Fizbit, the Automated Sidekick

Let Fizbit, our always-available, automated Sidekick entertain your child with conversation, jokes, and fun facts. Your child can talk to Fizbit or type a reply.

Create a Routine

Creating a routine is important to get the most out of Sidekicks. While there is no “right” amount to use, parents whose kids chat regularly with their Sidekick have reported an increase in sentence length and their child’s ability to respond to questions independently after 8 -10 sessions of 30 minutes each.
