Why we're building Tokidos

Our brain is 85% developed by the time we're 5 years old! But most children products don't reflect the intelligence and capability we possess at such a young age already... We're here tochangethat! Starting with Tokidos Five, we're building enriching and ultra-fun learning experiences that truly represents the intelligence and curiosity of the next generation of humans - our children!!!

We also want this reality to be adaptive, so that the right content finds our children atthe right place and the right time!

Lots of love!

The Tokidos team!
