Interactive pajamas come with built-in bedtime stories

A lot of kids don’t like having to put on their pajamas, as doing so means that it’s time to go to bed. If those jammies had bedtime stories digitally hidden within them, though – well, maybe then the kiddies couldn’t wait to get them on. That’s the idea behind Smart PJs.
The pajamas are covered with a pattern of multi-colored dot codes – each one of those codes is different from the others. When one of them is scanned using a smartphone running the accompanying app, a bedtime story that’s unique to that code appears on the phone.
We’ve inquired as to whether the app can be “reloaded” with fresh stories once all the codes have been scanned, but are still waiting to hear back from the makers.
Smart PJs are available in four sizes, in boys’ and girls’ versions, for US$25. A demo of the pajamas can be seen in the video below.
