The story-driven Jerry, complete with 21 e-books include adventures with Jerry’s friends — glucose and insulin — encourages engagement between child and toy. Jerry comes with 8 injection sites and a free app which includes 21 interactive e-books and tools (pen/pump/glucometer). These stories correlate to learning a new diabetes lesson and are “unlocked” when a child successfully completes a management task.
