About Flycatcher:

Flycatcher is a young UK company that creates innovative tech toys for kids. It was founded in 2014 by Shay Chen, an Israeli developer who ran two successful technology businesses before focusing his attention on toys. As a father as well as an inventor, he saw how his children seamlessly moved between digital and physical worlds, learning how to navigate their complicated 21st-century lives through play. “Technology was like a magnet for them,” says Chen. “But I wanted to make sure that they also played offline and learned the social skills that are often missing with screens.” All Flycatcher toys utilize technology in new ways. But equally important, they incorporate physical play with the same kind of seamless energy that Chen admired in his children.

Smarty JOJO™ teaches preschoolers on-the-go as they zoom through the air with this super-charged learning toy. Smart Technology identifies colors, “magically” naming the shades where JOJO lands. Kidspeak conversation calls out feelings, helping kids recognize their own emotions. Fun missions teach directions, shapes, and opposites. Motion sensors encourage active physical play as kids learn. Over 150 random actions and reactions make every experience different Smarty JOJO™ is bi-lingual. Kids can toggle between two languages to learn:
• Colors
• Right and left 
• Up and down
• Fast and slow
• Shapes
• Emotional Intelligence
