Design your imaginary friend

Hirde is a child-companion platform that makes imaginary friends real. Simply let your child draw and submit their imaginary friend through the Hirde website, or customise one from the existing Monster Library. In a matter of weeks, your child's new best friend will come to you with Hirde’s child companion app. Children can simply speak to their imaginary plush toy friend and interact with a touch screen to construct and draw stories as well as solve quests and learn.
