Play Store, and you are all set to get going. People can use their devices to scan the icons on the AR-powered globe. Even the categories can be picked to explore and start learning. The games can also be played offline without the need for the internet.
