Kodo Kids


In today's world, children have less opportunity to think deeply and innovate creatively. Experiences which cultivate these skill sets are largely absent in early education, at the age which these skills are most critical. Kodo Kids seeks to help provide these experiences through playful, open-ended products which promote intentional learning, investigative personalities and out-of-the-box problem solving. Through these experiences, the foundation for lifelong curiosity and development of the whole child is cultivated.
