This post is part of a sponsored campaign for Povi. I received compensation for my participation, but my opinions are my own.
Teaching the ABC’s alone is simply not enough for raising a happy and successful child. Research highlights the importance of focusing on emotional intelligence starting at a very young age. This movement has gained momentum in recent years, in large part due to concerns over school violence, bullying and teen suicide.
Yes, I know! Something else on the parent’s radar to make note of. However, there is Povi to the rescue.
Povi is a connected toy with a mission for children ages 3-8. Povi shares short stories based on children’s everyday situations then engages young listeners and their parents in a discussion on emotions and feelings.
Povi is designed to help parents raise happier, caring and confident children, Povi is an EQ (emotional quotient) content platform + app with content sourced from experts and a huggable storytelling buddy as the delivery tool.
Povi comes with 10 pre-downloaded stories and a free app (available for Android or iOS) featuring additional questions parents can ask related to the stories and 20 additional stories that are age appropriate for each individual child. Parents can choose from among three levels; for ages 3-4, 5-6 and 7-8. The stories are written and curated by experts, including psychologists, teachers, and parents.
Povi’s stories address subjects such as caring, resilience, confidence, motivation, thankfulness and other valuable life skills. Povi is not designed to be played with alone, but rather always with a parent on hand to discuss the challenges presented and come up with possible solutions with their child.
Povi launches on Kickstarter, May 24, 2016. Be one of the first 2,000 customers to sign up and receive Povi at the discounted price of $49, a 40% discount from the future off-the-shelf Povi price. For more information visit the Povi site .
