At first glance, Tiggly’s shapes look like parts of any other brightly colored childhood game. But, the soft plastic pieces have silicone touch points designed to interact with Tiggly apps on your iPad or iPad Mini. The shapes for both Tiggly Shapes and Tiggly Counts come in a handy little pouch complete with unlimited access to several apps designed for children ages 18 months to about 5 years that create scenes and stories from their imagination and help build shape, number and even animal recognition.
Tiggly was co-founded by Phyl Georgiou (Founder & CEO), Bart Clareman (Co-Founder & COO), and Azi Jamalian (Co-Founder & Chief Learning Officer). Phyl & Bart are graduates of Harvard Business School, and Azi is a PhD candidate in childhood development at Columbia University.
One part digital, one part tactile—Tiggly is updating classic hands-on learning toys by combining them with handheld iPad games.
