14 Jan 2010: Such a simple toy can do so much: "Inspired by EQ, the Theory of Emotional Intelligence, and with the guidance of child development experts, the ZQ approach nurtures emotional self-confidence while fostering cognitive and physical growth. Zolo's progressive design stimulates the recruitment of a greater variety of brain cells than traditional baby products, which helps to create a more open-minded, flexible thinker. Our goal is to encourage self-expression, build self-confidence, and inspire the imagination."
