Leka provides fun and educational games that parents can play with their kids and therapists can use to track a child's developmental progress. By responding to a child’s actions, Leka encourages social interaction and boosts autonomy.

This smart toy could soon change the way children learn, play and progress. The crowdfunded campaign reached nearly $130,000 in June of 2016, and Leka is now available for pre-order on its website. Play the video above to learn more.
