"Taco Playbits is a self-learning STEM toy that encourages children at their own pace to build their literacy and numeracy skills while engaging them in fun games and challenges," he added.
Robotix outlined, "Taco Playbits is designed with everyone in mind. Parents and educators may record their own questions in their language of choice to provide additional unique challenges. It is multilingual, so kids can play and learn in any language or accent. It is also braille-compatible to enable self-learning for children who are blind or visually impaired."
Taco Playbits was launched on Indiegogo, a crowdfunding platform with a total of $6,597 raised so far in funding, and will aim to be ready in time for the Christmas rush.
