PlayShifu, the makers of Shifu Orboot, the multi-award-winning educational toy, announced that their Orboot app is now free for any user without purchasing the physical toy!
Shifu Orboot is a specially-designed globe powered by AR and works with the companion app. Scan a location on the globe with the app & everything comes to life in 3D on the screen.
Kids can learn and interact with animals, ultures, cuisines, monuments, and inventions.
And play interactive puzzle-based games that are super fun.
In the wake of the pandemic, PlayShifu has opened access to those who haven’t purchased the Orboot globe to support learning at home.
Earlier, one could purchase games inside the app if they didn’t have the Orboot globe. Now, anyone can play 4 games for free even without the globe.
Vivek Goyal & Dinesh Advani, the co-founders of PlayShifu, are parents themselves. “We have all seen and experienced chaos in the last four weeks where kids have been stuck at home,” said Dinesh. They wanted to help other parents in keeping their kids engaged and learning at home since the schools are shut.
With interactive and animated content, the app is a treasure trove of knowledge for 75 countries and 500 topics.
Fun & educational screen time:
• Tour mode: Explore and interact with maps, animals & cultures
