“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.”
“Since we started using Kinjo, my kids are now explaining to ME what their favorite activities are teaching them. I love that learning is now a positive in our house”

Frequently Asked Questions
Kinjo is an entirely new kind of learning app that combines parents’ goals and kids’ interests to level up the learning in screen time. Kinjo motivates them to play educator-evaluated games and rewards them for choosing higher challenges and more learning. For Parents, Kinjo offers a weekly digest that provides insight into the level of challenge in kids’ gameplay, the time they spend, the friends they play with most, and the skills they are building

Kinjo evaluates games for their level of challenge and skill building and then scores them on a 200+ point scale. The higher the rating the more challenge and potential learning. Kinjo motivates kids to play games with higher challenge and more learning through a rewards system – Kinjo Coins. The higher the challenge level and the more skill building, the more coins kids earn. Kinjo Coins can then be redeemed for real-world rewards such as Robux.
Kids play Roblox games recommended by Kinjo for their level of challenge and learning. Based on that level they earn Kinjo Coins, which they can redeem for real world rewards such as Robux. The higher the level of challenge and learning they choose, the higher the rewards. Kids can earn up to 6,000 Kinjo Coins a month, which is about $6 in Robux value.
In the weekly digest, you will see the measure of cognitive challenge in your child’s gameplay and how that compares to other kids who play Roblox. In addition, you’ll learn about the skills they are building and the games that are helping them practice those skills. Time on Roblox and Friends are also features of the Kinjo Parent Weekly DIgest.

A note from the founders
Across our 25-year careers building learning products, we’ve seen that education’s biggest problem is how to effectively engage young learners.
We built Kinjo to bridge the gap between engagement and skill building. To help kids find and pursue valuable skills on platforms they already love.
Imagine if our kids were squeezing every drop of learning out of the devices they spend hours on.
That’s the future we are building at Kinjo.
