The Tiggly team is made up of PhDs, MBAs, parents, grandparents, uncles, and aunts who want to help parents introduce their children to the digital world in an easy yet educational way. Our educator-designed tablet toys interact with our learning apps because we believe there is a powerful learning opportunity in the combination of physical and digital play. Children explore geometric shapes and spatial relations by manipulating physical geometric blocks while interacting with their digital creations. Our team collaborates with Grammy and Emmy-award winning creative talent to craft products that children love and parents trust.

Ratings and Reviews
Needs a lot of work
First, I couldn't get past login with the shapes, but customer service sent me ones that seem to work marginally better (at least I got past the login). But half the time they don't register (the square seems to be particularly hard- Tiggly Safari doesn't work at all as the first thing is a square and I can't get it to register). This app has potential, but it's fairly limited- my 3yo daughter is capable of doing more than this allows her to do. It could be a lot more effective if they were all wrapped into one app, and if there were some more skill levels attended to. As it is I can't really recommend this.
Doesn't work with screen protector
Unacceptable that a toy designed for children's use won't work with a screen protector. This makes the toys for this app useless since I'm not taking the protector off and on!
Fun, creative app
I work with kids and the little ones love making silly faces with this app and taking turns. Its fun to see them play together to see what they come up with (although sometimes one tends to take a little bit more control of the 'creation' and time with the iPad). This is more of a silly, fun app than the others by Tiggly. The kids enjoy being able to share their digital creations with their parents at the end of the day.
