What Kinjo parents say:

“The best part of Kinjo was that it turned my daughter’s Roblox time from a constant battle to a cool opportunity for us to connect and learn together.”

Erin F. New Hope, PA

“My son will never focus on anything the way he focuses on his tablet. Before Kinjo, it didn’t occur to me to use my parenting energy to better direct that focus instead of fighting it.”

Doug A. Austin, TX

Today's kids deserve learning that is as enjoyable, engrossing, and engaging as play

We created Kinjo to tap into the natural enthusiasm and curiosity play brings – to meet kids where they are engaged most – in social video games, online scavenger hunts, and adventures with friends.

Kinjo changes the way we approach education and screen time, to harness the power of kid-favorite platforms to help them learn and grow.

Yours in gaming and learning,
