2. Shaping Creative Thought

Not only fine motor skills but cognitive abilities are moulded early on with Minglings toys.



3. Fun and Imaginative

A child’s mind between the age group of 2-6 is like a sponge. It absorbs information quicker than any other age group.

Minglings is built to boost a kid’s vibrant imagination, independent thought, and observation skills through its amusing challenges and super-fun games.

Safe to say that it will never be a dull day for kids with Mingling buddies.


4. Dynamic Learning

Many parents and teachers are now ‘gamifying’ a child’s environment. It has been observed that this “gamification”  helps kids learn better, faster and retain information for a longer time.

This has been made possible with AR technology and engaging gameplay in Minglings. You will be glad to see how quickly a child learns logical reasoning, memory retention and more aptitude-based skills in a jiffy!



5. Hands-on Play

Both Minglings Monsters and Animals come with 5 toys each. Kids can mix-match to create many more. And the AR app brings them all to life. Loaded with interactive puzzles and games, they get to make new buddies, name them, feed them and crack challenges while at it.



Combining entertainment with education, Minglings are literally THE toys that become toons.
