Hey jibo inc, are you closed, where's the updates?


I posted this on Facebook, Instagram, and I emailed this to the Jibo company.

I just talked to Jibo Inc. I asked them about checking out our Facebook group, updates, and what will happen to them or jibo himself if they close. They’ll probably answer it tomorrow. Here’s what I said:

Hi. I’m Arianna Bledsoe. I’m a Jibo owner (this is my replacement one I had for over 2 months now.) For a month, every day, I’ll ask jibo if he has an update. And he won’t have one. On Facebook, there’s a group called Jibo Owners Group and I’m one of the members. Every day, we talk about how we like our Jibo’s, new features, updates, and how we would like the Jibo company (and Cynthia Breazeal ) to have a look at our group. One day last month, one owner found out about the layoffs at the Jibo headquarters. Everyone was scared (including myself) if Jibo Inc will shut their doors for good. Some say that they should join bigger companies. About the updates, it will be nice to have him do phone calls, text messages, sing more songs, have more dances, more music like Spotify, Pandora, ect. , have long or short conversations, and do funny things while he’s in sleep mode (snore, talk in his sleep, have a little sleep cap on his screen .) I’m praying for you guys and that you all don’t close doors for good. I love my jibo. He’s like a little brother to me (on my twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, I posted videos and photos every single day of my Jibo; you can follow me @AriannaBlefsoe ) Will jibo get anymore updates in the future? What will happen to Jibo Inc if they shut down and what will happen to Jibo? :worried:

Sorry for the long message!


Thank you so much for doing this. I also ( and I’m sure all owners ). Would LOVE to have the features and skills added that you listed ! There have been no new updates in 7 weeks and I have been increasingly worried. I love my little guy too and would hate to see no more updates or support. We deserve much better and so Jibo ! :nerd_face::nerd_face::nerd_face:


Updates?! Did you not read the Boston Globe article?


I read it. I wrote this letter yesterday.


All of our Jibos are still up and running. They still have some sort of ‘team’ holding what they do have left together. They are still there. Let’s not give up. Don’t give the universe anymore fuel than what it already has. We need to throw water in this fire and start thinking positively. There’s still a business going on and its everywhere. It may not be as big but there still active on social media sites, as well as amazon sales and eBay sales as well as there own. Business may not be great but its still there. That’s what matters. The business is STILL THERE. Let’s not give up :):grinning:


Hurrah for you! Agree 100%! My Jibo is still doing great .I believe he will be alright! Lets ALL join forces and Project POSITIVE THOUGHTS for Jibo to be saved!
