Explorer Starter Kit

(Genius + Creative Starter Kit )

Osmo learning games makes it fun for children to learn, using toys as teaching tools. Osmo is magic! In 2013, Osmo created fun-filled & Award-winning learning games that interact with actual handheld pieces & an iPad and/or fire tablet, bringing a child’s game pieces & actions to life with no Wi-Fi necessary for game playing.

Osmo merges tactile exploration with innovative technology, actively engaging children in the learning process. Osmo games develop a wide range of skills, varying skills based on each game, including creativity, problem-solving, confidence gaining, child-led, hands-on, gender-neutral, curriculum inclusion, social/emotional skills, STEM/steam (science, technology, engineering math & art) and many more educational capabilities. Games are designed for children aged 3-12 and include beginner to expert levels. 

Our writers love OSMO!

“The technology is amazing—she would draw a picture on the dry erase board that’s provided with the kit, and the character on the screen would pretend to pull her drawing into the iPad. Then, magically, her drawing was there and the character was interacting with it as part of the story!”

“I love how Osmo incorporates technology in a hands-on way. I try to be conscious of how much screen time my children have but also realistic to the fact that technology will be highly integrated into their lives and they’ll need to develop skill sets around it.”
