My Very Hungry Caterpillar

It begins with a tiny egg.

Feed him, play with him, and make sure to tuck him up under his cosy leaf so he gets plenty of rest. The more the caterpillar grows the more new activities you unlock.

For 2-5 year olds

Develop nurturing skills

All children start out with an instinct to explore and discover. They especially love learing to pretend-care for characters. When these two desires are woven together it makes for powerful learning.

Encourage a love of nature

Learning to help and care for nature and the natural world encourages your child to grow into a compassionate adult.

A wide range of interactive learning activities

Children have different ways of learning and interests. Experimenting with different types of activities help you discover what your child responds best to.

Non-competitive individualized play

There are no winners or losers when it comes to learning. When designed with enough depth, non-competitive play can add tremendous replay value for learning.

Intuitive, child-friendly and easy to use

We always test our designs with children. We learn as much from them as they from us. Everything we create is child-centric and child intuitive.

It’s a world of beauty and color you’ll return to again and again
