Urdu’s First Talking Pen: Bringing Linguistic Heritage to Life

For someone living outside of Pakistan or India, holding on to your linguistic heritage can sometimes feel difficult or abstract. This is why Kids Bolo not only launched their Urdu-English books but also a highly interactive technological tool which truly paved the way for interactive Urdu learning. 

You may ask - what is this interactive Urdu learning tool? At Kids Bolo, we call it the Bolo Pen but you can also refer to it as “Urdu’s first ever talking pen”! 

The Bolo Pen serves as a transformative tool for bridging the gap between children and their heritage language. The talking pen which is Urdu’s first talking pen brings life to the books! You tap on any part of our Urdu-English books, the pen will speak. For instance, if you tap on the Urdu text, it’ll repeat back in Urdu. If you tap on the background, fun music or a sound will play. If you tap on the English translation, it will speak back in English and so on. 

The Bolo Pen has the ability to instantly activate sounds and narratives within the pages of our books. Our most popular storybook, "Bachon Nay Daikha Pakistan", when paired with the Bolo Pen offers a dynamic and interactive learning experience for young children (& even adults to be honest).

Bachon Nay Daikha Pakistan

By tapping into the rich soundscape of Pakistan's streets, bazaars, and daily life, the Bolo Pen immerses children in an authentic sensory experience. The honking of vehicles, the chatter in bazaars, and the melody of the National Anthem allows children to feel as though they are truly present in Pakistan.

This multisensory approach not only enhances comprehension but also fosters a deep emotional connection to the cultural heritage being depicted. Ultimately, it empowers children to connect with both their linguistic and cultural heritage in a profound & tangible way.
