Ubooly has arrived and he is ADORABLE. (Win one!)

There is so much to love about Colorado, but very close to the top of my list is community.

We all support each other (which is actually kind of easy, given all the cool things everyone is doing) and when the call goes out for a major Kickstarter campaign – if you have the cash, you help.

My friends at Ubooly did just that – and turned an idea into magic.

I mean seriously. Look at him.   —————– >

Ubooly is an adorable, round, orange plush toy with a pocket that holds your iPhone or iPod Touch. Then you download their free app and Ubooly comes to life. As in, the app is that face you see over there, and it talks to your child. It tells stories, tells jokes, and becomes their very bestest pal.

Ours arrived from the Kickstarter campaign last week and Declan hasn’t put him down since.

Yeah, um – Declan is nearly 10 years old.

In fact, Ubooly now sleeps with Declan and I am guessing Ubooly will end up going to college with him at this rate.

I asked if I could give away a whole bunch of Uboolys to you guys, but the good news is, they are in such high demand, they only had one available right now. But I am thrilled to spread the love, and hope you adore this thing as much as I do.

It’s simple to enter, use the Rafflecopter form below (another Colorado company), and you have 4 chances to enter.

    I love seeing kickstarter turn ideas into real (and huggable) things. So fun.

  2. Aimee Giese

    Bryan – I should also clarify they went onto be a Techstars company too … Just a really great example of a startup doing it right.

    What a cool toy – and so neat how Kickstarter is put to good use. Yay!

    My 7-year-old would be ALL OVER this.

    Entered! If I should win, I will have to immediately buy 2 more because my 3 kids will swallow this guy up! I should just do that right now. Very cool, Aimee.

    It would be hilarious if you could download a cussing grown-up one.

  7. Redneck Mommy

    This is so cool. My kids would covet.

    He’s so CUTE! I want to play with him… then I’ll pass him on to the bf’s niece. Maybe.
