Meet the Robot That Builds Resilience

Moxie has been defined as a force of character, energy, spirit, courage and determination. It’s a trait that doesn’t come naturally to all of us. To help children aged 5-10 achieve a higher level of “moxie,” the experts at Embodied have developed a revolutionary companion for social-emotional learning – a robot appropriately named Moxie. 

Designed to support parents and empower children to build social-emotional skills that promote confidence, resilience and self-esteem, Moxie engages kids in creative play activities. Through storytelling, drawing and mindful practices – like writing a note of appreciation to a family member, Moxie helps promote age-appropriate life skills like carrying on a conversation, taking turns, controlling one’s emotions and making friends. He also aids in critical thinking, conflict resolution and problem solving. Parents can track their child’s progress through Moxie’s companion parent app.

Among the testimonials on the Embodied website, one mother of a 5-year-old boy wrote: “He has kept his cool a bit better in situations that would usually frustrate him to the point of a meltdown. He has communicated through them instead and it has been a really great aha moment for all of us as a family.” 

Another mom of a 6-year-old boy wrote: “Moxie promotes kindness and teaches social emotional skills that are crucial in today’s world. Moxie helps build confidence and encourages kids to stretch beyond their comfort zone and communicate their feelings. Moxie is an engaging and interactive robot that will win the hearts of all in your family.” 

Available for rent or purchase, Moxie was created by a world class team of advisors who are experts in the fields of child education, natural language processing, machine learning, robotics, engineering, neurology, and design – spanning the gap from Disney Imagineer to a former VP for Autism Speaks. In addition to accolades from parents, Moxie has also been hailed as “the Robot Pal You Dreamed of as a Kid” by Wired Magazine and is a Consumer Electronics Show 2021 Innovation Award Honoree.
