LingoDodo® Launches Adorable Interactive Elephant Plush Toy to Help Kids Learn New Languages

LingoDodo® Launches Adorable Interactive Elephant Plush Toy to Help Kids Learn New Languages

LingoDodo® Launches Adorable Interactive Elephant Plush Toy to Help Kids Learn New Languages

According to a recent study, it's "nearly impossible" for those who want to learn a second language to reach a native-level fluency if they start learning after the age of 10 years old. However, getting your child to learn a new language can be challenging, especially if they are resistant to sitting down and studying for hours on end.

At LingoDodo®, we're always looking for new and innovative ways to help kids learn languages. That's why we're excited to introduce our latest product: the LingoDodo® Elephant Plush Toy! We call it LingoPhant™; The language teaching elephant. This super cute toy comes pre-loaded with animal sounds and seven rhymes in Hindi or Gujarati, or Punjabi, making it the perfect way for kids to learn these languages, in a fun and interactive way. Keep reading to learn more about this unique toy and how it can help your child develop a love for language learning! 

What Is So Special About The LingoPhant™?

The LingoPhant™ is a plush toy that helps kids learn new languages, in a fun and interactive way. The toy features moving ears and comes in three different languages - Hindi, Gujarati, and Punjabi - to make learning a new language more engaging for children. 

Do you remember playing Lukka-Chuppi or Santa-Kookdi and hiding in your Nani’s attic or under her bed? Well, our LingoPhant™ loves to play peek-a-boo with your precious little one. Just let her press the purple button and watch her being mesmerized. 

Each button on the elephant toy is dedicated to a different function, making it easy for children to learn various concepts such as alphabets, animal names, common rhymes, and even play a peek-a-boo game, making it easy for children to switch between activities. For example, the orange button teaches alphabets, the blue button teaches names and sounds of different animals, and the green music note button has seven different rhymes in that language. These rhymes include both original traditional rhymes and American rhymes like "head shoulders knees" and "twinkle-twinkle little star." With so many activities to choose from with one toy, the LingoDodo® Elephant is sure to be a hit with kids and parents alike!

Engagement is the Key to Language Learning

The plush is more than just a cute toy - it's also a great way to get kids engaged in language learning. Our LingoPhant™ is a gift of language and the comfort of a hug, all wrapped in one. Unlike traditional language learning methods, such as sitting down with a textbook or flashcards, the LingoDodo® Elephant encourages children to actively participate in their learning. Raise your hand, if you want no-screen time for your bundle of joy.

This hands-on approach is proven to be more effective for language acquisition, as it allows children to internalize the new words and concepts more easily. In fact, according to Astin's Theory of Student engagement, the best learning environment is one in which it is possible to increase students' attention which is precisely what the plush toy intends to do.

 

Conclusion

The LingoDodo® Elephant is an innovative new product that makes learning a new language fun for kids. With three different languages and multiple ways to interact with the toy, children will be able to learn various concepts such as alphabets, animal names, and common rhymes while also enjoying themselves.
