Toys for tomorrow

We grew up playing with toys that activated the most colorful realms of our imaginations. Our blocks were skyscrapers and galaxies — whatever we wanted them to be.

We’re creating elegant, educational iOS apps to spark the curiosity of kids around the world today.

In our apps, kids play and learn by diving into big ideas, seeing how things work, and making connections about the world they live in.
