Discipline: Professional Concept

talcook is a real conversation starter. In recent years, children of various ages eating in cafeterias sometimes do not interact with other children. It is difficult for some of them to start a conversation, and children tend to talk to people they already know or not talk to anyone. talcook is designed to support children in such situations. The object is a simple shape with a surface texture that is tempting to touch. A child shakes the device and it generates an icebreaker topic or question to get the kids talking. talcook will help create more bonds between young people, which could be especially important in the future.
