Edtech Literacy Platform Designed to Help Young Children Learn to Read
SUNNYVALE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#earlyliteracy–Square Panda, creator of an award-winning multisensory edtech literacy platform aimed at kids in pre-kindergarten to grade 3, announced today that its Square Panda phonics playset is available for immediate holiday purchase from Amazon, the Apple Store, BJ’s Wholesale Club and the company website.
“Unlike toys that a child plays with for a while and then ignores, Square Panda is an ideal holiday purchase—combining the fun and engagement of a favorite toy with a research-based curriculum that helps kids master key reading readiness skills,” said Andy Butler, CEO and co-founder of Square Panda. “What better gift for the young children in your life than the gift of literacy?”
The Square Panda playset and learning games combines fun, adventure and sound teaching principles to build literacy skills in children ages 2 to 8. In conjunction with an iPad or Android tablet, children can use the Square Panda playset to access dozens of learning games that playfully engage and teach them literacy fundamentals that include phonological awareness, phonics, spelling, print concepts and more.
Adaptive System Customizes Experience for Each Child
Square Panda’s phonics playset and learning games foster literacy through adaptive learning. The more that a child plays with the Square Panda playset, the more the adaptive system learns and customizes the experience for them. The games ensure that children are always in an optimal learning zone: challenged, but never overwhelmed.

- Bluetooth-enabled playset with a new smart screen
- 45 Smart Letters
- Compact stackable design
- Drawstring storage bag for letters
- Parent Portal to monitor children’s progress in mastering literacy skills
