Advantages and Innovations:
The tale pillow is an innovative solution in the foreign language education of little children.

One of the main advantages of the tale pillow is that it provides a much quicker learning method than traditional education. When the mind's state is lowered to alpha, the level of brain activity rises allowing details to be memorized in a more effective way. Information memorized in the alpha state is stored automatically in the long term memory, where it can be easily recalled from later on. Children between the age of 1.5-5 stay most of their time in alpha state during their consciousness, this way they are able to acquire even 3 languages easily. Based on the above information, the users of tale pillow will be able to effectively acquire any foreign language while lying down on an armchair or relaxing. Much time, energy and money can be saved with this effective method of relaxed language training.

Other advantages of the innovation:
- enables effective learning
- appropriate for all age groups
- different designs for each age group
- replaceable sound files
- can be placed on several objects (pillow, car seat, baby carriage)
- low production costs
- no competitors on the market with the same level of technology
