Osmo is one of the go-to companies when it comes to helping kids learn through its tablet-based products. Edtech company Osmo has now released its latest iPad-enabled learning tool for the preschool set. It is mainly aimed at children between the ages of 3 to 5 years old. The Little Genius Starter Kit comes with four interactive games aimed towards teaching youngsters the alphabet, the essentials of drawing and creative problem-solving. The company is known for its iPad hookups that help in teaching kids how to code or let them build their own racecars and is diving deeper into traditional core skills like building vocabulary or learning math. Osmo already sells a Genius Starter Kit aimed at teaching older children spelling and arithmetic; this new kit is similar, just aimed at younger kids.
According to Osmo’s Dr. Heidy Maldonaldo, “We want to bring preschool learning to the 21st century by merging Froebel’s and Montessori’s proven educational manipulatives with adaptability and personalization for digital applications.” The kit is expected to be available for pre-order in the coming weeks where it will be priced at $79, iPad not included, of course.
Osmo Little Genius Starter Kit ignites early learning through these core, hands-on experiences:
- Tangible ABC’s: Playful practice for pre-readers. Build letters with squishy, colorful sticks & rings. Over 500 vocabulary words.
- Squiggle Magic: Create anything you want using sticks and rings and they come alive on the screen! Learn vocabulary, build artistic confidence, and develop fine motor skills.
- Costume Party: Experiment with clothes and colors to make costumes, then watch the characters react!
- Stories: Hours of problem-solving fun. Mix and match costumes to find silly solutions to obstacles and navigate adventures.
Osmo has resonated well enough with kids, parents, and teachers, and it is in more than one million households worldwide.
