As the increase of technology devices saturated the market, Kayle Concepts recognized that children’s playtime was being replaced by tablets, smart phones and other technological toys and learning devices. The notion of having an inseparable, huggable plush best friend had apparently become a habit of the distant past.
With the intent of bringing back the plush buddy, Laura Jiencke, founder of Kayle Concepts had an idea of combining traditional plush toy designs with state-of-the-art technology. The concept of an educational “huggable” plush learning companion that could be combined with a wide range of online digital content would provide children with a great source of entertainment while assisting in educating and developing Cognitive and Communication skills.
Laura Jiencke is the founder and creator of the awarding winning Bluebee Pals Interactive Plush Learning Tools, Bluebee Pals Life Skills/Educational App and co-author of the Bluebee Pals Techie Rangers book. The Bluebee Pals and companion app are recognized globally as an effective assistive technology tool for early learners and special needs children for engaging communication and learning.
Kayle Concepts is well known for their numerous collaborations with educators, therapists and universities through her non-profit donation program, The Bluebee Pal Project. Laura is passionate about working with special needs organizations and contributing viable resources for educators and therapists through bluebeepals.com. The Bluebee Pal Website is a highly respected resource for many educator and therapy organizations.
