SwapBots is a revolutionary children's toy and video game, packed full of excitement!  

Our line of toys comes with 9 characters, each compromising of 3 components with their own special powers. Swap the pieces of each character to unlock your own customised Bot, then watch its unique powers burst onto your screen as you bring it to life with the SwapBots video game.   

Swap - Swap the pieces of your Bots, to create a customised character with multiple super-powers!  

Scan - Scan your SwapBot into the exciting SwapBots video game, then watch it burst to life on your screen! You can now customise it further with digital accessories and build it a unique hub environment.  

Play - Play for hours on end within the SwapBots video game. It's packed full with games, a battle mode, customisable environments and interactive ways to share your SwapBots journey with your friends!

Parents: SwapBots are affordable and they encourage children to interact and play both online and offline, in a way that supports positive development...  

SwapBots were created by mums & dads who wanted to unlock the magical world of augmented reality for their children, whilst still encouraging physical play and without breaking the bank! Now it's time for us to share our toy with families across the world!

Now you've got all that space to play with you need a mini-game to be a fully fledged astro-bot! An adventure awaits in a cosmos far, far away!

 We all need a friend to share our adventures with, and if we hit £500K then a companion we will have! A little digital pal for your SwapBot, there to help give you an extra boost to your stats and look darn spiffy in the doing so!

 

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

Our team have come together and work tirelessly to create the SwapBots video game and characters, but in order to sell this revolutionary toy we need to be able to produce enough of our product to hit minimum order quantities, which for a small company like ours, is financially not viable.

In order to get SwapBots from our family to yours, we need the support of those who share in our vision to bring physical and digital play together, with collectable characters and a video game children love.
