Plant Friend

Growing a seed into something edible or beautiful is a magical experience, but no easy task. What if your plant could talk to you? Tell you its needs and where it wanted to be placed?

PLANT FRIEND helps children discover and learn how to care for and grow plants. Based on sensory inputs Plant Friend expresses the plant’s need for light, water and warmth in emotional and communicative movements.
