Creativity blooms in 4-6 year olds. It is also an important time to learn graphic, sound, speed identification and self-discipline. Tomato Frog integrates the physical and virtual worlds, providing kids a new way to explore traditional tangible toys in the digital era.</p>
<p>Tomato Frog consists of two parts: tangible toys and a tablet application. Kids can make animal faces with Play-Doh using a special acrylic base and customise them by decorating their faces with light pipe components. When kids move and rotate their own animal face on the Tomato Frog tablet app, they create animal sound effects and graphic animation and also get light feedback on the animal’s face. Finally, kids can generate their own animal’s song with a recording and composing function.
