Company Summary

We're a learning company developing physical toys for preschoolers (1.5-5 years old) that are designed to work with learning apps on tablets. Tiggly combines the best parts of physical play (>70 years of academic theory says that physical play is essential to early childhood development) with the best parts of digital tools (i.e., scaffolding, adaptive learning, feedback reports to parents) to create the ideal learning environment for children.
