“Children with stronger worker memory, inhibition and attentional skills have been found to make larger gains on tests of early math, language and literacy development” – Harvard University.

It’s important for children to develop their cognitive skills early in their lives. Kiko’s Thinking Time targets these skills through a variety of exercises.

Our games are designed from neuropsychological tasks that have shown promise in lab research. They are developed alongside Kiko Labs’ Scientific Advisory Board comprised of leading researchers in developmental neuroscience from Harvard and UC Berkeley.

Each game adapts to match the appropriate level of each child. This allows children to just pick up the app and play, and ensure that they are always challenged but not frustrated.

Our parents’ area offers a variety of tools & charts to view the progress of your child. See how your child is doing in 6 cognitive areas: Memory, Reasoning, Flexibility, Selective Attention, Spatial Ability and Inhibitory Control.

Safe, trusted, and fun. We take your privacy seriously. No ads, ever.

Thank you

Crazy subscription service for games a child could program

Subscription fee for this level of app is ridiculous. Someone slaps ‘Harvard’ in the description in the hopes that people will be willing to shell out big bucks. Better solutions out there for way less money.

Love this app

My son has a real problem focusing and remembering things but this app has really helped with that. He focuses so much more not just on the app but even away from it. He actually sits and plays with his toys in his room instead of throwing them everywhere and then running up and down the halls like a crazy person. Kikos has helped a lot and he loves it. He wakes up every morning and wants to play it. The games are helpful and fun and he can't wait to see what he gets in his fish tank as a reward. I also like the feature that let's you choose what you'd like to concentrate on-obviously I chose focus and memory, but there are others so that you can customize it to your child.
