New York-based edtech startup Tiggly, a company offering solutions to educate children in the digital age, announced Tuesday the launch of Tiggly Counts, an iPad-compatible physical math toy for children age 3 and up.
Tiggly Counts aims to transform at-home math education for a new generation of connected kids, says the company.
“Tiggly is on a mission to improve at-home math education for preschoolers in an era when learning is going digital,” said Dr. Azi Jamalian, Tiggly co-founder and chief learning officer.
Tiggly Counts features five lightweight counting toys children can hold in their hands to physically interact with parent- and educator-approved Tiggly learning apps.
When used together during playtime, Tiggly’s counting toys and apps help children develop number sense, counting skills, and a basic understanding of math operations such as addition and subtraction.
Tiggly Counts ships with a felt carrying pouch for easy storage and transportation. The product retails for $29.95 and is available in limited release at Apple Stores, on Apple.com and on Tiggly.com in November with broader distribution to follow.
