We are Lingokids
We’re the Playlearning™ app for kids ages 2-8 years old.
By learning through play, your child will develop skills like creativity, collaboration, critical thinking, and communication. Join the adventure!
Houston, we have a mission…
To help 50+ 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!
