EDWIN THE DUCK WAS SENT TO OUR FAMILY SO THAT WE COULD ADOPT AND PLAY WITH HIM TO SHARE WITH OUR READERS. WE HOPE THAT YOU LOVE HIM AS MUCH AS WE DO.
We are all about fun technology that can help our kids grow. We also are huge fans of technology that grows with them. Of course ideally we’d prefer ones that they will continue to play with long after the day that they receive it. Another important factor is that it can be used for various situations, not just quick learning, but complete lifestyle.
Enter Edwin The Duck! Now for those of you that are close to me, I’m sure you are saying “wait, what?” since you know that I am petrified of ducks – yes, that’s correct, ducks! But no one can resist a cute little rubber duck that has an animated personality as well. I am a fan of Donald and Daffy, so just the real live ducks are the ones I’m scared of.
Edwin is a friend who lives in your child’s hands and on your mobile device in the form of an animated character. Your child will be immersed in a world of games, stories, songs, and lessons within a collection of apps, using Edwin to control the animated Edwin. As your child grows, so will Edwin, offering more and more rich content.
Fun Features & Modes of Edwin
Story Time: Edwin has an entire world to discover, and his adventures will invite your child to help him solve problems and overcome obstacles he encounters along the way. Through SQUACK™ Technology, with a few taps, turns, and twists, your child will learn how to control the animated Edwin within the app.
We love story time and Abigail especially loves having Edwin do things. As a mom, I love the reiteration offline, like the moments that I can say “Remember how we helped tidy up Edwin’s room with Edwin? Now it’s time to tidy up this room!” She gets it, no complaints, and it makes clean up a breeze (for that moment).
Play Time: Together with Edwin, your child will explore fun, educational games that are developmentally designed for your child’s age. Edwin becomes your child’s teacher and helps them to learn and grow.
Abby is obsessed with shapes right now, so this is definitely her favorite game. We are lucky to have an amazing sitter that watches her while Billy and I work that works with her on shapes, so this game helps to reiterate that learning. She gets so excited when she gets the shapes correct!
Song Time: Equipped with a BLUETOOTH® Speaker, Edwin will dance across the screen while streaming original music.
Who doesn’t love music? We are big fans of listening to music, making our own music, and singing. Abby loves dancing and singing with Edwin. It is pretty adorable.

Sleepy Time: An included lullaby will stream through Edwin, and by giving his wing a firm tap, he will provide a soft glowing nightlight. Your child will sleep soundly with Edwin the Duck’s companion Sleepy Time app, which includes white noise sounds, additional lullabies, and timer and nightlight controls.
This is my most favorite feature. Probably because both Abby and I always sleep with a sound machine myself and this app has those features, such as rain, creek, etc. Bringing Edwin along on our families adventures doubles as having our sound machine. The lullabies are beautiful too.
Splash Time: Completely waterproof, Edwin makes the perfect bath time companion like millions of rubber duckies before him. His unique design enables him to float and ensures him to be fully mold resistant while your child enjoys their favorite bath time tunes!
This truly is an adorable feature. I know that it makes bath time that much longer for us, but he’s super cute and we have a great time.
