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!

Our history

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

Lingokids Rebranding

December, 2019

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.
