We founded YogiPlay with a mission to give parents more insight into what their children are learning while using mobile devices.
Menlo Park, CA (PRWEB) May 01, 2012
Today, YogiPlay announces the consumer availability of a new service designed specifically for curating mobile learning apps that are used by children ages 3 to 8. With more than 100,000 downloads and over 20,000 active customers, YogiPlay was developed to address the growing frustration by parents who are struggling to find the right, high-quality learning apps for their kids.
Every app in the YogiPlay network is carefully evaluated for age-appropriateness, educational value and, most importantly, fun. YogiPlay has a dedicated team of early childhood educational experts who qualify and rate every app for learning value and quality. In addition, YogiPlay offers access to a Parent Center where parents can receive key insights into their child's specific learning and play progress. YogiPlay then provides parents with personalized app recommendations tailor-made to meet each child’s specific interests.
YogiPlay is the brainchild of husband and wife team Cedric and Michal Sellin who are Stanford University alumni and engineers by training with entrepreneurial backgrounds. Cedric was a founding team member of Aruba Wireless Networks while Michal was one of the first engineers at Google. The Sellins decided to take their technical expertise in search and data analytics, and apply it to enhancing app recommendations within the mobile learning space for kids.
“When our daughter was two, we noticed on a long plane flight how engaged she was with a tablet, and at that moment we realized the learning potential these devices could have for children of her age. However, we soon found out how difficult it was to find the right learning apps that would not only exploit the potential of these devices, but also provide real learning value to children, in new, fun and exciting ways”. said Michel Sellin, co-founder and Chief Technologies for YogiPlay. “So we founded YogiPlay with a mission to give parents more insight into what their children are learning while using mobile devices. The goal behind YogiPlay is to help parents make healthier choices when it comes to selecting the right mobile apps for their kids."
Under their leadership, Cedric and Michal have brought together a world-class team, comprised of parents, engineers, game designers and early child-hood educational experts with experience from leading brands including: LeapFrog, Sony Network Entertainment, Imagini, Landor, GapKids and Industrious Kid.
