Moji has a smart collar tag that sports a color screen that displays animated emojis to express Moji’s needs and feelings, such as being hungry, needing to go potty, or being petted. For kids who are nonverbal or who have not yet developed language skills, this is a particularly great feature.

Kids can also have pretend playtime being a dog trainer! They can help Moji learn and display a dozen tricks, such as sitting and speaking. Then kids can get a sense of what it is like to own a pet, as they use the included bowl, chew rope, and grooming brush to care for their furry friend. Each accessory has embedded technology that Moji recognizes and interacts with to amp up role play and deepen the connection to their canine companion.

Moji can be a great toy for kids who want to role play being a veterinarian, a dog groomer, or a pet trainer. It is also a consideration for grown-ups who want to see how their kids interact with a pet before making a permanent IRL pet purchase. For kids who have social-emotional needs, Mojo can be a possible aid for anxiety or help foster empathy and emotional recognition.

All in all, Moji the Lovable Labradoodle is a cute canine for any kid that wants a friend to cuddle!
