Welcome to PlayCubes’ Getting Started Guide

Tokidos PlayCubes model #: T001

Connecting PlayCubes to Wifi

Once cubes are connected, you’ll be able to download and play your new games!

It’s not necessary for the kiddos to be involved in this step. We recommend that parents / guardians do this part on their own.

1. Start by downloading the Tokidos Parental App

Download the App using the two Android and iPhone buttons below depending on the phone you have.

2. Connect to Wifi

1. Create your account on the Tokidos Parental App.
You can do so with either of the the options below:

  • Use the email you use most regularly and a password that will be easy for you to remember.
  • Quick connect by using your Gmail or Facebook accounts.

2. Turn your PlayCubes ON by pressing the top button on each cube and follow the step-by-step instructions on the App.

  • Your home’s Wi-Fi password is in hand
  • The Wi-Fi Router at home is turned on
  • Bluetooth is enabled on your phone
  • Then follow the remaining App instructions to connect to PlayCubes to Wifi.

Onboarding to PlayCubes

Now is a great time for your kiddos to be involved!

1. Select language

Once Wifi successfully connected, follow PlayCubes instructions and select your language.
This will define the default system language. If your system language is English and you purchase a game in French, it would work in French! In other words, game language is not impacted by system language.

ATTENTION: You can only change the default system language by doing a factory reset. So please make sure to select the right language from the start.

2. Follow onboarding instructions on PlayCubes

That’s a great time for your kiddos to learn the basic interactions of PlayCubes!

Once they’ve gone through the basics, your kiddos will be able to explore silly and fun interactions on PlayCubes that don’t require a card to be inserted. Just turn the PlayCubes on and have fun being silly!

Downloading and playing new games!

  1. Make sure the PlayCubes have been connected to Wifi (see instructions above).
  2. Make sure PlayCubes are within Wifi reach and within proximity from each other.
  3. Insert a new PlayCard into the Mouth cube!

  4. The game will start downloading from the cloud (and will be sorted on the cubes so you can play even when away from Wifi). 
  5. This can take from 30 seconds to 2 minutes.
  6. Once the download is complete, the PlayCubes will inform you and you’ll be ready to start playing!

Problems? If download is not working, please follow the troubleshooting instructions in the troubleshooting section of this page.

Important Parental recommendations: [To do]

  • Teach your kids to always store the cubes in their case and have the case be connected to a power outlet. That way they’ll rarely be out of battery when they want to play. This will help teach them responsibility and ownership.
  • Keep the PlayCubes somewhere visible to facilitate independence and allow your kids to take control of their play experience. PlayCubes were designed for that purpose.
