Little kids love stuffed animals. Two dads, Jeremy Scheinberg and Chris Harden, decided to take advantage of this fact and design a plushy that would inspire kids to explore STEM concepts.

Their toy, Trobo is designed to work in tandem with an iPad or iPhone. Once a wireless connection is established, can Trobo read an onscreen story to the child. The stories are all scientifically oriented. A variety of topics are explored including, chemistry, weather, physics, math, and engineering.

“We are so excited to bring this product out, not just for our backers but for kids everywhere,” said Harden. “There is so much amazing science in the world around us that we want to share with children.”

Trobo can be pre-ordered online for $59.
