Your iPad Breathes Life Into Totoya's Plush Creatures

By Andrew Liszewski on at

Designed to be a soft interactive toy for kids, rather than a protective case for your tablet, Totoya's plush creatures completely swallow and protect your iPad while providing a peek at its display through a couple of strategic holes.

Instead of plastic googly eyes, an accompanying free Totoya app creates a set of more life-like peepers that are visible through the creature's larger cutout. While a set of easy-to-reach buttons are visible through a smaller hole situated somewhere near their heart, allowing kids to reach in and trigger interactive elements like sound effects.

It's another attempt to make the iPad toddler-friendly, and the case looks like it's more than capable of protecting your tablet from the rigors and abuse of a wee one. The iPad versions (pictured above) are called YetYet and Robotto and are both available now for £50. While smaller iPhone versions called YetX and RobX are a little cheaper at £30. And if you were wondering, the answer is yes, I typed 'Toyota' instead of 'Totoya' about 100 times while writing this. [Totoya via PSFK]
