"As a toy designer with over 20 years of experience - and one of the co-creators of a children's theatrical group - I was inspired to create Udoo Planet's wearable toys by the brave kids at BC Children's Hospital who loved playing with hats created for them at one of our theatre's presentation there. Children wore hats with gold crown on top, just like the hero of the play we performed - King Matt the First, a little boy who becomes the king. Udoo Planet is designed to bring out the best in kids as they play, pretend and learn with their friends and family. My many years experience designing for children has convinced me that there will always be a place in our modern computerized world for simple, colorful, soft, hand on activities"
