CogniToys Dino Review + Giveaway (ARV $100)

Children are built like miniature sponges, they literally soak up everything. As a parent I’m not surprised when I spend the course of a single day fielding questions left and right. I learned early on in my first foray into parenthood that I had to be careful when answering questions because not only would my little one retain information but she’d also repeat it back to others. So, flippant, sarcastic answers quickly flew out the window and I found myself having to think hard on the answers I provided to even the most basic, innocent questions.CogniTOYS

It’s only natural, when tasked with answering a plethora of questions every day, that we as parents get tired and sometimes frustrated with having to come up with real answers. Gone are the days where we could make up nonsensical responses and the more complex the questions become, the more exasperated we become. Luckily for us there’s the CogniToys Dino! This intelligent, interactive Dino will become not only yours but your little ones new best friend.

The CogniToys Dino is an education companion that will thrill your child without the use of a screen. Able to tell stories, answer questions, practice spelling, play games and even lead guided meditations, Dino is the best friend you’ve always wanted for your little one.

    The Wi-Fi-enabled Dinos engage kids in interactive conversation and get smarter with each automatic content update

  2. Julie Lundstrom says

    This is so neat for my son. I would love this to help him learn. I like the
    Parent Panel. The Parent Panel is a secure dashboard that provides insight into how a child plays with their Dinosaur. Through the dashboard, parents can monitor which topics their child prefers. Parents can also use the dashboard to change their account settings and provide feedback and suggestions for improvement. This helps me feel that my child is safer.

  3. Lissa Crane says

    I love everything about this Dino, but if I had to choose my favorite feature, it would be that it is constantly evolving & updates automatically as new content becomes available! This is such an amazing piece of technology!

  4. Patty wright says

    I love everything about it. My 2 yr old grandaughter would love it. She knows her ABC,s and color’s and lots of songs. She is a quick learner.

  5. Renee Walters says

    I like that it answers questions, tell stories, play games, crack jokes and even lead guided meditations to engage children in educational play.

  6. Lisa Ann says

    I like that “CogniToys try to personalize interactions and can remember what a child shares — such as their name or favorite animal, etc. — to customize learning and future conversations.”

  7. Tarah says

    I love that it answers questions – our kids ask millions everyday. But I think my favorite feature is that it tells knock knock jokes! My oldest son LOVES telling jokes & this would be fun!

  8. D SCHMIDT says

    My favorite feature is Age-appropriate vocabulary words and math questions are sprinkled throughout the toy’s many interactive games and stories to ensure no matter the activity, kids and their Dinos are always learning.

  9. Marty Crosson says

    I like that content updates automatically. The fact that all you kid’s unanswered questions are uploaded to a database seems a little creepy, though, tbh

  10. Maryann D. says

    I like that the IBM Watson-powered Dinosaurs listen to kids’ questions and adapt to their age, allowing them to grow over time

  11. Susan Hartman says

    I know I am a grandma and from another generation but this toy really amzes me. I can’t believe it answers question and remember name & favorite colors.

  12. Victoria Scott says

    I love that it grows with the child. How many toys do we have right now that our children have outgrown??? This is awesome!


    I love that they have a parent dashboard so you can monitor your child’s activity and see what they are learning.

  14. Chandra Whetstone says
