Houston, we have a mission…
To help 30+ million families raise amazing kids through play, play, and more play!
There weren't many early learning app options for kids back in the 2010s... until CEO Cristobal Viedma took it upon himself to make one. In 2015, Lingokids was born!
Where it all began
End of 2015
We started forming our team and designing the first playlearning™ games for Lingokids
3-2-1 blast off! The Lingokids app is launched
Lingokids became available for Android devices
We reached 1 million users across the globe. Yohoooo!
Our first of many “million user milestones!”
Guillermo García Carsi, creator of Pocoyo gave our Lingocharacters an adorable new look
We realized “life’s like a playground and everyone should get to play!” So our team created Play Together games for the whole family to playlearn together
Then, we created the Lingokids Community to help grown-ups around the world connect about their parenting journeys
Our kids grow fast, and so do our numbers.
