  • Overview

    Blending physical and digital worlds, Square Panda Educational Playset is a learning tool that interacts with your iPad to create a reading playground—teaching kids to read while they're having fun playing games. Square Panda's extensive library of games prompt your children to place the included smart letters into the playset, which then causes the words they spell to appear on their iPad. Each letter is sounded out phonetically, so the child can not only see and hear the letter sound but also touch the 3D letter to combine all three senses.

    Every Square Panda game is grounded in brain science research to prepare your child to learn to read. Square Panda keeps kids engaged and makes learning fun while they learn their phonics and build their reading confidence. Reading apps feature an assessment prior to play to appropriately level and set the child up for learning success, and the levels increase in difficulty as your child learns.

    Development of Square Panda games follow research-based, proven learning techniques to help your child meet critical milestones in school. The Parent Portal allows you to monitor your child's progress, set learning levels, and add your own images and words.
