Wonder Togs Tech T-Shirts

Designed by parents who understood the challenge of getting kids dressed, Wonder Togs makes T-shirts that feature zoo animals that “come to life” on a smartphone with just a tap to make getting dressed fun. Each shirt has a near-field communication (NFC) chip sewn into it, and when users tap their phones to one of those Talkin’ Tees NFC chips, they unlock digital content featuring two original songs and animated fun facts about the animal on the shirt.
