Fun AI Companion for Kids – Miko

This holiday season think about investing in a delightful, adorable AI-powered robot friend for the children. Luna approves of our selection of Miko for review this week. Miko is an adorable AI-powered robot friend designed for children ages 5-10. Developed by Indian startup Emotix, Miko provides a safe and engaging way for kids to learn and play.  

Out of the box, Miko is very cute and approachable. It looks like a small blue robot with wheeled legs, animated eyes on its tablet face, and glowing cheeks when ‘happy.’ The design I found to be friendly and warm for children and adults.

The process to set up your set up the Miko is simple – just connect it to the Miko Go app on your mobile device via WiFi. This walks you through the whole process including registration and granting permissions. I found it to be easy to follow and understand. Once you have completed the set up, Miko comes alive!

Miko responds to your child’s voice and can answer questions, hold fun conversations, tell stories, play educational games, and even hold video calls. The voice recognition is excellent, with Miko able to understand my 7 year old nephew easily.

The Miko Go subscription service (starting at $7.99 per month) unlocks hundreds of activities covering a wide range of subjects – math, science, languages, music, logic and more. Your children can earn rewards and incentives through consistent engagement.

What makes Miko stand out is how adorably expressive it is. With lively facial animations on its screen-face, it can show a range of emotions when responding like happiness, surprise, confusion, etc. This emotional connection makes it feel like a real friend for your children.

Miko can independently roam and follow our children around. It has sensors to avoid obstacles and falls off ledges. The battery lasts 2-3 hours so it’s best to place Miko on its charging pad when not in active use.

Overall, I found that Miko delivers an incredibly engaging experience for children starting at a young age. If you want more than just a toy for your child and instead an AI companion that can teach and emotionally connect, try Miko we give it a great review.
