Share Article

Curious Hat today announced that it has launched Curious Playground, the latest interactive, educational app of the portfolio which has earned acclaim from parents, educators and designers around the world. Built for kids ages 3-7, Curious Playground not only allows them to learn from a host of fun activities but to also create content they can play with and share with parents and teachers for future play.

Parent, child interaction stimulates learning

Where Parent and Child Interaction Stimulates Learning

We’ve created a learning environment for kids that sparks creativity and fosters interaction with parents and teachers. - Luca Prasso, CEO of Curious Hat.

“We’ve taken the most engaging activities from our portfolio of apps and created a learning environment for kids that sparks creativity and fosters interaction with parents and teachers. The experience is the digital analogy of the physical playground that we adults loved as children,” said Luca Prasso, CEO of Curious Hat.

Within the Playground, children can explore and play with a variety of fun activities while adults can use the same app to create content that is converted into personalized experiences for the child. A photo of grandma becomes a puzzle or a memory game, a quip from Dad’s favorite song can be musically recreated and played, a cousin’s hometown can even become an exploration opportunity on a map. The interaction between the real and digital world provides limitless learning opportunities.

Curious Playground also complements the teacher’s educational curriculum. By stimulating creativity of real-world activities and sharing them with classmates and the teacher, Curious Playground serves as a key educational component of the interactive classroom. “As we migrate from a lab-centric computer environment to one where digital experiences are a core component of classroom learning, Curious Playground will provide teachers with a host of new experiences that complement the curriculum,” said Krista Inchausti, Educational Innovation Coordinator at Schools of the Sacred Heart in San Francisco, California.

Curious Playground offers many activities ranging from puzzles, memory games, music, math challenges, and word games. Other award winning apps in the Curious Hat’s portfolio can be launched directly from Curious Playground allowing the child to seamlessly play with multiple apps from one location. Over time, the range and depth of activities will continue to grow through Curious Hat development and the introduction of partner apps into Curious Playground.

Curious Playground is available now on the App Store, for free.
