Nothing makes a child happier, more content, and promotes learning and language development faster than being read to… snuggled in a cozy, special place with a person who cares. Teachers know that nothing helps a child’s cognitive and language development more than being read to. Fill it with pillows and blankets, Ugaloo is the perfect reading nook — big enough for both parents to sit with two children without feeling cramped.
Ugaloo promotes creativity and social development. Kids love to imagine and play in space they own and control — alone, with a friend, or with a bunch of friends. Filled with toys, Ugaloo is a place to stretch imagination. Kids can change the shape and configuration of Ugaloo by themselves.
Being little is hard. Children need time alone, but not too alone. Ugaloo is familiar, welcoming, calming, and helps kids feel safe.
Ugaloo is convenient. It is a set of interconnected “Bones” that a pair of 4-year-olds can set up in 2-minutes, covered by a breathable and machine-washable “Skin” that takes another minute to attach. Ugaloo folds flat against a wall in 5 seconds so it is out of the way, making it perfect for daycare or a small living room. It has full-size doors on all sides so kids can see out and adults can see in. Ugaloo is compact and goes anywhere — inside, outside, on the beach, and at grandma’s house.
Ugaloo was designed with guidance from a pediatrician, the child development laboratory school at a major midwestern university, and a reading teacher.
