Osmo makes learning fun by turning screen time into hands on action, which is something that makes this mom HAPPY! Little ones and family alike will be happy to find Osmo wrapped and tied with a bow, this holiday season.
Players use real objects to interact with digital via iPad or Fire tablets Their games promote learning a wide range of subjects, such as:
- Coding (Coding Awbie, Coding Jam, Coding Duo)
- Math (Numbers, Pizza Co.)
- Drawing (Monster, Super Studio, Masterpiece)
- Spelling (Words)
- Fundamentals of Physics (Newton)
- Spatial relational skills (Tangram)
- World geography (Detective Agency)
3 Starter Kits are available (for kids ages 3-5, 5-10, and 6-10) along with 16 additional games.
At Osmo, we believe in the decades of research that illustrate children learn best from hands-on education. Osmo’s games are geared toward embodied learning, meaning our games teach abstract concepts by connecting them to objects and actions in the physical world. Osmo games promote embodied learning through physical-digital interactions.
Our in-house team of child development researchers work with our designers to make sure every Osmo game reflects the principles of embodied learning. In Coding Awbie, for instance, players learn how to write lines of code by connecting and arranging physical coding blocks. Players of Pizza Co. must make quick calculations with topping and money tiles to deliver yummy pies and correct change to waiting customers. And in Tangram, players think through spatial relations to build increasingly complex shapes from smaller ones.

Two of my grandsons (now ages 7 and 11) having been playing with Osmo kits for several years, and they love them. Now, it’s time for their little sister, who will be three next month) to start her Osmo adventures. She is so very excited. Her first games will be Little Genius ABC’2 and Squiggle Magic, & Little Genius Stories and Costume Party. The 7 years old is hoping for MindRacers. Although the 11 years old, is a bit of a genius himself, and is far advanced in his studies, I think that he would even have fun with the Complete Coding Family!
