It’s about time: catch Wiki-Kids, an encyclopedia for 21st century kids.
Wiki-Kids was founded by Inbal Miron-Bershteyn and Yoav Meyrav. Inbal is a mother of 3 curious kids and has a passion for kids’ products management and user experience. Yoav is a father of 2, teaches philosophy at Tel Aviv University and was previously a member of the Hebrew Encyclopedia team.
The company works with psychologists and experts in literacy education to make sure that its products contribute to the development of children’s minds. It says that its goal is to create an encyclopedia for 21st century kids.
Wikids boasts that its apps feature carefully crafted text and friendly narration, along with images and sounds, offering curious kids who want to explore independently a fascinating way to broaden their horizons.
Each Wikids app contains 120 entries in 5 categories, written from the point of view of the child and presented in a captivating fashion. Wikids: Animals, Nature, Countries, Landmarks and Food and Wikids: Space, The Human Body, Musical Instruments, Occupations and Transportation will take your kids on a journey through an exciting range of topics.
Wikids states that its entries are written with the belief that almost anything can be explained to young kids in about 80 words (30 seconds narrated). Designed for independent discovery, Wikids apps present knowledge in context, with interrelated entries allowing your child to freely explore different topics. Wikids apps are 100% child safe, contain no ads, links or distractions whatsoever, and have been certified by the kidSAFE Seal Program and Momswithapps.
Inbal Miron-Bershteyn, Co-founder of Wiki-Kids, said, “As a mom of 3 curious kids who are constantly asking about everything, I was searching for an app that satisfies their thirst for knowledge in a really meaningful way, and doesn’t just focus on acquiring basic skills such as literacy and numeracy.”
“With safe, fun and enriching content on a range of topics, Wikids is perfect for kids who can recognize letters or are just starting to learn to read, but we found that even older kids just love it!”
Wikids apps are available for download on the Apple App Store.
