The evolution of toys that connect to the Internet mirrors the rapid technological advancements and integration of the digital world into daily life over the past few decades. Initially, in the late 1990s and early 2000s, these toys were rudimentary, often featuring basic online functionalities such as code redemption for rewards or simple multiplayer interactions. Popular examples included Webkinz, plush animals that came with a unique code allowing kids to access a virtual world where they could play games and interact with others.
As technology progressed and Wi-Fi became more widespread, toys evolved to include more advanced Internet-based features. The rise of smartphones and tablets facilitated the development of toys that could be controlled or augmented using apps. For instance, Sphero's robotic balls or drones that could be piloted with smartphone controls.
The mid-2010s saw the introduction of smart toys equipped with sensors, voice recognition, and AI capabilities, like Hello Barbie, which could hold conversations with users by processing their responses via the cloud. These toys offered personalized experiences, learning and adapting to the user's preferences.
Today, as the Internet of Things (IoT) continues to expand, the blending of physical toys with digital interactivity remains a dynamic and ever-evolving sector, balancing the potential for enriched play experiences with the imperative to keep young users safe in the digital realm.
