For many parents these days, one major concern is their children’s addiction to smart devices.
A 2017 survey by the Ministry of Science and ICT showed that 19.1 percent of 2,651 children aged between three to nine were categorized as “highly dependent” on smartphones, up 55 percent from 2015.
In what could be a solution, Pankaj Agarwal, a former creative executive at Samsung Electronics and father of two children, launched startup TagHive in 2017 to develop smart toys and mobile solutions that minimize the negative impact of smartphones on kids.
Pankaj Agarwal, a 35-year-old IIT Kanpur graduate, has founded a start-up company, TagHive, with a few like-minded professionals in Seoul to pursue his passion for improving education. His mission is to revolutionise everyday experiences with a smart tag solution -- a combination of a button type tag, a smart app and back-end analytics that are targeted at reinventing interactions for kids at play and at school.
Samsung in-house startups graduate from incubator program
TagPlus makes its namesake "smart tag" for children. The firm [TagHive] will form partnerships with toy companies to sell tags with the toys themselves. The tag can be operated easily, with motions such as click, shake, hold, and bump, and will register the toy with nearby mobile devices without a password or login.
Whenever Pankaj Agarwal saw his son Anant play alone with his toy blocks, a question often nagged him: “Why does he have to play alone? Is there something I can do to make play-at-home social and interactive for him?” He was also inspired to change the status quo when he looked at the many expensive toys gathering dust around his house. Agarwal thought of the millions of middle-class homes that just couldn’t afford all those high-tech toys with pricey tags.

First up is Tag+, the product that will change the way that children interact with their toys. It’s a button-type device that connects to toys and a smartphone app through Bluetooth. Once paired, kids can click, long-press, shake or bump the smart tag to enable various responses from their toys.
