Meet Miko, the first kids' robot to feature a Disney app
23 August 2022
Collaboration brings beloved Disney & Pixar Characters from “Toy Story”, “The Lion King” & “Frozen” to fast-growing kids' content platform for robotics.
The magical worlds of Disney and Pixar have arrived on the Miko 3 robot. The collaboration is a historic “first” for the consumer robotics space — and the latest indication that AI (artificial intelligence) will play a growing role in the future of kids entertainment.
Miko, a consumer robotics company specialising in kids' education and entertainment, has unveiled its Disney collaboration to customers in more than 140 countries. Animated storybooks featuring characters from Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Moana”, “Frozen” and “The Lion King”, plus Disney & Pixar’s “Toy Story”, “Big Hero 6” and “Coco” – and more worlds of Disney and Pixar are available now on the bestselling Miko 3 robot.
“Bringing the imaginative worlds of Disney and Pixar to our platform represents a big step in kids' robotics,” said Sneh Vaswani, Miko co-founder & CEO. “Miko is thrilled to be the first robotics platform to have such an innovative collaboration with Disney, and we look forward to raising the benchmark for kids engagement together.”

After being selected as the only Asia-based start-up participant in Disney Accelerator, a programme that connects technology companies with the expertise and resources of The Walt Disney Company, Miko has become the first company to host an official Disney app on a kids' robot platform.
The new additions to Miko’s content library include audiobooks and read-along stories with animated visuals. Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Zootopia” and “Tangled”, and Disney & Pixar’s “Ratatouille” stories have also been added to the lineup of Disney content available on the Miko 3 robot.
The Disney app will continue to evolve with more experiences and interactivity, Vaswani said.
