At Tiggly, we believe in the power of connected play- the magic that happens when you bring the best of physical play into digital apps.
We design fun learning toys that interact with the silliest learning apps you can imagine! Tiggly's learning systems take children on a learning journey full of inspiration, magic, and humor. A learning journey that cannot possibly be replicated with toys or apps alone.
1. Children LOVE to learn- we embrace that
2. Children learn best when they actively engage all their senses
3. Children are makers- they need to explore the unknown and invent new things
4. Making mistakes is part of the learning process
5. A little silliness goes a long way!
