About Us

Woobo was founded with one goal in mind: bringing children’s imaginary friends to life. Utilizing cutting-edge robotics and artificial intelligence technologies, we strive to provide all children with a smart-companion who can talk, amuse, inspire, and grow alongside them.

The team challenged with bringing Woobo to life consists of many talented people across a diverse range of backgrounds. Every day at our office is an intimate collaboration between engineers, designers, educators, and marketers. We firmly believe this unique mixture of talents is essential in pushing the boundaries of what kids’ toys can truly be.
